Our poppies, cauliflowers, broad beans, rocket, pansy’s and my favourite flower cosmos. And the bees are loving it. There has been lots of parsnips which funnily enough some folks don’t like, but roasted they are DELICIOUS, radishes and the broccoli is just starting to form a head.
We purchased our seedlings from the wholesale nursery, Scotsburn, which is in Keysborough. I went to Burnley with Peter the owner and he very kindly donated some extra seedlings such as onions (I have never grown onions) and so far they are doing okay. I have been adding compost to them every couple of weeks.
We have got a resident rascally bored crow (see picture) and she/he was quite destructive snapping off the broad beans, breaking off the tops of the garlic and then screeching at us when we were in the vegie garden. Luckily she/he left the cauliflower alone and we are beginning to harvest them. I do like crows though, I love the way they are so cheeky!
Another visitor of the feathered variety are the Lorikeets that visit from time to time. They arrive in a flock, screeching and screaming at each other, hang out in the River Red Gum and the Peppercorn trees, then zoom off somewhere else
