I've got all my winter veggies in now. Some are doing quite well, some less so but I guess that's how it goes when you are a novice gardener. I've been picking and eating lettuce, spring onions and silverbeet and the chooks have been getting some turnip tops - they love then! It's been such a dry autumn in Melbourne though so I think things are off to a bit of slow start. Here is an update of what is where.
Bed 1: onions, leeks and garlic chives (these haven't grown all that much since I planted them about a month ago), turnips, parsnips and spring onions.
Bed 2: Broccoli (green and purple sprouting), cabbage and cauliflower, rocket and radishes. The broccoli and cabbages were planted about a month ago and are doing too badly apart from where the chickens escaped and had a good peck.
Bed 3: Lettuce (cos, yellow and green and red varieties), silverbeet and baby spinach. Just sown more lettuce seeds. Shallots.
Bed 4: snow peas (sown about a month ago), climbing peas and broad beans (sown last week). Bok Choi.
Bed 5: preparing to sow potatoes in August.
Little FB's garden is doing well. The slugs and snails had a field day on his bok choi but the peas and silverbeet look good. My parsley and baby spinach are doing well in the pot too.
