Things to do in the garden, Harvest bags, and quick and easy chutney recipe.
Autumn has arrived! The leaves on deciduous trees are turning and ready to fall, and the nights are cool. In this newsletter we have a couple of ideas for the garden, details about our Harvest Bags and a yummy recipe highlighting the fresh flavours of parsley and mint.
In the garden...
We haven't seen the last of the summer season vegetables; with many gardens, including ours, continuing to provide an abundance of tomatoes, capsicums, cucumbers and eggplants. It's the perfect time to harvest and preserve to extend your enjoyment of delicious summer vegetables.
March is the perfect time to transplant cabbage seedlings for a late winter harvest, just remember they love to be planted in firm structured soil, if your pH is low add a little lime. Many vegetables planted at this time of the year have an extended growing period, we make the most of this time and work on our compost heaps. We have a number of compost heaps in frames which require regular watering, and turning two or three times to ensure all the material breaks down before we dig it back into the garden beds.
We have such an amazing group of customers who support us each week by purchasing our Harvest Bags. We wander through the market garden patch early in the week assessing what will be ready to harvest and available for each week's Harvest bags. In this week's $40 Harvest bags we have a delicious selection of vegetables, perfect for the Easter Holidays.
