Well I have got some herbs going and boy have I slaughtered the weeds this weekend.  I have to grow some grass where the pool was eek so I guess I have to get some topsoil first. 

I am going to plant some climbers tomorrow.

if your toms have only just sprouted I'd get along to a garden centre and get a few that are a bit bigger, if they are to late in the season you may have a limited crop otherwise...

Mitre 10 actually have a really good low acid yellow tomato they do and it is a great crop, the fruit are edible from when they are a pale yellow until the turn nearly yellow/orange on the plant (they last really well) kind of a good cooking tomato, they seem like a cross between a low acid and a beefsteak but they're good raw too.  yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh

When I get me breath back...going to plant strawberries in the garden
previously tenanted by the NOW EVICTED g-nomes 

First got to finish removing the stones (they're going to another part of the garden)
then the weed guard stuff, (with weeds growing thru it)
then dig up the compacted soil
then dig in some compost (that was here when I moved in)...

...AND DONT FORGET THE SUNSCREEN PEOPLE, WHEN YOU'RE WORKIN' OUTDOORS EH
