I am currently growing tomatoes, lebanese cucumbers, raddish, capsicum, spinach, parsley and potato has popped up from last year!
I have not grown fruit.
I have a wonderful set up thank to my horticulturalist son who I flew down from darwin to set it all up -I do not have to bend to pick things, and I really enjoy growing these things even though I have had little luck due to caterpillars and snails up until now.
Yes, we grow spinach, cucumbers, capsicum, raddish, parsley, basil (though that is dead now) potatoes, beans, lettuce, rocket, tomatoes, lemons, oranges, madarins and grapefruit. It can be a lot of work, but I think it is worth it.
I can't take all the credit, haha. My husband's grandfather does a lot too. Though I imagine my husband and I will be doing a lot more given that his pop is going into hospital again soon. Yes, we are in NSW. At the moment, nothing is growing but the spinach, rocket and lettuce. I can't wait for the warmer months.
We have some citrus trees- one tree is full of lemons right now. Also, tomatoes, Asian greens, snow peas, passionfruit, corn, herbs - all pretty easy to grow. I find carrots hard to grow for some reason?
Yes indeed!!! In my childhood we had all the seasonam ones fron sweet corn, tomatoes and lettuce.to potatoes,strawberries,raspberries and bean!!! Too many more to mention were always in the garden during the year! Up here in Nth Qld I always have tomatoes growing,as well as herbs galore! The passionfruit also fruit all year:YUMMM!!!! This climate also allows me to grow limes,lemoons,and other citrus,sweet potato,and many rare troipical fruits as well. I am definitely Blessed beyond any hope and all expectation.
Over the years I have grown several types of vegies and herbs. I find it satisfying and it gives you something to talk about with other gardeners. At the moment I am picking silverbeet, rocket, thyme, mint, rosemary and spinach. I have recently planted tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, parsley, dill, zucchinis and lettuce. I plan to plant some more vegies and basil and lemon basil. Last year my son gave me a lemon tree and I am looking forward to picking lemons in the future.
