I haven’t had a lot of time to spend gardening these past few weeks and despite having a heavy layer of mulch in the main bed, the weeds are starting to go crazy. The amazing soil and climate here on the island is a catch 22. While food grows quicker than normal, so do the weeds.
So I spent some time pulling weeds and generally giving the garden bed a tidy up.
The sweet basil had gone to wood so it was time for a transplant.
As much as I love the nasturtiums they are taking over the garden bed. I’ve planted some cuttings elsewhere on the property and they are taking off. So I gave these lot a good cut back. Under all of the leaves and flowers are hundreds of seeds.
Now that the nasturtiums were cleared back, I planted a row of carrots and celery. In a few weeks they should be looking good.
