About Me

This blog started when we lived in a Carwoola, a rural residential area close to Canberra. We are moving to a split lifestyle with an apartment in Civic in Canberra and a larger house at Mallacoota in Victoria. Posts about the new residences will start when we complete the moves.

Vegetables a-gogo

We picked (and ate) our first tomato on 2 January. The first zucchini was picked on 3 January.

The weather on ABC TV here is given by Mark Carmody, who also runs a gardening show. One of his catch phrases was that garlic should be planted on the shortest day and picked on the longest day. We were a few days late in the picking, but estimate we have got enough to last us through 2009: wha makes this particularly fine is that one planting of this lot was using cloves from our harvest in 2007!

We also dug up a lot of brown onions (left) and shallots (right).
