It’s perfect autumn gardening weather – lots of nice heavy rain followed by hours of glorious sunshine. I haven’t filled up the wicking beds for four weeks, but after testing today the reservoirs are full.
We’re harvesting lettuce, spring onions, radishes, coriander, parsley and silverbeet by the armful. We eat so many more veggies already, just having the convenience of greens out the back door.
The garlic has all sprouted, and the broad beans have just started to flower. It’s a bit hard to tell how effective the mini worm farms are at this stage, but the worms are looking fat and healthy and they’re munching through all our kitchen scraps, so I’m taking that as a good sign!
