Late summer in the vegie patch February is a busy month in the edible gar- den. It s a matter of balanc- ing the demands of the remaining summer crops and preparing for the cool season varieties to come. Nowisthetimetosow seeds of root crops such as beetroot, radishes, parsnips, carrots and turnips. A handy tip to keep the seeds moist and cool is, after sowing, to lay a wooden plank or some damp newspaper over the row of seeds. Leave for a week or so and then begin checking regularly to check for germination. Remove immediately after the seedlings appear. February is a good month too for sowing leafy vegies such as let- tuce, silverbeet and cab- bages. Lettuce particularly hates heat so think about watering seeds with chilled water or popping the punnets into the fridge for a few days after sowing. With cooler weather approaching, its now a better time of year to grow Iceberg-type let- tuce. Before planting, dig plenty of organic matter, compost or manure into the soil. Some Yates quality blood and bone or Dynamic Lifter Plus can be added at this time, too. Once the plants are growing well they can be liquid fed with Thrive All Purpose or Nitrosol. Late summer is a troublesome time for gar- den problems. Watch for white butterfly cater- pillars attacking young cabbage relatives. Yates naturally-derived Suc- cess is an effective con- trol for these and other caterpillars. The other critical job is to keep on top of harv- esting. If crops go to seed, the plant will cease any further production. And overripe vegies or rotting crops are magnets for pests and problems.
