Today I finally caught up on the weeding of our main garden which is going to (hopefully) grow most of our winter vegies. To the left is a photo I took when we first moved in. Below, is a photo I took today.

As you can tell, the garden had been badly neglected but after cleaning it up, I planted a Potato patch at the far end, cut back the Silverbeet that was already there to allow new healthy growth, planted some Brassicas, and laid down some black plastic in areas where I plan to put my next lot of seedlings. The black plastic is a temporary measure to keep the weeds suppressed and keep the soil from drying out. I don't think dry soil will be a problem now that we are finally out of a drought. The main problem is trying to control the weeds that have suddenly gone wild. after all of the rain.
