Anticipation

Posted on

Bare earth or lovely veg?Remember the old ketchup adverts featuring the Carly Simon song “Anticipation” in which people tipped the glass bottle over and waited for the sauce to come out? Well, this week the feeling is reversed. After raking and weeding and pulling and levelling, Graeme and I are rather keen on planting. In fact, everyone who visited the garden-to-be saw not bare dirt but beans and lilacs and so on.

Potential for posiesWe did the work this past Wednesday and today I planned to fill a Zip car with greenery goodness. Apparently, other car-rental members had other ideas for the wheels. Like many of my plans, this one must be deferred, which is making me crazy because it’s perfect planting weather: warm, cloudy, and ready to rain this evening. Bah. Of course this kingdom shan’t be lost for want of a car, but it’s frustrating.

Perhaps it’s time for a related plan: what to plant, where and how. Lists! Yes, I’m good at those.

    Hi Carol,
    Your plot is looking good. I’ve recently started gardening myself – in Perth, WA, which is a nice temperate part of the world. I have to say, getting out into Autumn sun and pulling weeds and spreading seed is great for the soul. Put in some winter greens (rocket and mustard) and also some shallots today. Fingers crossed.
    I’m looking forward to more posts and pics of how your garden develops.
    Stay well,
    M

  2. Thanks, Melissa! It’s lovely to hear from you. Seems strange to talk about autumn planting: it hit about 30 C today and it’s not even summer. Good luck with your veg! Stay tuned for more posts, too.
