Apparently it is Tuesday again (how do they keep sneaking up on me?) which means it’s time to link up with L from 500m2‘s Succession Planning Tuesday!
As is useful for me on a Tuesday I didn’t realise that it was Tuesday until around 7pm – this week I’m blaming the public holiday yesterday for throwing my body clock out. I don’t know what excuse I’ll use next week. This means that I didn’t put a whole lot of thought into my succession planning for this week, but I did think it was time that I pricked out the capsicum plants I tried growing from seed recently.
That pointy grass-like plant next to it is a chilli seed I planted. I’m somewhat intrigued that two such similar plants have such different vegetation. Perhaps I am wrong and those aren’t capsicum and chilli plants?
A couple of the “chilli” plants got repotted too. Hopefully they grow a bit better now and I’ll be moving them into a bigger bed once I finally get my raised garden beds!
I also decided that I should probably direct plant some snowpeas before it’s too late.
In a twist on the “three sisters” planting I popped some of these seeds along the base of my sweetcorn. There’s already a pumpkin floating around there, so we’ll see whether the peas are strong enough to make it past.
While I was planting the snowpeas in the ground I noticed that, while I might not be doing great job of succession planning, my garden seems to be all over it.
Pretty sure those two are volunteer tomato plants. And since I’ve already spotted another volunteer tomato in the garden I’ve got to wonder what’s going on this year – I’ve never had volunteer tomatoes before!
You can’t tell from this photo, but it’s got some flowers on it, too. I wonder what variety it will be…
How is your succession planning going? Has your garden taken it into its own hands?
