"Hey, congratulations on your crop!! Don't know the answer to the question but will be interested in other's replies. When did you plant your potatoes? In the ground, in buckets, tyres????? Tell me more."
"I planted rock melon and water melon seeds in my plastic hot house. I've now planted the seedlings in tyres outside and they seem to be growing. (I've planted a few more seeds as back-ups in the hot house just in case!) Not sure of my…"
"I live at the beach too and my raised gardens are fantastic! Sand underneath, then weedmat, hay, sprinkle of blood and bone, pea straw, compost. See my previous posting of me showing off my cauli. Tomorrow I'm going to harvest my brocolli.…"
3 raised beds that my husband made and another area as well. I also have a hot house and am experimenting with that. When I am certain that the frosts are over I have tomato, cucumber, zucchini, basil, capsicum, lettuce, marigold seedling to plant out. I'll leave some in big pots in the hot house and compare how they grow. I've planted beetroot and radish seeds in the garden. I've nearly finished the broccoli, cabbage, cauli and silver beet that I planted ages ago. All experimenting, all new, all good!!

Hi lynne, Different seeds bring different nutriance to the soil, so what you plant this year will be better to plant something else next year, and you could swhoop places next year eg: lupins in front yard, mustard in back this year, mustard in front yard, lupins in back next year then you would have both avalible for your compost heap for two years! so many options, gardens are never boring. theres more ideas than time and space to do them.
Hi Lynne, as we are coming in to coolier weather, now is the time to plant seeds for green manure, Lupins Mustard and there are some others, this will inprove the soil for the summer and it will fill the gaps that will form as plants die back.
