Preparing the back bed. Goodbye Sunflowers!

Today I cut down the sunflowers and hung the heads to dry. A Red-capped Parrot visited the garden in the late afternoon and was a little put out to say the least. Where is my snack?
The leaves are really quite big and the heads on some of the plants are larger than dinner plates. The rest of the plants are going back into the garden bed which I will be getting ready tomorrow so that it is ready for an autumn crop and to get the soil built up a little better during the winter.
I also picked tomatoes and got seeds ready for saving. They are in water solution at the moment and should be ready for drying in a couple of days.

About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.
