Hey everyone, I'm keen to know how the Autumn/Winter veggies are going. I haven't got as much in as I'd like but I have a couple of things that are humming along.
Check out this pic of my garlic from a week ago.
If you look closly you'll see I've got some snow peas coming up at the end where I left the trellis up from my tomatoes over summer.
The far bed still has capsicums that continue to produce. I've had these plants in for almost 18 months now. They survived last winter and had a bumper crop this year. I'm wondering/hoping that I'll be able to do the same again. Does anyone know how long they last?
Out the back my strawberries are still firing which is amazing because they're costing about $5 for 15 in the shops now.
I've also planted carrots which seems slow to come up, sugar snap peas and have seed trays full of lettuce, onions, spring onion, kale, silverbeet and coriander. I'll post more photos of them once they're worth looking at.
What have you got it and how's it looking after this warm autumn we've had?
Welcome to Workshop. It's great to have you join us. I hope you find the site to be informative, inspiring and plenty of fun.
Also if you've just dug in the manure you might want to wait a week or two before planting anything directly into the soil. You can burn plants if the manure hasn't decomposed a bit before it touches them.
Also if you're going to plant cauliflower or cabbage you'll want to find a way to make sure those nasty cabbage moths don't lay their eggs all through them. I use some netting to keep them safe.
What a wonderful front yard veggie patch! So productive too!
A friend of mine had his capsicum plant for the third consecutive year. He overwinter it in his greenhouse and change pot every Spring. Good luck with your capsicum plants.
@QuailFlock wow 3 years! Mine are in a garden bed rather than a pot so I'm not sure how they'll go. I'll persist with them though, hopefully they'll last again. Thanks.
Anytime is a good time. All you need is to plant the right veggies that love the cold and wet. Go down to Bunnings and check out their veggie seedlings aisle in the nursery. Ask the staff for professional advices while you are there.
Good luck and hope that in 4-6 weeks you will be enjoying your yummy produce!
