Spring Vegetables – Melbourne

As we all know, Spring is one of the busiest times of the year in the garden and a great time for the planting of a whole range of vegetables that don’t cope with Winter frosts; like tomatoes, capsicum, and cucumber. — Yummy Gardens

For Autumn we trialed some vegetable and herb pots near the front door – this worked reasonably well, so we will refresh them for Spring.

🥕 VEGETABLES:
✅ Beans – dwarf green & yellow
Beetroot
Bok Choy
✅ Capsicum
Carrots

✅ Eggplant
Potato (in the back garden)
✅ Pumpkin – Jap
✅ Silverbeet (from Autumn planting)

✅ Tomatoes (wait until Cup Day)
Watermelon
✅ Zucchini – Blackjack
🌾 HERBS:
✅ Basil -with tomatoes
✅ Coriander

❝ In spring, by the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ❞
— Margaret Atwood
