    Another good harvest

    With another 13 to come. Good thing my little grandson has developed a taste for them. We've given a lot away to neighbor's as well which is a good thing given these weird times.

    Returning home soon...

    Folks I'm returning home at the end of April. My vege garden has been slightly neglected while I've been away. What can I plant in May in a sub-tropical area (Laidley)? Would it be to late for garlic?

    A wander through the patch

    Got some open pollinated seed and planted them out. Pumping the water into them but just can't keep up. Cobs are looking pretty ordinary. Being on tank water I just can't justify the water I use for them. I may try again in a wicking bed but won't be doing them in a raised bed again.
