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.
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.
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)
Lots of wombok and beans and snow peas
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.
Planted a black Russian side shoot given to me.
Leeks have sprouted so has the sour sop seeds and the poblanos
I have broadbeans, all the brassicas, peas, carrots, onions, turnips
all have sprouted and looking good
I put in a few more peas and carrots, plus a stack of calendulas.
How do you plant carrots? any tips?
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.
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 off
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 🙁
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 weeks
My garlic did very well last year, only problem is …we don’t eat it.
oh but it’s very good for you, mind you I know some people cannot tolerate it, but it is very good for you
seed potatoes are next on the list, along with asparagus
got my green harvest catalogue today
