September in the Vegetable Garden

Well supposedly this is the first day of spring, and getting ready for what to sow this spring. Here is a list of what can be sown in Geelong, in September, although bear in mend that we have had rather a cold year, so check the temperature for certain things.

· Artichoke, Basil, Beetroot, Broad Beans, Broccoli, Cabbage, Capsicum, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Chinese Cabbage, Coriander, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, S.Onions, Peas, Potatoes, Pumpkin, Rocket, Swedes, Tomato, Turnip, Zucchini

Plan to grow a lot of pumpkins this year, down my shared access laneway. So will be interesting to see how that goes. Today I will check my seeds to see if I have everything, would like to grow a few types of Basil, Royston-Petrie has quite a few varieties. Have sown 20 varieties of Tomatoes at work, obviously I won’t be growing them all at home. I am going to attempt grafting tomatoes and eggplant soon. With the eggplant I will try two rootstocks, Pepinos, Solanum muricitum and Kangaroo Apple, Solanum lancilatum, this will be done at work so I will document the progress.
Everything in the garden is looking great, as we have had a lot of rain this month, nothing really interesting things just ticking over nicely.
