Well, summer is almost done for another year. But, that doesn’t mean your gardening has to be over yet! Autumn is a great time to plant your seeds, and watch them grow into tasty additions to your salads and meals in Spring and Summer! If you haven’t dug your vegetable bed yet, you can always get your gardening services in Sydney such as Amico to help!
So what can you plant on your veggie patch this Autumn Season? There are heaps to choose from, here are some of them:
You can grow baby carrots if you have a balcony garden, or regular carrots for your full sized veggie patch. These beautiful orange (or purple, if organic) vegetables grow with little fuss, so long as you thin them out every so often.
Healthy, tasty, staining and as every Aussie knows, excellent on a burger, beetroot grow very well in your veggie patch!
Used in a massive variety of dishes, garlic grows great when planted in March.
This is one of the simplest and the fastest veggies to grow. They only take about 6 weeks and you’ll just love pulling them out one by one!
Incredibly flavoursome, incredibly easy to grow, incredibly satisfying to pull from the ground. Just keep them watered well.
Greens and Leafy Vegetables
Spinach / Baby Spinach
Tasty, healthy and iron rich. Popeye’s secret muscle formula! You can grow this one even if your space is limited.
Pak Choi / Bok Choy
Chinese veggies, go great in soups or steamed as a side portion. You’ll love these!
One of the most famous superfoods, it goes very well in your smoothies, or soups etc. It’s pretty easy to grow, and is a great repeat harvest option.
Tell me the last time you went a whole week without eating lettuce. I bet you can’t. Well, let me tell you that lettuce is super easy to grow, as long as you give it water every day.
Easy to grow, great taste, can be done in a balcony garden, go well with thai soup and many other dishes, and smell great. What else do you want?
I accept that not everyone is a fan. But it’s very healthy, very easy to grow, and goes with a lot. It’s a no-brainer for me.
Other Vegetables/ Fruit
Easy to grow and thrive, tasty and easy to harvest, can be grown on balcony gardens too and like to vine and tangle up poles.
Broccoli and Cauliflower
Exceptionally healthy, one harvest will yield a lot of food. Remember to cover them up though, as there’s plenty of other critters out there who find them healthy and tasty too!
Onions, like garlic, go in almost every meal. There are lots of varieties too, from shallots to brown onions and red onions (my personal favourite).
I can’t overstate how amazing lemons and lemon trees are for a variety of reasons. Lemon trees brighten up your yard, plus, lemons are so healthy for you. They are pretty expensive in the markets, so why not grow your own?
Some of the greatest superfoods of all time. Including :
These strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries are sure to improve your life!Needless to say, these are tasty, juicy, and go great in a wide range of things, such as smoothies, on muesli, or to snack on. You will want to protect them from the gaze of birds, insects and other creatures!
Remember, everything needs care and attention, but now is the time to get planting all of the above. If you have the space, why not plant it all! You will not regret it. And if you have any questions, you can always ask Amico for help.
