Home grown is always nicer and no chemicals!

Now that the weather has started to warm up, will you plant any herbs or vegetables in your garden, or in pots?

I certainly will.

I have great seeds for several tomatoes, lebanese capsicum, beetroot, parsley, raddish and some coriander seeds.

I love growing my own vegetables and herbs as I hate the thought of all the chemicals that are put on the ones in shops.

Sometimes the shop ones do taste nicer than organic and they often look better however I find it very satisfying to go outside to pick what I need for dinner.

It's getting colder here!
I have a sprouter so that I can grow fresh "greens" all year round, it's very satisfying in the winter months to have fresh sprouts with a meal, like a little taste of spring when it seems furthest away....
It's autumn for us now, but we did grow lots of fruit and veg. We've got dozens of jars of chutney and jam.
yum, Bryony!

As I live in the warm tropics of Townsville in North Qld,I have herbs growing absolutely all year through,and the same with tomatoes,passionfruit, sweet potatoes,capsicums etc.... The convenience and the thrill of being able to go and pluck what I want,when I want it defies description!!! I have also grown various lettuce varieties in big tubs and these are such a treat.I have a wonderful Bay tree which I now have managed to grow cuttings from,so I have given them as gifts to others who love to cook using fresh Bay Leaves! I cannot imagine not growing such fabulous ingredients to use in my meals. And I really enjoy sharing them with my friends.Pity that so many of them live so far away!!
Only flowers this year for me, did some today and had a lovely time in the sunshine.
We have heeps of wild Rabbits, so they eat a lot of the veg, if planted :(
Definately. I already have tomatoes seeding growing
I started planting a few weeks ago. One of the benefits of living in the subtropics.
I wish I could but I don't have a garden

I live in Cairns so I had my winter "dry season" crops almost at an end - I've had tomatoes, basil, silver beet, spring opinions lettuces all growing for the last few months. I'm hoping to plant up some sweet potatoes, spinach, rocket, rockmelon, corn and a few other "bits and pieces" for the wet season.
Yes. Fenugreek and coriander on my mind, this time around. We live in a rented place in the city; do not have a garden. So I don't have the liberty or facility to do as much gardening as I would have loved to do.
I have planted some vegie and herb seedlings and also some seeds. Spring is a great time to plant. I swap some of the results over the side fence with my neighbour who is a keen gardener. One of my favourite herbs is lemon basil. It adds a lift to tomato dishes and prawn risotto. Home grown vegies have a better flavour than shop bought ones.
I have not heard of lemon basil -what State did you buy it?
by Finy
Lemon basil is available in South Australia. I bought a packet of seeds a few years ago and now grow new plants from seed I have saved.
We just planted heaps of basil, tomatoes, beetroot, rocket, capsicums - just hope the possums stay away!

Always have something growin in our garden beds but more so in the warmer months as I detest paying top dollar for tomatoes and lettuce in particular. I also supply my daughter's families with veggies
It's a stinking hot summer now, Feb 2017, I have 3 tiny pots of herbs with mesh around them, & there sitting on a seat on our boat, at the top of our driveway! If they were anywhere else, the'd be eaten by the possums. I'm trying to save a small tomato that's ripening up now, from the birds! The tomato plant is sitting on the top of something else that's high up, (waiting for a throw out!) on the other side of the top of the driveway. (You can't see them from the road, as we have a LOT of trees, & 1 wouldn't even know the boat was up there!!!)
