A Time to Sow

Today I was back in the garden sowing seeds. The bulk of the clean-up is done and I want to get food back in the ground.

In the bed on the left I sowed a row of Brussels sprouts, a row of silverbeet then 2 rows with mixed radishes (mainly sparkler but with a few long scarlet in the front, right) and carrots.

My seed trays are loaded with:
Top: rocket (back), red onion (front)
Middle: Cos lettuce (left), iceberg lettuce (right)
bottom: rosemary cuttings, iresene cuttings, basil

Last but not least, 3 pots with: nasturtiums (from seeds harvested in October), cauliflower (green square pot), cabbage (black round pot).

  1. oh you have been busy. I am planning on planting out some carrots and root crops this weekend. I thought I might try planting with the moon, and it says to plant root crops until the 14th.

    • I have spent a lot of time and effort in following the moon calendar for planting (even running a couple of simple trials) and found it makes no difference. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t, just that I couldn’t ever see the diff in my garden. Let me know if you find things go better with the moon.
