I will miss my vege patch!
I salvaged the important things (strawberries) in buckets and containers and bought them with us. There's no vege patch as such here but I am planning planting winter veges in amongst the other plants anyway.
I am rather proud of my beginner efforts. Very much a mixed bag with some great successes and some other dismal failures. I was aiming to eat *something* from the garden every day and I didn't too badly. I still have a bit to learn about rotation and timing of crops
Notes to self
Cos lettuces grow anywhere. Hearted lettuces turn to slimy goo.
Eat the rocket quickly before it goes to seed
Don't transplant your coriander else it sulks and bolts
One zuchhini plant produces LOTS, two or 3 next year would be great.
Cucumbers went in too late.
The capsicum produced teeny fruit but they tasted 'real'
Peas are good for snacking while weeding
Spinach - one crop did well, the other didn't. Not sure what the secret was there.
I can grow herbs very well. Must remember to use them more often.
Strawberries feed the hungry gardener (and her little helpers). 10 plants per person is my aim for next year.
Brocolli - definitely again.
Broans beans not so sure.
Normal beans - need taller stakes than you anticipate but produce more than expected too! Very good.
Tomatoes were fine in plastic buckets. Plant more than 6 next year and have a go at chutney.
I had to leave the pumpkins behind
When we moved in it was empty.
Aug08 and Feb09
My winter vege seedlings are going in the ground tomorrow!
