It's Autumn, what shall we plant?

Clancy and I are looking at the Gardening Australia Vegie Guide to see what we can plant in our garden beds, now the Summer seems to be over.

We found this article by Millie Ross which shows how to plant out a bean chubby house! Clancy thought that would be very cool :o). As our grapevine is beginning to lose its leaves, it would be good to plant beans at the end of the raised bed that is next to the vine so we can string the beans across to it to provide a tent-like cover for Clancy (and Alfie) to play under. Worth experimenting anyway.

Other things Clancy would like in the garden include beetroot, potatoes (we haven't planted them in our Perth garden yet, only back in Canberra, Clancy says), sweet potatoes and of course some purple, yellow and orange flowers!

Happy gardening!


  1. I'm really interested to see how the beans turn out at this time of year. And the cubby house sounds like fun. I'm going to wait until June to plant my spuds this year. In the mean time I've put in some Cavelo Nero and some late Brussel Sprouts. I love this time of year.

    1. We always seem to get really good bean crops, so trying them out throughout the year. Will post pics as they grow so you can see the cubbyhouse take shape too :o)

      Let us know how your Cavelo Nero go - I'm keen to hear if Perth's climate suits it.

      I love Autumn too - although still very warm (still used to Canberra's four season I think!).
