Instant Tomatos

One of the first plants to go in the new garden were the Tomatoes grown for me by my Father in Law.
So Day 1 - plant Tomatoes
Day 2 net Tomatoes.

One of our most stunning birds around here is the Satin Bowerbirds. They are also quite fond of anything green in the garden including the leaves of the Tomato plants, and as of yesterday bean leaves.

We are in the process of organising netting for the vegie garden which will be followed in time by netting of the orchard - which is not really producing anything at the moment.

Baby grasshoppers are also very abundant and are having a munch on the new bean seedlings but seem not interested in the peas. More netting being thrown around as a consequence.

Lots more stuff planted in the ground and in pots - updates to follow


  1. I like the way you grow your tomatoes and can't wait to see how they look in a couple months. It looks as thoug you have a very nice garden area there.

  2. Hi Mr H. My tomatoes probably needed longer stakes but at least they are in. They have put on a bit of growth and are flowering well. Yes the fenced garden area is very pleasing - we have nearly finished our terracing (keep getting mixed up with trellising when i talk to people about it - not used to hills). Netting is this weeks project!

    Rach - we are enjoying ourselves - even though paradise has a few prickles and blisters to deal out.
