I grew some veggies last year and over summer I tried a few varieties using heirloom seeds. This season I have even more heirloom varieties to try and also to save their seed to use next year.
I thought I would post a round up at the end of each month (or beginning of the following month if I am really slack) to summarise what I have been up to in the garden as well as a brief list of things to do over the next month.

Corn Salad, Radicchio pallla rosa early, Mesclun Lettuce mix, Beetroot Melbourne early slowbolt, Cauliflower phenomenal early, Cabbage red dutch, Valerian.
Dwarf Sweet Peas, Purple Basil, Thai Basil,
Capsicum, Cherry Tomatoes, Chamomile, Sweet Basil,
Lettuce x 2 (I knew I should have marked what types they were when I planted them – all I know is that they are yummy!), Agapanthus
These are my current seeds I am saving. I chopped the heads off at the end of flowering and I am letting them dry in the garage. Hopefully, they will be successful.
- Plant out lavender, chervil, pennyroyal, and beetroot seedlings.
- Remove the last of the Lazy housewife beans from the trellis and compost soil to prepare for sweet peas.
- Continue preparing the rest of the garden beds for the winter crop.
- Look at seed saving for chamomile, borage and tomato.
- Sow next batch of winter veg.
- Figure out when and how to harvest the Rosella (pictured below)
