Perennial vegetables in cold climates

That Kale looks fabulous Cesar - i'm sure it would grow in the Queenstown region and survive the frosts - any ideas about what else might work this far south?See More

"Yes, the D'aubenton Kale can grow in the Queenstown region as it is very hardy. Any of the napus kales that were bred by Tim Peters would do well down there as they were selectively bred to withstand up to -20 while the oleracea kales selected…"

"I had one of those 4 tier mini hot house for about 6 years and sprouted most of my plants in it - it worked really well and didn't take up much room at all  - I had it sitting next to the shed wall. It is now shelving in the new one.…"

Hanna commented on CesarZ's group Perennial Vegetables
"Would anyone like some yacon tubers? Not essential, but quite fun to grow and seemingly almost as vigorous as Jerusalem artichokes. I'll have to shift them very soon, but can't bring myself to throw the surplus away. I doubt that…"

"Hi Lynn. What you could do, as I have done, is purchase a 3 or 4 tier mini-hothouse from Bunnings or Mitre 10. While nowhere near as large as Rex's (and therefore taking up less space), it's still ideal for starting seeds. I have some…"

Lynn commented on Denise's group What To Do Today?
"Oh Rex, you lucky thing! I don't seem to have enough room here for one of those, sadly - and I'd love to be getting seeds in now! It's been a tough winter for me and the garden has suffered some, though I did grow Italian broccoli,…"

Winter diary

Have dug in the sheet composted coffee grounds and grass clippings. I think it makes a better veggie bed combining the organic matter with the topsoil although no-dig purists may disapprove. Have planted out a lot of self sown corn and lettuce seedlings and mixed the corn with broad beans. Need to add squash for the Mexican triumvirate. The whole site is covered in weeds now and we are finally getting some mandarins, lemons, limes and oranges.

Gluten free

Junko has researched and perfected a number of gluten free bread and cake recipes to get me off the wheat energy roller coaster. I don't fall asleep in the afternoon now and my bakery bill has dropped. She's using mixtures of spelt, rye, rice, corn and potato flours. Some taro and a couple of bananas have survived where I chucked them in the corner soak hole where the run-off ends up. Comfrey is everywhere. I miss my chickens - if anyone in Akl needs to get rid of a couple of layers please…
