How are your plants doing? Looks like you have a nice garden started. What are the temps like there? Weather conditions? :)

My original start (back in mid-Autumn) wasn’t very successful – the only thing that has survived is the garlic. But now that it’s spring here I’m getting ready to go again. A lot of the plants listed above are currently seeds and seedlings that I’ve started inside. Late October is the traditional time for putting out frost sensitive plants (tomatoes, etc) in Hobart, so I’m trying to get myself organised ahead of time for that. So far so good :-)

Winter has actually been mild here (much warmer nights than average – we’ve had very few frosts), but it has been very wet.

So your average winter temps must be above what we get. We get weeks of below freezing temps sometimes. Not all the time. Av. temps here are in the low to mid 30’s, I think. At least based on my findings last winter.

I can’t wait to see pics of your plants as they gain some altitude. :)

I can’t wait for the plants to gain some altitude myself! :)

Looks like you have a good selection of plants on the go…
Mine almost got washed away in the rain we’ve had here.
One of my friends has had a temporary moat around her house and vege gardens in the hopes of stopping the whole lot disappearing under water.

Thanks – I’m looking forward to seeing what I can produce in the garden this year. We’ve had a lot of rain here over winter and the first month of spring (second wettest September on record), but certainly not to moat-building levels :)
