Re: Dale's Garden

This wierd weather this last week has certainly agreed with two things.  My brocolli seeds and "meadow mushrooms" growing in the back lawn.

This is about half of this batch.  Normally get mushrooms growing right through to July in our back lawn.  Boscaiola for dinner tonight!

Next year try to plant some flowers to attract the bees. You may include some edible flowers too.
I add the edible flowers to the salad and they are always a good conversation starter in a dinner party.

Happy gardening!

G'day Jason & MartyH

Our attempt at growing carrots resulted in distorted stumpies like yours. I googled around & found that the carrot is sort of the root system, & that too much fertilising makes them lazy.

I think Dale's onto it with his deep loose soil & natural goodness from the worms.

I've done the first thining of the carrots.  OMG they taste fantastic!  We had chicken stir fry tonight.  :wink:
