@gabi.fisio011, welcome to the group. What are you going to plant right now?
Oh, I'm planting some winter crops, brassicas, carrots, leek, onions... I love onions! Cassava is a staple crop here, we're putting some on the ground for next year too... peas, beans, lettuce... I'll have to buy some flower seeds, I haven't planted any this year, they're important... And you?! I'm really looking forward to my ginger and tumeric harvest! I forgot I planted them last winter and they grew a little neglected... let's see what happened underground...

Mary, I see you're from Adelaide, how is it to garden and live in "the driest city of Australia"?
I'm looking for information on Australian towns that would be more receptive to immigration (and Adelaide is!), and I would be glad to get as much info about the city as I possibly can!
Thank you so much in advance!

They grow better up north here in Australia. One day, I will get some cane to try in Adelaide. You’re growing what we’re growing right now except for the beans, it’s too cold. Snow peas are a favourite, I can’t wait to snack on them.

I have some late garlic to put in this week. It’s late but better late than never. After watching Mark and Rob Bob’s ginger and turmeric harvest over the years, I can say there’s hope for me yet. My first attempt was pitiful LOL. I remember them growing like weeds as a kid. It can’t be that hard, right? LOL

It’s not as bad as it sounds. We’re not living on barren land LOL. You can grow everything you can grow in Adelaide including some sub-tropical plants and fruit. We have your usual wet, cold and hot weather here. Too much rain, we whine about it, and, the same when it gets too hot. The neat thing about my area, it’s not as crowded as the big smoke (eastern areas).
