What Veggies am I Growing Now in Mullumbimby NSW Australia

It's only three weeks away from Spring, but as we have passed the shortest day the plants are already receiving a little more extended light.

This means a new spring flush in fruit trees in the sub tropical regions like Mullumbimby and far north NSW.

With a predicted dry Spring ahead with warmer days than the last few years I have mixed emotions. Will it be a great grow season?

Yes, and no.

Why do I say this? Well, if you have plenty of water then yes it will be great.

But for those who rely on rain water alone, it may be a little trickier.

That's why it's so important to start adding lots of compost early to garden beds and covering with mulch.

My front garden which has lots of pots a raised bed and a bale garden.

Everything is growing in my homemade compost.

Yes, my potting mix also has compost in it and the plants love it.

Below is a list of some of the main edibles that I am currently growing in my Mullumbimby home organic garden.

Dwarf Cherry Tomatoes - 5 different varieties

Chili - Birds eye

Eggplant - two varieties

Cos Lettuce

Pok Choy

Strawberries - June Bearing

Cape Horn Gooseberry

Herbs - Lemon Basil, Sweet Basil, Curly/ Flatleaf parsley, Oregano, Thyme, Common Mint, Sage and Rosemary.

The garden is protected from the cool south winds and receives sun for over six hours per day so it's a great space for growing fruiting plants during the cooler months of the year.

This summer is my first time growing in the front yard so it's still to early to say how well it will perform.

Stay updated via this blog as I write more about my edible gardening adventure in my front and back yard.

Happy Gardening & God Bless
