Let nature take over

For the week I'll let nature do its stuff. I cut the lawns back to the lowest setting and got some "bounce back" organic pellets onto them, then 10mm of rain.

I also got the last parts of the first veg bed in, it now has rocket, lettuce, broccoli, spinach, silverbeet, broccoli, beetroot and the first four tomatoes.

I'm trying something new with tomatoes, growing them out through a picket fence on a north face. That'll let the sun hit the foliage, but keep the sun off the soil during the major heat of summer. We'll see.

But for now it's raining and I've got well over a week's work to do. So I'll let nature run with it for a week.
