It is autumn here in South Eastern Australia and time to start preparing for your winter planting. I talk about all the beds I have to prepare, what I am going to plant, basic crop rotation, and some tips about composting and worm castings and how to keep snails/slugs and earwigs off your newly planted seedlings. Who am I kidding, the show is full of organic gardening tips!
Join me in a chat about preparing for winter planting.

Trust Jess to give you something weird. Does that mean your pumpkin vines have whithered? Jess says i have to wait. The vines have filled the raised beds and have fallen down to the ground and travelled over the paths and have started making their way over the fence and into the neighbours. Not too much fruit but they are certainly healthy plants.
I just found out that earwigs are good for controlling woolly aphids amongst other things. Another one of those interesting relationships that can be put to good use in the garden.
