Winter Vegies


Don’t you just love Winter Vegetables.  We have such a little space (at the moment) but we are growing a fair bit, not enough for eating every day but enough for the boys to enjoy peas for afternoon tea and a head of broccoli each week.  And plenty of herbs and greens. 

Current growing list – Winter Vegetables June 08 –

  • Broccoli
  • Snowball Cauliflower
  • Cabbages
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Telephone peas
  • Snow peas (you try telling the boys you are ment to eat the whole thing!)
  • 5 purple carrots (The ants ate most of the seeds)
  • Onions
  • 4 Celery – treating it as a pick as it grows
  • Garlic
  • Lettuce
  • 1 Eggplant (it just hasn’t died back so I let it go I bet the frosts will cut it though)
  • Rainbow Chard (love it!!!!!)
  • Silverbeet

Now I am sure I have forgotten something but wow I love my list….  I find it fascinating that only 2 and a bit hours away Rhonda at down~~~to~~~earth can grow tomatoes and what we know as summer crops now, in winter.  Oh and bananas.  Does anyone know how bananas go with frost?  LOL
