Spring Action In Our Gardens
Spring and end of lockdown are bringing us together again. And the gardens, verges and laneways and welcoming Transition Bondi’s volunteers.
Seedlings raised on windowsills, balconies and our hot-house are now putting down their roots in the garden beds.
At our recent October working bee we harvested celery, lettuce and silverbeet – such vigorous and trusty plants to grow.
We replanted the beds with leek and carrot, tomato and zucchini seedlings.
The compost was extracted and put on a couple of the citrus trees, in nearby Imperial Avenue.
It wasn’t just people who needed haircuts – we also gave an overdue trim to some shrubs and other plants drooping along the paths.
Our mid-week volunteers braved the heights of the banana palms to remove the big drooping buds – pruning, to reduce the size of the future harvest, to create better quality fruit.
Everything is growing well in the Spring, as the air and soil warms up.
Such a time of hope and future imaginings.
