Gardens : Part 5

We staked the peas today. It looks like a little bit of a mess but it should work.
Our cucumber seedlings were big enough to transplant so they were put next to the radishes. 3 plants in total, I just hope at least one of them survives.
So far the survival rate for seedlings has been very good. The only seedlings which have perished are those which were unknowingly walked upon by Jade, and then there was still quite a few which survived.
Our tomato seeds never came up so we planted those straight into the garden bed. It is supposed to rain today so I have put off watering the garden.
We enjoyed our first strawberry of the season also. The kids each having a little bit of it.
So far we have planted -
  • basil
  • corriander
  • oregano
  • parsley
  • garlic chives
  • dill
  • tomatoes
  • cucumbers
  • french radishes
  • snow peas
  • peas
  • strawberries
  • daisies
  • cornflowers
  • pansy
  • snapdragons
  • lavender
  • gardenia
  • chrysantheum
and there is still heaps of garden space to go!
