Hi Harfielders,

By the time you read this, we’ll all have experienced a South African lockdown. What a time to be alive. And yet, the garden keeps growing and producing. Wouldn’t it be great to have planted seeds during South Africa’s lockdown that grow and provide us all nourishment in the months to come? It would also save us trips to the shops!

Temperatures are cooling down notably, and there’s been some rain – here’s to plenty more this Autumn.

As the leaves fall from your trees, reminding us of the cycles of life, death and the resilience of nature, I hope you’re all safe, healthy and taking care of each other in the ways we can.

For those of you keen on planting veg this month, here’s May’s list:

Broad Beans, Broccoli, Cabbage, Calendula, Chard, Celery, Chinese Cabbage, Chives, Chilli Pepper, Kohlrabi, Garlic, Leek, Leaf Mustard, Lettuce, Onion, Parsley, Parsnip, Peas, Potato, Radish.
