August is approaching, and with it comes the last of the winter trays before we head to spring (we know, everyone’s looking forward to Spring). Our loyal Easy Peasy gardeners have been posting pictures of thriving Cauliflowers and reporting on the sweet crunch of fresh peas. Now is the time to plant the last round of winter leafy greens: with immune-boosting Kale and Baby Spinach. Also in the tray are Beetroot and Celery plants (anyone for a hipster juice?) with Lettuce and Leeks working together to round it off. Our beneficial flower of the month is the Mighty Marigold which brings colour and panache, and keeps away those pesky pests.
A reminder to keep planting and harvesting on a monthly cycle. Planting now means you keep harvesting 2-3 months hence. When you get there, you’ll thank yourself.
The VEG OUT tray is a monthly organic 24-seedling tray with a variety of vegetables, herbs and helpful flowers – all locally-adapted, open-pollinated & lovingly-cultivated. The seasonal thinking (what is good to plant right now) and the companion planting thinking (who grows well with who) has been done by our experienced team. We hold the planting calendar – all you do is plant and enjoy the harvest.
