100 Days Project

Catherine's Garden: To capture my garden’s transformation from winter to spring.

It is mid winter and my garden lies dormant and neglected. Over the next 100 days I will record it's progress and mine as we both wake up to spring!
This is not only going to teach me an awful lot about gardening but also about downloading images. I can see I am going to learn a lot!

Day 62:

Mulching

The garden is built on a porous rocky base and the water drains away very quickly. Especially in exposed north facing areas.

After weeding and hoeing the bed, adding a mulch of compost combined with pea straw helps to retain the moisture in the ground.

5 bags of compost for $19.40. Too good a bargin to resist. Thanks Mitre 10!
