Last Week of 2011

December: The Last Week of 2011

This has to be the best year for Dwarf Beans
I'm harvesting a small amount each day!

Weather:
The week started Hot, cooled down on Monday then the temperature steadily climbed back to 36C by Saturday. The New Year looks like starting off very hot with 39C predicted for the next few days! Argh!!

Propagation:
Seeds:
Early sowing of winter brassicas
Brassica oleracea
Broccoli Purple Sprouting from 4 Seasons Seeds
Cauliflower Romanesco (I usually call this one Broccoli) from The Italian Gardener
Cauliflower Violet Sicilian from Green Harvest
Kale Morton's Mix from Phoenix Seeds
Kale Tuscan Black (Cavalo Nero) from Diggers
Cabbage Ethiopian Brassica abyssinica from Seed Savers Network

Some 'top-up' seeds from earlier greens planting after the rain and heat kind of killed the first lot!!!
Lettuce Butternut
Miner's Lettuce

Cuttings:
Coreopsis

The Large Mixed and Tiny Spinning Top Gourds
are setting and showing their curious shapes!

It looks like the mystery pumpkins in Bed 6
will be Butternuts!
I don't have a lot of luck growing that variety
and here they are volunteering all by themselves!


***Happy New Year to all***
May your Food Garden
grow well in 2012!
