The side garden has been finished, it just needs more soil and a pebble path. I am currently growing seedlings of rhubarb, coriander, basil, oregano and lemongras in preparation for planting the house side of the side garden. Sweet corn has already been planted. Lettuce and carrots and herbs (parsley, coriander, dill, oregano, thyme) are producing lots of produce, and the sprouts are slowly maturing (despite attacks by caterpillars). I need to visit Bunnings again soon to get stuff to treat the powdery mildew in the back garden, and whatever is eating the sap out of the sweet pea leaves. Also to get more compost, mulch, stakes and wire. The next major things are to chop the lilly pilly (well, some of it - scale), nectarine, kill the jasmine, empty the pond (again), and turn the compost.
