This is my very favourite time for gardening. The days are warming up but not yet too hot. Seeds and vegetables are growing at a fast pace. While it hasn't rained here for a few months, I am managing to keep water up to all the plants. Luckily we have a couple of water tanks for the garden. But here we are only in October and they are both almost dry!
What I am growing in the vege patch:
eggplants, tomatoes, silverbeet, chilli, cos lettuce, cucumbers, beetroots, rocket, pumpkins, potoatoes, sweet potatoes, capsicum, spaghetti squash and loads of different herbs.
I am harvesting: Green beans, cos lettuce, beetroot leaves (for salads), chilli, rocket and herbs.
My veges grow in a special raised vege bed (above) as well as in other garden beds where ever there is a space. The herbs are scattered around the garden and I always have pots of herbs growing by the laundry door where they are easy to get to quickly.
I am hoping it rains very soon!
