During this episode of the podcast, I give a Suburban Food Farm update for this season, and talk about the types of vegetables to plant during autumn in a temperate climate zone. My climate here in Melton West is Hot Zone 10, Cold Zone 4. I mention all the different types of vegetables I will be planting over the next few weeks, and what I have done to prepare the garden beds ready for them.
I also talk about how to reuse items to make a handy pea trellis, planting swedes (rutabaga) for making Kim’s Cornish pasties, and lots of Leeks for making potato and leek soup and Kim’s Anglesey Eggs. Very yummy!
I also talk about a few project that we have completed, or are planning to complete very soon. You will have to listen to find out the goss! All projects have something to do with water.
Our upcoming sustainable living workshop dates can be found at www.littlegreenworkshops.com.au. Kim and I are teaching quite a few courses from late April until the end of June in our local city of Melton and surrounds.

I realise you have a wide and varied audience so really appreciate these ‘local’ posts. As beginners to not only vegetable gardening, but also Melbournes soil (ex-West Aussies) we have found your blog advice invaluable. Thanks!

No problem Janine. I figured a while back that lots of locals use it as a planting reference, so I like to show what I grow to help out. Our soil is particularly poor (clay based) so I like to show folks how to improve it.
