Now, is the best time to Sow your Brassica Seeds.

Now is the best time to start sowing your brassica seeds. Cabbage, Broccoli and Cauliflower will get off to a good start and sweeten up as winter arrives.

Happy Valley Seeds Website

Description from Happy Valley Seeds.
CABBAGE Copenhagen Market - 100 HEIRLOOM Seeds This early Cabbage variety holds up longer without splitting than any other variety! Great size, great flavor, and great for the home garden! Matures in 65-100 days. This heirloom variety of cabbage was developed in Denmark; they began selling it in 1909. This variety has good keeping ability, excellent uniformity, and rich flavour. This variety is outstanding for coleslaw. It's a popular market variety that has the added benefit of shipping very well. Protect your cabbage row from the caterpillar of the cabbage moth by draping lightweight row cover over the plants. Sowing time is Autumn to early Spring. Avoid hot times of the year. Prefer sunny position, sow 5mm deep, emerge 7-14 days, best germination at less than 22 °C soil temperature. Harvest approx. 65-100 days after sowing. Propagation notes will be supplied with seed packet. Lambley Nursery Website It seems Broccoli Arcadia (F1) is unavailable but they still have a good selection of Broccoli to choose from.

 I've just posted my latest YouTube video. Come and check it out.

I'm planting pea seeds that I saved from last years crop. It's late Summer and I want to find out if now is too early to plant peas or not.
Peas are a cool-season crop so I'm wondering if now is too early for them.

I planted Stewart F1 tomato seeds.

 Surfing around the interwebs last week, as you do on a rainy day, and I found myself on the Lambley Nursery website looking up tomato seeds.

You wouldn't believe it but there on the page is "Stewart F1", Tomato seeds for sale.

There was nothing left to do, but hit the add to cart button and get me a packet.

To add to the attraction it claims to have Terrific disease resistance as well.

I've been locked down! For three days.

 While I’m a fan of erring on the side of caution.

I did get caught up in the latest Greater Brisbane area lockdown.

My No.1 Goal for 2021 and Happy New Year.

 Happy new year to each and every one of you. My wish is for all your wildest dreams to come true, especially mine.

I've wanted a raised garden bed from Birdie Garden Products for some time now and I've made the decision that 2021 is the year. It's going to tack some work and time but I'm 100% determined to get this done.

Wish me luck.
