Nice pics Elaine, both these and the earlier ones.

Thanks for all the pics and report Elaine :)

One of those self sown lettuces has come up at the entrance to my garage out the front. I crop from it when I come home!

All the garden is looking great Lissa. Always good to see what everyone else is growing, you will have a lovely variety for winter I'm sure.

Love your garden Lissa. It always staggers me how so much grows so well and looks so tidy. I love your methods.

Thanks Susanne :) Still trying to define those methods lol. Keep it simple I say.

Wish I could have made it - your garden is still looking amazing and an inspiration.  Plus this wonderful rain has made me very eager to get the winter crop underway.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
