Cucumber is one thing I wish I could grow here all year round.

No worries with the pic info :) Took me ages to figure it all out myself.

Yes Lissa, find I can grow most things in the winter, perhaps it is just being 500km north of Brisbane. some years we get a light frost then everything suffers, but that is not usually till July or August & I can get my harvest before then as you can see. Started really early this year because I had a garden club visit early May. Early carrots were sucessful, but the beetroot alonside failed, those in the other pic are my second planting, again the beetroot are not as sucessful as carrots.

Thanks for the advice renaming pics & adding details, I did not know how to do that.
