Planting seeds

I couldn’t be there yesterday but, as usual, my fellow volunteers were hard at work tending the Food Garden of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.

Thanks to Pam we can see the soy bean story continuing – you will remembering the recent podding of the beans from this year’s crop. It was time to plant.

Each bean was dropped into its own shallow hole.

The beans are now resting, after a good watering, in both a large and a small garden bed. With the warmer weather they should germinate quickly.

  1. It’s always a thrill to see the tiny shoots poking through the soil, but sometimes hard to resist the temptation to dig around to see what’s going on underneath the soil!
    I don’t know about the warmer weather though – certainly having a cold snap at the moment.
