Autumn garden part 2

Here's the picture of the snow-peas and peas. I was worried that I planted them a little too early - we had to cover them with shadecloth during the hottest weather - but they seem to be enjoying the cooler Autumn weather.

The freezer now has worms in it and some of the seeds are sprouting. Planted are Celery (Tall utah), Spinach (Winter giant), Pak Choi and Bok Choy. If there is any room, I have some Cabbage (sugarloaf) just sprouting in some paper pots (actually they're toilet rolls, but hey!)

The lettuce have almost completely taken over the water-tank garden bed. Funny, we don't really eat a lot of lettuce. Oops!

Lastly, this Zinnia is changing colour as it's getting older. I think it's even more beautiful than the young flowers!

Until next time!

  1. My Mom used to grow zinnia's. All sizes and all colors. I just loved them. Funny, I was just thinking about them the other day.
