Growing local

The shady corner of the garden beds.

Baby mizuna and pak choy.

We just finished another bunch, and I'm going to cut another (not this one) this weekend.

Lychee in flower

The lime appears to be trying to grow past its potbound root ball since i dropped a spade through its roots.

The lemon is going crazy.

New mulch on the path - and a broccoli that is about to come out as the side shoots are now too skinny.

Central bed of our 4.2m x 4.2m vegie garden.

Fennel in a terracotta pot.

Self seeded cosmos - very drought tolerant, I don't water them at all.

Hello carrots.

Broadbeans have started.

More beetroot on the way.

Still got one beefheart tomato battling on - with lettuce and broadbeans.

The macadamia tree is like a bee metropolis - you can hear the buzzing from meters away.

Every single plant in this shot is edible.

my brussel sprouts are titchy again this year (it's actually the same plant as last year), I though it might get a head start with an established root system, and we got more cold weather this year, I won't bother next year. I'm going to pull ours out soon and cook it. My garlic is still in, still growing, I'm going to leave it be for a while until it dies back. I've interplanted with carrots and lettuce and rocket, so it's not wasted space. I'm still growing broccoli in various stages. I'm going to persevere with it until about late October - I wouldn't put more seedlings in now though probably - better to switch to chinese greens for the hot weather probably

Great photos Scarlett - thank you for sharing your productive garden :-)

Donna - I'd persevere with the broccoli if it seems to be thriving. Brussel Sprouts are marginal at best in Briz unless you're in a cold micro-climate, usually they don't produce any sprouts. The garlic - well, if it looks like it's growing and you don't need the space, let it be for a bit and see what happens.

Sounds like you got a bit of time in the garden, it is always great to see photo blogs. I still have half grown broccoli, brussel sprouts & garlic - do you think is it getting to late for these or should I persevere and see if they produce?
