For those of you who are thinking of
doing some planting this week, now’s a good time to be planting Zucchinis,
tomatoes, capsicums, chillies, cucumbers beans and beetroot, and sweet corn for
most of Australia.

Add a handful of dolomite per square
metre where you’re going to plant tomatoes, capsicums and chillies.

This is also the time of year, if
you haven’t already, check your irrigation system.

Over the years plants grow bigger
and might block the path of one of your sprayers, or perhaps some of the
drippers have become blocked. That happens all too often.

Spice it Up

with Ian Hemphill

Chilli is a health food.If you’ve ever avoided chillies
because you think they’re too hot, you’ve been missing out on some of the
health benefits. Not only that, there are some pretty mild chillies around that
you could use instead.
A green chili pod has as much Vitamin
C as 6 oranges.
