Looking in my yates garden guide it seems that May is not really time for planting too much, gardenate however looks a little bit more positive with a much longer list.I think looking at the lists and my collection of seeds I am going to try to get the following going before the end of MayGarlic (have bulbs, just need to get them in the ground)BroccoliBroad beansFlorence FennelKohl Rabionions (possibly – I have seed which is a couple of years old and I don’t know if it will germinate, also not sure if it is too late to sow seed, guess there is only one way to find out)What are you planting now? and what tricks do you have if it isnt the ideal time to plant them?May 18, 2015 at 3:20 am #537906
Everything is late here so I’m still picking tomatoes! :/ hubby planted some kale seed yesterday and I’m heading out now to plant some garlic. I’ll be planting onion seeds, peas, broad beans and brassica seedlings soon. Our shade cloth veggie garden does help to create a sheltered microclimate when it’s as cold as it is now.May 18, 2015 at 3:47 am #537907
Good to know that I haven’t missed the boat on a few of those things (or at least if I have I’m not alone lol)I bet it’s a lot colder up at your place than where we are, we only just turned on the heater this last week (and only for a couple of nights).May 18, 2015 at 11:47 pm #537908
Lots of wombok and beans and snow peasMay 19, 2015 at 10:28 pm #537909
We had 15mm of rain yesterday so will try sewing broad beans,peas carrots,parsnip and swede seeds. Might even plant out the cauli’s and broccoli if time permits.May 20, 2015 at 8:08 am #537910

I put in a few more peas and carrots, plus a stack of calendulas.June 26, 2015 at 12:28 am #537913
How do you plant carrots? any tips?June 26, 2015 at 2:42 am #537914
I mix the seeds with some fine sand in a jar,(with holes in the lid) and then sprinkle then in lows in the veggie bed.June 28, 2015 at 12:26 am #537915
I just put mine on seed raising mix, the trick is to keep them moist, cover with paper or old hessian and keep moist till they show themselves, then take cover offJune 28, 2015 at 5:32 am #537916
I’ve planted some tatsoi and mixed asian vegies in seedling trays should be ready to plant out by the time I make some more cages, I’ve got the bed all ready it had some parsley and calendulas in it but the possum made a meal of them so cages are the way to go…. peas I planted are all gone too 🙁June 28, 2015 at 7:27 am #537917
I have 60 garlic cloves to plant, not sure where I’m going to put them??
I plant by the moon, so I have to wait a couple of weeksJune 28, 2015 at 9:54 pm #537918
My garlic did very well last year, only problem is …we don’t eat it.June 29, 2015 at 5:20 am #537919
oh but it’s very good for you, mind you I know some people cannot tolerate it, but it is very good for you
