After 8 glorious days on the NSW coast we returned to a very wet Adelaide. To be honest, not much had changed in the garden. The broccoli ‘trees’ at the Happy Patch have continued to grow without showing any signs of producing any actual broccoli. We have decided to give them a few more weeks before they get the chop.
The radishes have continued to yield which has been terrific. We even took a bunch away with us as a gift for our dear friends in Narooma; they made an excellent salad.
The spring onions are also growing well and we have begun harvesting them. Rather than pulling them straight up we have been cutting them off at the base as an experiment to see if they continue to grow.
We also have a few baby cauliflowers just showing their heads.
At home we are continuing to harvest pak choy, spinach, silverbeet, yukina, kale, rainbow chard and coriander.
The front bed containing the late plantings of spinach, silverbeet, rainbow chard and cabbages is doing very well. Not too many slugs or snails have found it yet which is great.
However, my idea of planting white pansies to deter cabbage moths has been foiled. We seem to have apricot and red as well as white!
Sadly, last night something (a rat? a possum?) seemed to take a liking to the last lot of cauliflowers we planted; they are all but decimated!
If anyone has an idea what may have done this and how to deter it please let us know.
