This episode is a roundup of what is growing well, what isn’t, and what I am planning on planting for spring in a few weeks time on my Suburban Food Farm.
During the show I talk about the following items;
Also, a funny thing happened today when I went to harvest some winter potatoes which I talk about during the episode.
I noticed that there seemed to a cabbage missing from the patch. After getting enough spuds for dinner, I asked Kim if she picked it, as it was nearly ready to harvest. We were both surprised to find that the cabbage had been taken by persons unknown, who obviously likes cabbage more than we do 🙁
This is the only down side that I can see to growing produce in the front yard. We are so far away from it, didn’t hear the intruder stealth the cabbage away!
Not to worry, we still have six more sugarloaf cabbages, and six purple cabbages that are only a few weeks away from harvesting. We will struggle to eat that lot anyway.
Anyway, have a listen to the show and I hope you get some benefit from some of the tips I share along the way.

Sounds like a re-run of that episode in The Good Life when a passerby steals vegetables from Tom and Barbara’s front garden – do you remember that show? My children gave me the DVDs for Christmas last year. so I watched them again earlier this year.

Nice one Melindi. Yes, I remember the air rifle episode. It was hilarious! I was talking to another food gardener friend this morning about my cabbage thief, and he mentioned the Good Life episode as well.
We had a good laugh about it.
Have you tried fermenting your cabbage Gav? Sauerkraut is phenomenally good for you and can be kept without refrigeration as long as you can keep the temperatures cool. Once it warms up it can be stored in the fridge. It won’t last that long though. 🙂
Another great podcast. 🙂

Cheers Jessie. I think I will give it a go. I certainly have enough cabbages.
Thanks for listening! Looks like you are plowing through the episodes. x
Takes me a while but I do catch up on them. 🙂
