Calla Lilies from Seed

I got my very first Calla Lily flower on Xmas Eve from the plants I grew from seed. Now that colour is showing, it will help when I sell them soon.

Here are some photos taken in the last week.

Summer Has Arrived

Our day of 40C came and went, with no noticeable casualties in the garden, so all good until next time.

Quiet in the Garden

It's fairly quiet in the garden, with everything growing happily, so not a lot to post about on the blog.

I got my stitches out on Friday and my head feels better for it, so a haircut and a good shampoo did wonders as well. 

We spent Friday night in Ararat staying at Anh's Motel and had a great meal (banquet) in the restaurant. Came back yesterday and stopped at Beaufort and noticed they had a Market, so decided to have a wander. We saw a stall selling tomato plants so went over for a look. I said to the lady setting up, "Is your name Penny", so we met with long time forum member Penny and her husband.

In the garden

The Onions, Butter Beans, Telephone Peas and Tomato plants are all doing well, but the hotter weather will put them under some strain in the coming weeks. I managed to get a few bags on the flower trusses of my tomatoes and give them a light prune. Jan's Potatoes are a metre high now, so all being well they'll have produced heaps of spuds to make it worthwhile.

Lots to do in the coming few weeks as I'm selling off a lot of plants, so need to sort and pack them ready for that. The Calla Lilies will need to come out of the cold frame as it's getting hot in there now and although they don't mind it hot, may end up getting cooked in there if we get a real hot day.

I got a new domain name for my practice web page, so once that's up and running I'll close up shop on Crazy Domains and then think about a holiday.
