Been A While

I know it's been a little while. But there's a reason for this. 

The Logan City Council has been in my yard, pulling up the sewage lid and sending cameras down there to check out the way it all runs underground.

Gross, right?

Yep, I thought so too.

Anyway, the chemicals on the camera to kill the germs in the sewer have killed off most of my lawn - so I'm up for lawn seed just before Spring (it won't work in Winter as I don't get any sun in my yard over that season). And I'm now pulling out bindis by the handful - right on schedule - as they're growing green and in huge clusters around the lawn; but not near the clothesline.

More recently, I've been potting up plants that need it badly. And since we've been getting overnight showers once in a while here in Brisbane, they've been settling in really well. 

I bought that $16 pot and planted up that lovely Large Leaf Jade in it and it's taken quite well to it. I'm looking at the sun-loving Brom and have found its pup really needs a pot around the same size; so I'll be needing to get my butt back to Bunnings to score myself another pot around the same size, with more stones for drainage, and yep, more potting mix. this will take time and seeing I only deal in cash, I'm not in any big hurry to get it done.

I'm also hoping to work more on the Frangipani cuttings as they don't have enough potting mix to make them really sprout... so, they have to have more potting mix put into their pots; which I'll be doing this arvo.  And while I'm there, I'll pot up the other Small Leaf Jades into the pots I scored from the Logan City Council, so they're ready by Summer to sell or give away, or to place into bigger pots for the garden and make into money plants. 

My planning for the garden has been put back a month; and I hate that. But seeing it's so chilly lately, I'm glad to say that I'm able to work on the yard more. Until my next post, happy gardening.
