This is the time of year it makes you think gardening in Brisbane is possible. On Saturday I put in the vege patch. Tomatoes, basil, capsicum, cucumbers and parsley. I know basil loves the climate here, tomatoes do okay as long as it doesn’t get too stormy for and they get waterlogged. The others are more experimental.

This year, I have covered the whole lot in a 5 foot high tent arrangement of netting right down to the ground. Hopefully this will keep the possums from eating everything in sight. Today is Wednesday and so far so good.

Fingers crossed!
