|Sweet corn and re-grown celery plant|
I did however plant Sweet Corn about 4 weeks ago as the garden beds were virtually empty except for a lonely capsicum bush and some parsley. Sweet Corn requires a lot of water if you want juicy sweet cobs and with all our rain and warm weather it is growing beautifully. See the re-grown celery just at the end of the corn bed? This is the celery from my previous blog post here on regrowing your store bought celery.
|Seed tray with Broccoli and Leeks seeds - recycled cat litter tray|
This year however the temperature has been below average and although it is really quite humid because we have had so much rain, I decided to make a start on my seedlings a few weeks early. Yesterday I sowed seeds of Broccoli, Bush Beans and Leeks, fingers crossed they will all do well. I have used the cat litter tray from the recycle centre in Saturday's post.
|Recycled seed tray with drainage holes|
The drainage holes in the cat litter tray were created by heating up a skewer over the gas flame and just poking it through until I had as many as I needed.

|Dismal attempts at tomato growing in these hanging containers|
As you can see I didn't have very much success with the tomatoes at all. The plant was only small and each one only produced 1 or 2 fruit so when it is time to plant tomatoes again this year I am going back to growing them in a normal garden bed. The strawberries went okay and I will give them another try this year.
Has anyone else had any success with these bags?
