Planted carrot, cauliflower and strawberry seedlings today. Much cooler, with some much welcome rain.

Still quite warm here in SW Qld but nights are starting to cool off. Planted out some radish (sparkler and scarlet globe) and a heap of snow peas (Oregon giant and some of my F1 crosses).

I've got over 100 peat pots of snowpea crosses to go in (part of my red snowpea project), so tomatoes are getting pulled, before the little peas get horribly entangled in their pots - again.

Still a bit hot here to plant out my seedlings in trays but I have been sowing root crop seeds which will germinate when the weather cools and we get a bit of rain.

Roland, I think Troppo is working on some naked seeded breeding projects.

Currently working on a spag squash project looking at better flavour/higher nutrient flesh. However Shmak_1 was going to look at developing a hulless spag squash that we would then combine to create a hulless spag squash with great tasting flesh. He may have some hulless varieties to offer?

With a couple of cool and showery days at long last I have been able to get out a few trays of brassicas as well as alpine strawberries and asparagus that have been sitting around. Hopefully the summer is about to end and I can quickly get in more brassicas while the soil and weather is warm.

Things for winter, seedlings broccoli, cauliflower, coriander, dill, a couple kinds of lettuce!

Seeds; snow & sugarsnap peas, radishes, silverbeet, beetroot, kale, mild mesclun mix & French lettuce. And crazily some nasturtiums, why did I think they'd survive frost & cold.

Planted some more peas and snowpeas after the first lot got black dots on the leaves from too much rain as they sprouted. Also sowed more broccoli, carrots, beetroot, cauli's and silverbeet.
Cabbage moths are quite prevalent at the moment.

Sowed some kohl rabi, and second crops of turnips and cauliflowers.
Peas and snowpeas popping up from second sowing after the rain-related damage to the first seedlings.

planted out 5 batches of broad beans before work last thursday.
cambridge scarlet, red flowered, red flowered pale seeded, mass cross F1 and f2 selections, an 'everything' batch with a few seeds from every packet and unlabelled bag of seed, and 'glossy pod' a selection from a mass growout last year. Did it come from some cross or a random bag...?

Planted rocket and tatsoi in pots in a mini greenhouse. Rocket has already germinated in a couple of days.

I was going to go buy some new troughs for the fence lines and plant some peas and broadbeans under row covers but hurt my back so it'll probably have to wait until August now. Looking like it's going to be a very mild winter (BOM site and general observation). We haven't had a major frost yet and no successive frosts. Only issue is sunlight really. When my back is up to it I'll move some of the potted brassicas up to the balcony which is sunnier (and offers a few degrees temperature protection too). Chillis have hardly even been damaged apart from yellowing a bit so they're still occupying the space up there. I'm in the odd situation of not wanting to grow any hot chillis next season beyond jalapenos and long red cayennes but having plants which look like they will overwinter pretty easily. Very difficult for me to kill healthy plants.

It's also known as Mache. It self seeds prolifically and grows even in the coldest Aus climates but it's in my opinion a really boring salad green, lacking either an interesting taste or texture. Still a nice thing for those little unused corners, but I much prefer miner's lettuce.

Because it's easy to grow, it's one of the greens I grow to feed my dragons.
