At the moment I'm still harvesting Kale, and now silverbeet, lettuce, asian vegetables and broccoli. And we're eating our way through the summer's potato harvest and the pumpkin harvest. At the end of my bed, the yellow, orange, gold looking plants are asparagus dying down for winter (rather slowly I might add - still that warm Autumn we had). And if you look closely you might notice a fellow community gardener going about some secret soil business. My new neighbour.
Getting ready for spring are: pretty little sweet peas, snow peas, and broad beans.
It has been a rainy week - thank goodness - so I've not been in the garden as much as I'd like but I took these photos before the grey, wet days arrived. No complaints though. I know it's flooding in Australia (up north in NSW), and flooding in England and parts of North America sound very wet but here in ACT, I've no complaints about the rain. I think so far for this month we're still only just on track for an average month.
I am going to need to sort those strawberries out at the end of the bed. They will need cutting back, mulching with pine needles (my contribution to an acid soil), and covering with straw. I should also pot up the runners for other gardeners. All tasks to do.
Isn't the light lovely through the peas and kale? Rich fields of glowing green. Yummmm.
