Garden ready!

Its a rainy old day in Melbourne today and I managed to get a few spare moments to pop out and inspect some of the plants.

They have been a little bit neglected in recent weeks after the arrival of baby Ruby but things are still growing.  I planted these Yates lebanese cucumbers from seed on day 34 of the challenge, so they have been a little bit slow to get going, although from now on I am expecting them to start climbing up this trellis and hopefully producing nice fat cucumbers for Christmas! With the arrival of the first flow today I think that this might even be a possibility. I just have to remember to help the plants out a little bit every week by poking the growing tips through the wires so that they  weave in and out and get the support they need.
