My summer veggie patch is going busters at the moment. Lots of tomatoes, herbs, corn, zucchinis, eggplant, spinach and all the other usual suspects. Having a great time eating from my own garden.
However, it’s got me thinking about the winter crop. Broccoli, sprouts, beans etc.
When/how is the best time to get these things going? Any seasoned Canberra veggie growers got some advice?
Winter is coming…
I usually plant my leeks, onions and cabbage etc at around Easter, depending on whether we have had a decent cool snap.

Diggers also have a great month-by-month list with direct links to buy seeds, although it seems that many seeds for autumn planting won’t be shipping till late Feb / early March.
Seems to be predominantly root vegetables, alliums and cabbage.
My summer crop is still in full swing with little room to start sowing the cold season crop just yet!
Do you pay on the first date?
