Growing local

A quick overview of where the dirt is at...

Spuds a plenty in this mix.Staggered harvest.  Enough carrots to feed a horse.Wonderful beetroots. Coriander. Parsley. Tomatoes hither and yon. Zucchini of sorts. Warrigal Greens creeping about...along with Jap pumpkins.

A tipping point no less. After all this time fussing about the overall, I can now can get down and dirty with target vegetables on the basis of 'I know what I like'/'I know what i can grow.'

But --would you believe it! -- I canna grow radishes.

Each year in every way I'm getting better and better ...

Interesting how you can't grow radishes where that is one of the staples in my garden. My growing window for coriander (and nasturtiums) is close to the end - they are going to seed rapidly in my garden now. Parsley is thriving though (under cover). It just reinforces how every garden is different even when they are in the same macro climate.

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.)

GrowVetiver 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.
