Veggie Garden Update
My lettuces have essentially lain over and gone to sleep..... on long leggy stalks. Anyway I planted some seeds and we will see what comes up. Snow peas, lettuce, radish, silverbeet, green beans, gemsquash, amaranth. Our winter has been strange - a lot hotter than normal, and we have been getting quite regular rain. I would like a little touch of winter before it starts getting hot and humid again.....
The eggplant has been producing wonderfully while I was away and my hubby doesn't eat them, so the neighbours have been lucky. No more flowers - I wonder, is that it? Too late to plant more? I must do some research as I think they should grow pretty much year round here. I do want to find a selection of veggies that produce well in this area.
So far the best producers have been
Snow peas (if we get enough cold)
This winter has been very strange with warmer temperatures, and much more rain than usual. Whatever....... it is so good to be getting out there and getting some dirt under my fingernails once again. (Arent we gardeners strange!, and to think I had a manicure four weeks ago!)
