The Challenge is to grow enough salad greens to provide a tasty salad each week for 52 weeks.
First up as it was the end of our Summer and most salad crops had gone to seed i collected different varieties of lettuce seeds sorted them bagged and labelled them.
Three types were sow directly into beds, Red lettuce,Rossa Di Trento and Golden lettuce.
Summer herbs i gave a trim and lifted and divided bunching onions and replanted them into rows.
Other seeds planted (2/3/2012) Beetroot Forono, Rocket, Spinach,Coriander,
Lettuce Little Gem and Carrots.
I also purchased a punnet of mixed lettuce.
I planted some of the lettuce seedlings and potted
up onions and parsley to have at the back door for easy picking.(handy when its been raining)
Most of the seeds have germinated due to Autumn rain and bright sunny days.
Looks like i will have plenty of Red lettuce and extras to give away.
Sowings are the first for my new Veggie Plot so I'm extra pleased as the soil is a little heavy with lots of little stones.
Recycled fence panels are to keep out the kangaroos, they don't like onions or rosemary so i planted them outside along the fence.
A few old bales of hay provide a wind break.
Lets hoping we will be soon picking our greens and tossing a salad!!!!!
