We have spent several enjoyable days working in our garden. The weather has been lovely and we have been able to make lots of mulch from our winter pruning's.

We have made a zucchini bed, a potato cage bed and a pumpkin patch. Our artichoke bed is looking good and we have lots of mulberries on our small trees.

The highlight of our garden is the herbs, rapa and rocket plants going to flower and forming seed.

We have planned our summer garden and we will are just hoping that we do not have heatwaves and that we can keep our garden healthy and productive. So for the moment we are dreaming of a mild Adelaide summer with tropical rain showers and cool nights. Reality will hit in January or even in November like last year.

Happy gardening to all.

Your garden is looking good Maggie - are you also getting more rain than noral or is it just Queensland?

Everything is looking so healthy and lush. Let's hope we don't have the heatwaves we had last summer!

Everything looks lovely, though these pictures are a tease! We're preparing for winter here- I'm bundled in layers myself, with a few blankets covering things in the garden!
I hope your season goes well. I'll have to check in for some inspiration over the next few months.
