Garden Update — Snail Snail, go away come again another day!
So here you have it, my vegetables will have to be not so organic as our garden seems to be overloaded with snails, 3 pots are completely eaten, and the rest have been used as starters for tomorrow’s banquet it seems.
So yes I have now used pesticide, be it only 1/10th of the recommended dose, and I sprayed most of it on the planks and outer part of the pots which is the way the slugs must reach there, unless they are Ninja slugs and leap through the sky to them, so most of the plant hasn’t really been touched by the pesticide…..because I really would like to have healthy veggies and not poisoned stuff! This also means that the copper plates I placed on top the soil doesn’t help at all, its supposed to scare away slugs and snails, but well luckily they only cost HK$ 10 for a pack of 8. so there you go that was a waste.
I think I am going to put everything high of the ground on tables until the plants become to big as soon as my bird cage is ready, here is a picture of the garden with the seedlings kept under the green tent and the frame ready for being covered by nets for the bigger plants, a door will be made in it and the thing can be enlarged by placing more frames next to each other, cheap and cheerful.
Right hand side of the picture here above you can just see the edge of some concrete steps which are under repair now, and will most likely become a big potted herb garden over time, straight ahead there are already 3 big pots of mint growing and ready to go onto the steps.
anyway that far for the update!
oops, just managed to finally order some more seeds, so on the way are now also:
Green Zuchinni, Lemon Balm, Basil, Thyme, Lemon Thyme, Chives, Chervil, Lavender, Marjoram, Mint, Black Italian eggplant, asian eggplant, white baby eggplant, cucumbers, pickling gherkins, patty pan squash to name a few.
Until later, Ciao
