At last the veggie patch at the other side of our backyard fence have many things growing on them in this early month of April. Instead of bare patches since we finished harvesting onions and sunflower evening sun had spent their blooms. With the help of mild weather, vegetables are growing really fast. This is sweetcorn that we sowed middle of February which I hope will produce before the weather are too cold for them. Some of the sweetcorn plants have already male reproductive organ poking their head out. A bit worrying actually cause I hope pollens are not finished quickly when the female silky ear appear.
This is sweetcorn plants that were sowed by Ilhan when we were away in Melbourne (early March). We are just doing some trial whether it is possible to get crop from sweetcorn seeds sown End of Summer here in Adelaide.
Another trial sowing bush beans in End summer whether we get anything to harvest or not. The beans can be green manure if they don't produce anything which made them every gardener's bestfriend. But I think I spot some sign of flowers on some of the plants.
Lenay's veggie patch~ Daikon, snow peas and peas. She made the trellis for the snow peas and peas using evening sun sunflower stalk.
Cold season root vegetable patch with rows of parsnips, carrots and daikons. Chives grown from division planted at the front as a border and I hope they flower come spring. Thinning and weeding a task waiting to be done from this patch.
We made a potato patch today and planted potates (Kennebec, Sebago) given by Julie so we called that patch Berry Gnome Patch.
Have a nice weekend.
