I use so much organic celery for juicing that I have started growing it myself. Started in the greenhouse, I can get some to usable size about July but they are frozen by Nov. Would love to extend that season further. I am trying ginger this coming year in the greenhouse, garlic didn't work well --too much shade. Apples are so plentiful but people are demanding the organic ones & they go really fast. I pick some from the neighbors. So the main thing is carrots--growing better carrots & kale in such a small space. I am expanding. I would like to have an organic farm as there is hardly any corn in the stores. Organic canned corn shelf is empty every time I go there for months now! It's been a beautiful weather year for everything so the demand is simply stripping the supply. Really, this IS the business to be in so many have left farming. I love the videos of Polyface farm. Joel Salatin is on top of the wave. It won't hit the beach anytime soon. . .
Keryn, Nice looking garden.
Yes, I can grow it all year, it will run up to seed and will have to plant more. The only problem is that my husband hates it and I love it stir fries and salads.
Your celery, do you keep it going year round?
The frame is to put netting over them, but not yet when they start to ripen.
Oh yeah, I forgot the strawberry patch, flowering at the moment and a few young ones just starting to grow. not many make it inside, My husband and the black birds eat most of them. Husband is OK, blackbirds NO.
Also a few Orchids just divided, and flower cutting, everything is finding its way under here. Behind it all is the junk area. The bin with the green lid is our green waste bin picked up by the shire every fortnight. We also have a yellow lid one for recycled plastics mostly and red lid one for normal garbage. Our very baby trailer also goes to the tip often.
Cos lettuce thats running up to flower and I need to pull out. I,m waiting for new seeds to grow before I remove it. Its still eatable. Very young radish seedling and some carrots. Also my tomatoes seedling are just starting to come up in this bed too.
Snow peas just starting to climb, young Chinese cabbage and pak choy and broccoli, I also planted basil seeds that havent come up !!!!
Silverbeet, celery, leaks and weeds, all under the shade house. I need to get out here and do something.
