She must be actually working this arvo :woohoo:May 29, 2011 at 9:13 pm #482242
Lynnie, the sweet potatoes themselves didn’t take up much room, but the vines do wander up to (possibly over) one metre each way, but you can eat the leaves like spinach apparently, so it’s not totally wasted space. I planted a rockmelon about 50cm away, so both vines had a nice mingle.
Lizzie and Boonah, I use garden mulch/ woodchips between the beds, or the paths become a boggy mess with the winter rain. I’ll probably use stones when I border the garden properly.

Also while pulling out docks, I saw this little fella hiding on the leaf stem. I wonder what he’s doing still out and about when its cold. Is this a ladybug that eats aphids? or another type? :shrug:
Foz, veg gdn looks great, again! It’s a good ladybug, the 26 & 28 spotted lady bugs eat foliage so they are the ones you don’t want. I un earthed a whole lot of beneficial ladybugs when harvesting some pumpkins and put them in my insect habitat area to hopefully hang around until next spring. Time will tell.May 29, 2011 at 11:42 pm #482244

Lots of people get pleasure from their kitchen garden whether it is a small urban garden or a large lawn garden and it’s easy to spruce up the look of your outdoors space with a few simple ideas.June 13, 2011 at 2:10 am #482246
Thanks Matthew! I love spending time in my garden! 🙂June 29, 2011 at 5:24 pm #482247June 29, 2011 at 6:00 pm #482248HummerKeymaster
Oh yum Fozz.. 🙂June 29, 2011 at 6:28 pm #482249lynnieMember
that’d make a lovely cauli soup 🙂June 29, 2011 at 6:33 pm #482250BobbeeMember
Depends how many more you have at that stage Fozzle. And how many veg you have in the crisper ready to eat. Pick when you want is my maxim. :tup:
Bobbs :hug: :hug:June 29, 2011 at 6:56 pm #482251
Ooooo Lynnie!! What about cauliflour PIE?! Seriously though… soup sounds great!! Mmmm!!!
Bobbee, I’ve got half a cauli in the fridge, so maybe when that runs out! Can’t wait!!! Unfortunately this is the only one that survived the slugs of this bunch, I’ve struggled a bit with the brassicas. I’ve got mini caulis growing away as well, but they’re a way off yet! From Mr Fozzle! 🙂June 29, 2011 at 7:00 pm #482252
:tup: Nice Foz, hope mine get to that stage. You can always freeze cauli dont forget. Have you ever tried cauli, crumbed and deep fried, now thats not to bad at all.June 29, 2011 at 7:24 pm #482253Judi BKeymaster
Looking really good :tup:June 29, 2011 at 7:50 pm #482254dianneParticipant

Yum cauliflower soup or cauli the way mum used to do it steamed and covered with cheese suace. Lucky you mine are no where near that although I did notice the brocolli are starting to get heads.
