Rhubard, Ginger & Space Ideas.

Today's an extremely windy day. Winds up to 45km/h and temperate 21deg cel. We had a relaxing day - swimming in the morning, lunch at IKEA, then back home to do some gardening. Hubby helped me to put up some fixtures so I can put my strawberry pots up and clear some more space for planting. I also planted some edible ginger (from market) in two 40cm deep pots in a mixture of propagating sand, premium potting mix and mixed manure.  I hope to be successful at growing ginger for consumption.  I also planted a Sydney Crimson rhubard which I bought from Bunnings two days back :

Good space idea (above) - fixtures on beams to hold pots.

Another good space idea (above) - brackets on wall to hold pots. Their weight should help them not to be blown off by strong winds, today's wind condition will be the test.

I sliced the ginger (quite cheap this time of the year) pieces where the green buds are and placed them in a shallow bowl of water for a day before planting.  Here is where I obtained the information about planting ginger  :
