A little closer to home

My raised garden bed at home, with super soil, is now into its second planting. The first planting was a mixed success, with the beetroot and butternut pumpkin successful but the tomato and capsicum devastated by a grub.

For the winter crop we have cabbage, broccoli and onion. They are going well as you can see after the first month or so. If you look closely on the left hand side of the photo you can see some leftover seedlings planted into the uncultivated ground. Alive but a pale shadow of the crop growing in the composted soil. Our little control group.


Lots of rain in the last month which has also helped.
