|White carrots = seeds that produce white carrots!|
This is the carrot bed today...the long shoots poking out are volunteer garlics that were undiscovered and therefore unharvested last year. Alliums and carrots are supposed to be a good match, so I left them in there to do their thing.

|Leeks always chug along happily, here amongst some self-sown flatleaf parsely|
This lettuce has also been making an appearance lately...I think the seeds came from a food swap trade earlier in the year. I really like it..I want to call it a 'rouge' for some reason...

|In the greenhouse: peas, carrots and spring onions|
|Calendula - for soapmaking|
|Self-sown silverbeet and parsley|
The chook dome was also moved about a week or two ago and the exposed bed was sown with some birdseed. I am trying an experiment to see how this works for a green manure crop, that is, if the swamp hens don't eat all the seeds first!
Besides the perennial herbs of sage, rosemary, oregano and thyme, we are also harvesting spring onions and coriander and are also making our way through the Queensland Blue pumpkins and the last of the garlic.
