Our weather has been unpredictable during the last month. We had horrendously hot weather late in the season and last week was very wet. This week it's cool in the mornings and at night, summertime has ended, but the days are clear and fine.
We had put off our winter plantings waiting for a fine spell and today was that day. After swimming we went to the nursery and Ella helped me choose our winter veg. Most of them I haven't grown before and my plantings aren't as neatly planted as I'd like, mainly because I wanted to cram in as much as possible and despite extending the vegie plot about half a metre, it's still on the small side.
- Kipfler potatoes although these are in a huge pot
- Carrots, two varieties although I think both are fairly pedestrian - baby and early crop
- Beetroot - which I love, but I'm the only one
- Baby cabbages
- Sprouting broccoli
- Broad beans
My camera is still on the blink so I had to include a photo of one of the vegie nymphs in our summer crops!
