Garden Veg

Story location: Home / Blog / house /
22/Apr/2008

It's vegetable growing time again. Unlike last year, when our herbs got eaten by slugs and our courgettes didn't grow very well, I'm better prepared. The slug pellets are ready to be used, and I've bought some slow-release plant food pellets.

Last month I planted various vegetable seeds: peppers, courgettes, assorted salad veg. They were in a propagator indoors, but are probably ready to plant out now.

I also planted some spinach beet in a trough in the garden. I had to put some mesh over the trough after I found them dug up. It turned out that a neighbourhood cat had used it as a toilet. I used to like cats, but not when they poo in my veg. We've bought some cat repellent now, so we'll have to see if that helps.
