Vegetables

 

Continue planting.......

Beans, beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, cucumber, kale, lettuce, leeks, peas, radish, spinach, silver beet, sweetcorn and zucchini.

Try some of the non-hearing lettuce such as Cos and LoLo Rosso, young leaves can be harvested two or three weeks after sowing. Plant up a big pot of assorted lettuce and parsley to take to the Bach!

Beetroot and carrots can be harvested quite young too.

All the vegetable plants will need good watering over the drier months.  Water early morning or late evening.  A good liquid fertiliser will give you the best crop. Try our new seaweed Yates special. Use on a dull day to prevent leaf burn.

Many plants start to bolt at this time of year caused by sudden temperature change or lack of water. Pull them up and plant something different in its place.

Tomatoes need on going care, pinch out the laterals  and water and feed on a regular basis for the best crop.  Also provide a good support and tie as they grow.  Sow another crop now to give you fruit well into autumn ...and some for relish too!!

Keep an eye out for aphids and white fly. Use a spray bottle with diluted washing up liquid or for persistent bugs use a Yates vegie gun ready to go! You will need to re-apply about every 10 days or so.
