Tuesday Garden Journal

Join in on Tuesday Garden Journal time, sharing what you are up to in your garden....

It might be what you are planting in the garden...

... pet antics...

.... family occasions, get-togethers, picnics...

... hints and tips - family garden secrets (like how to keep wombats from eating your crop)..

but it all must be in your garden!

Link in... share the joy xx


I am really passionate about sharing our Aussie gardens.  Whether it is nationally or internationally - my hope for this Tuesday Garden Journal is that we learn and connect from each other.  When setting up the idea of this link-up, I did begin it on a Thursday; forgetting about the wonderful Our Creative Spaces that so many join in with.  Hence the change to Tuesdays (and by the time Thursday came around - my head was muddled with what day of the week it actually was!).

So here is the beginning of Tuesdays.  Please spread the word.  I have so much to learn and share about gardening, becoming more self-sufficient and sharing the joy the outdoors brings!


This past few days at our house has been full of planting what we can.  I don't know how long it is going to take to clear the bush from the perimeter of our house; but I figure we will plant out whatever we clear. 


Miss G chose some paper daisies to plant along our front steps.  I remember my friend Mel planting them years ago - these are our first ever.

We dug up Mexican Orange Blossom seedlings that had sprouted in the old house and planted them along the driveway - it should make a nice hedge.  I really am into growing, multiplying and planting out our garden with as little cost as possible.

I planted tomatoes, pumpkin, marigolds and californian poppy's in the little cleared patch by the front path near the hopefully recovering mandarin tree.

Lupins also transplanted, they are starting to shoot new leaves!

Tomatoes with flowers... a bit of a head start I am hoping!

The photo's are taking ages to load and I just read some sad news at another blog - so will leave it there for now.

Looking forward to reading your gardening blogs... please spread the word!
