Introducing My Kitchen Garden
I am in a part of Australia that ranges from extreme dry heat in the summer months to cold winters with snow some years and harsh frosts. Fortunately we can continue to grow throughout the winter months and the garden is never bare.
I have raised beds made of timber and corrugated iron in the vegetable garden and a formal herb garden adjacent to the house. Something is done in these gardens everyday even if it just picking something for the evening meal.
With the onset of autumn, the tomatoes, cucumbers,capsicums and chillis are starting to taper off. I have quite a number of brassica seedlings waiting in my greenhouse for some room to grow in the vegetable garden. I also have 30plus strawberry riunners to plant out. They will be shared between the vegetable garden and the orchard.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
