New Cooler Season Plantings - Dec 2008

We took advantage of the very un-usual and heavy December rains and planted additional beds of carrot (red, white, purple, orange and black), chive, spring onion, radish (various colours and shapes), beetroot, pak choi, cucumber, watermelon, and cabbage. We also stuck in some lovely Madagascar Jasmine Vines in the East Fragrant Garden, currently being developed. Fingers crossed!!
