Autumn and Winter Veggie Planning

As we tip into August, the frantic planting and sowing returns. Today I planted out 94 leeks into the garden. I’ve usually had near 100% success with leeks, including getting several to near-perennialise by harvesting and leaving the roots in the ground. I’m hoping for the same here in my new garden but cautious with my expectations since I’ve never grown them in woodchip.

I also planted out 6 spinach beet and a chard to provide some leaves into the winter. This week I’ll be sowing everything possible for an outdoor autumn harvest and gathering what’s needed for overwintering plantings. Our greenhouse is still not assembled and the site is still up for debate, though I am certain it cannot be near the playing field, so unfortunately we’ll be limited again this winter.
