My poor veggie patch has been sadly neglected and it has only been through me getting up at the crack of dawn to try and get these weeds under control that my patch might be alright for this season and feed us. These plants of broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower I planted at the beginning of winter and I don't know how but they survived and are still growing I haven't been gardening for long and I don't know very much about plants or gardening I have always had a brown thumb not a green one and I always seen to kill the most hardy of plants.
Under the cardboard are the weeds that have been pulled out, I'm hoping by the time I get back to the weeds they could be dead and decomposing into the soil (I sound so intelligent when it comes to the garden) There is also a bucket of liquid fertilizer (Horse manure) my seedling tray and also an empty box of cat biscuits (I have no idea why, probably for recycling)
Here are the turnips I also planted last season more weeds going wild in the back ground, my tank drums also full of weeds
Here is my no dig garden with rhubarb in the corner. I'm hoping this will be the answer to my prayers in regards to the weed problem, I can get heaps of manure and newspaper for nothing and lucerne is fairly cheap at the moment. I can just keep adding to it and pull out any stubborn weed.
This is my last big patch of weeds I'm hoping to pull out tomorrow morning. I did have big plans for my veggie patch but due to Dave's accident they were put on hold because I have had to work at our business 7 days a week but I'm getting there. If anybody has any advice or suggestions about keeping a veggie patch healthy and weed free I would gladly accept them.
