Climbing snow pea - climbing up the back fence and looking quite healthy - I have successive sown some more seeds about a week ago.
Basil seed mat - doing really well in my herb spiral.
Carrot seed tape - I have put these tapes in different areas - alongside the harlequin carrots, and between the tomatoes as they are good companion plants. They look very neat in their evenly spaced rows and are very easy to plant - great for children.
Carrot Harlequin - these look very robust and are doing very well - I keep assigning more space to them - in fact all the seeds are now planted out!
Parsnip Gladiator - sent to Sunny corner farm
Radish beauty heart - I need to figure out why my radishes do not form bulbs! I just grow radish tops!
Silver beet organics - I have planted them in two different areas, but they seem very, very slow growing. I do like them in the little jiffy pots as they are so easy to transplant out into the garden.
Parsley Italian garden pot - this started so well with its little sauna cover and I have now planted them out into the herb spiral where it is very happy. This is a great way to start parsley.
Strawberry temptation garden pot - the strawberry seeds never came up, but I planted some lettuces into the pot once I gave up on the strawberries and they have done well. My grandson who does not eat anything green has been picking and eating the lettuce leaves - hooray!
Here are the harlequin carrots with the (little) silverbeet in little jiffy pots alongside.
Mr Fothergills containing the capsicum seven colors heirloom and blue lake green beans. The capsicum seem quite slow growing, but it may be because our weather is much cooler than normal. We also have had a lot of overcast days so they are not getting the sunshine needed for optimal growth. I have planted them next to some cherry tomatoes along the back fence next to the herb spiral. Capsicum and tomato are also supposedly good companions.
The black beans had shriveled away so I planted the blue lake beans against this fence and they seem to be doing well. Some silverbeet are struggling along in front of them - I am hoping with some sunshine predicted this week they will take off. In front of the ginger were some tropic tomatoes - they all died from wilt - I wont try them again. Replacing them are tommy toe tomatoes and I have put carrot tape between them.
