Sweetcorn

This bed here is half my sweetcorn bed (I've got two 3m x 1m beds next to each other, so I generally count them as one bed).  At the end of July I put in a heap of sweetcorn seed. One germinated and I bought the rest from the seedling lady at Hornsby markets.  Then in September I put in another heap of sweetcorn seed.  Four germinated and those shorties at the front are also courtesy of the seedling lady in Hornsby. sigh.

Though slightly dismayed - which you kind of get used to when you have such regular gardening disasters as I do - am not put off.  Here is the other half of that bed.  I've just pulled up all the bolting lettuce and laid it over the soil to protect it a bit due to all the heavy rain we're getting at the moment (not that I'm complaining or anything).
I'm planning on putting seed in this bed in the very near future, so I reckon the seedling lady can expect another visit in around three weeks or so.

sigh.

Hi Caitlyn,
I've not left a comment before, but I as a SAHM I really enjoy reading your posts. I just wanted to say congratulations on the house and the finances. It can feel like such a struggle day-to-day, and it's great to reach a milestone to show it's all been worth it (or at least, not completely in vain). Karen from Perth. x

Hey Karen, thanks so much for saying hi :) and the great comment. Just read that My Bank has just raised its interest rates above the rba ones, so I needed a comment to make me smile just then!

I've always wanted to have a small garden but never lived in a place where I could do it.
