365/2 – Transition Seasonal Garden Plants


Our home organic gardening plants in Ballarat are almost survivors from the Australia summer HEAT WAVE last January 2014. Most of the plants were drying up very quickly but we have to sacrifice water bills watering our plants from tap water to benefit and harvest tastier organic veggie fruits of labour this autumn (March to May 2014). I need to mention what month is the season in Australia from what I observed some people overseas relate our seasons like North America or UK, which is the opposite side of the world.

After six weeks vacation this is what the  backyard garden looks like. MID SPRING (OCTOBER 2013) - All lush green including the lawn grasses, yellow flowers were the Kale plants going to bolt intentionally for keeping seeds.




EARLY SUMMER (DECEMBER 2013) - Artichokes ready to harvest but I wanted to see in real how the flowers arrived! Plant with white flowers are first flowers flowering season of an Olive tree.
MID SUMMER (JANUARY 2014) - Artichokes are bolted displaying its purple flowers first time in season! Another purple flowering at the background closer to the fence was Radichio plant just for attracting bees. The bees are my great garden pollinators for my growing squash, zucchini plants and other plants.
