OCTOBER IN THE GARDEN’18

Patchwork Blog Banner

We’ve had rain! The dams have apparently almost reached 70%, and hopefully there will be more rain before temperatures start rising more rapidly. I don’t think Cape Town’s relationship with water will ever go back to what is once was, and that’s not a bad thing. As we head into the heart of Spring, it’s the perfect time to get planting while the ground is fertile from the rain.

Amaranth, Basil, Bush and Climbing beans, Beetroot, Butternut, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Carrot, Chard, Cape Gooseberry, Celery, Chives, Chilli, Cucumber, Eggplant, Kale, Kohlrabi, Ginger, Globe Artichoke, Leek, Leaf Mustard, Lettuce, Jerusalem artichokes, Onion, Parsnip, Parsley, Peas, Potato, Pumpkin, Radish, Rhubarb, Sweetcorn, Sweet pepper, Sweet potato, Turnip, Tomato, Watercress, Watermelon, Zucchini
