Some good winters veggies to grow

Postby milt » Mon Nov 28, 2005 11:26 am

What can i grow in my veggie patch here in Melbourne once I have pulled my tomatoes and cucumbers out. What do I have to do to prepare for a winter crop? I regurarly put in 4-5 bags of cow manure in preparation for summer do I need to add in a bit more for winter?

I will be growing garlic as well so any tips would be kindly appreciated.

Wow Milt! You're really getting into it - that's great.

As to winter vegies, depends on what you like. Broadbeans, peas, snow peas, spinach, silver beet (though that seems to go all year), things like caulis, leeks, turnips - some would probably have to go in during autumn (I've always been useless with my timing but at least get a few things to eat).

No doubt closer to the time we'll all be talking about it here... :lol:
