It’s been the hottest day this month – 26 to 27 degrees C at our place. My focus remains maintaining moisture. I use green mulch to cover the soil and to attract beneficial insects, and compost in raised garden beds – my answer to gardening on hardpan clay. Snapshots taken late this afternoon show some plants I’m growning.
This year, I’m trying out a late potato variety called Heather. According to my garden centre info sheet it has a purple skin, is oval shaped, has a smooth skin, is white fleshed and cooks well. I’ll see how it goes.
