Pool to pond and other things . . .

Posted in Garden Diary by Jane Griffiths on the April 12th, 2011

My berries are doing so well – we made a “Berry Alley” out of gum poles and wire and have been persuading the raspberries, blackberries and tayberries to stay inside this caged off area.

It’s been working really well. Instead of rampant growth all over the garden and out of hand brambles, here they are, neatly contained and fruiting abundantly – and they are easy to pick.

The last of the potato harvest:

You would never find one like this in the supermarket!!!!

And the last of the tomatoes . . .

Here are some pics of the ongoing pool conversion process:

Making the supports for the plants:

The steps have become a holding area for plants.

Pots being drilled and waiting to be filled . . .

And it is already looking beautiful – I loooove the reflections. And if you look into the water it is clear all the way to the bottom, but because the sides and bottom are black, it reflects.

And out of the garden into the kitchen – I did a dem at Angela Day which was fun

And gave a workshop at The GardenShop in Pretoria . . .

    Thank you for the inspirational talk held in Pretoria. Went straight home and made snail traps, although I must admit sharing my Castle Lite with the snails was a bit difficult. Bought your book for myself as a christmas gift and a week ago harvested my first potatoes…OMG…I don’t normally eat starch…well thats almost all I ate for a week. DEVINE…Thanks again.
