There was an old pumpkin patch down the back when we moved here. It was good because we got lots of pumpkins. We wanted to grow more vegies though so we dug up 2 more beds, my brother and I did lots of digging to make them so we could grow our winter vegies.
We looked at lots of seeds on the internet and we like The Lost Seed, Eden seeds and Greenpatch we like these old varieties because there open pollinated which is good because it saves old varieties and they are strong varieties that have been grown by lots of people who have saved the best seeds year after year.
I am growing radishes in our garden :) they are very nice but pretty hot which is good, I like them with a plowman's lunch. We are growing garlic,celery,spring onions, rainbow chard, beetroots, cauliflower, lettuce, coriander, kale, fennel ,spinach, rocket, carrots and broccoli.
We need to do weeding and watering to look after our garden and we are thinking about what to put in when it gets warmer and the frosts stop. We had a really big frost this morning.
When we were away our dad dug over the pumpkin patch and turned it into 2 more garden beds and he built a big fence around it to keep the dogs out, in spring we are going to grow rock melons,snow peas , purple climbing beans and cucumbers on the fence.
