In the garden... again

Yesterday I tried to study but I was so distracted I ended up gardening. I've done so much in the yard the last couple of weeks and it's really looking great. There are still a few spots that are overcome by weeds but I'll get to them eventually! The weather has been divine, until the 34c days started to appear. I hate to think what it's going to be like over summer, the official one anyway! 

This is how our front bed was looking. Chinese celery and Miner's lettuce going to seed and lots of nut grass, wandering dew and other weeds. So I pulled out the grown lettuce and Miner's lettuce and trimmed everything back that was staying and planted lots of new things.

The trellis is for a choko that I planted. I did want it going over the front gate but the ground is so dry I'm going to have to thump stakes in to make holes or I might bend the trellis a bit much trying to get it in. (It's just a $20 cheapie from Bunnings) 


And my updated what's growing in my garden list.... what I'm nurturing anyway :) (lots of corrections because I pulled out my seeds to put the full names in where I could so I can keep a track of what's growing well)
