Once Upon a Wintery Day

I'm still at work, and it's dark and raining outside, so at the end of a long day, what better to do than keep sitting here with my feet on the heater and poking about among old photos of the veggie patch from this season some years back?

One of the great things about living in Adelaide's Mediterranean climate is that we can grow stuff right through winter, especially all the brassicas like cabbage, broccoli, the Chinese stir-fry vegetables like Pak Choy and Wong Bok, kohl-rabi plus cool-weather greens such as spinach and silver beet. Peas replace beans as climbers.

So here's a few photos from June 2004 of just such greens, planted in compost-covered beds, along with rainbow chards and kohl-rabi.

Time to get wet walking home...
