Winter plantings

We planted some mini cauliflower seedlings yesterday. Clancy grew them from seed in a big pot.

More potatoes are surfacing as well which is a good sign. I dug up one that was rotten so far, hopefully that's the only one, but the bed, although no-dig, is quite water logged given the amount of rain we've had in the last week. I forgot how torrential Perth rain is!

We also picked a couple of beetroot and some baby carrots over the weekend and the carrots are really sweet - they are a baby carrot variety.

We also fed our citrus trees with the worm castings from our worm farm which needed a bit of a clean out. They've grown heaps in this past month or so and always seem to respond well after a bit of a prune.

Other vegies on the move include snow peas, pak choi, Swiss chard, variety of lettuce and rocket and the herbs too! Who says winter is for hibernating?! ;-)

Happy gardening!


  1. I'm with you! I love winter in the veggie patch as much as spring and summer. Apart from the weed situation.

  2. Just checked out our activities from this time last year - been a productive year really! Nice to see the garden developing and chaning in that time :o)
