The beans are growing nicely, but some tomato seedlings, which had popped up from seeds in the worm castings, where flopping all over the place. The spot isn’t sunny enough for tomatoes, so I pulled them all out.
Then I added a bit more goodness and microbial action to the soil by burying some Bokashi compost right at the bottom and well away from the bean plants. Bokashi compost is acidic, however once it is buried for seven to 10 days it neutralises as it breaks down.
Then it was time to plant some seeds. I chose seeds that can handle the part shade of our south-west facing balcony – rocket, mixed lettuce, perpetual spinach and coriander. The Johnny Jump Ups will hopefully add a bit of colour and fun for the girls.
