That's funny - Here I am wishing I could grow tons of beets!  I just haven't got the knack - they won't do much for me here.

It's the shortest day next week, but being in the Southern hemisphere means we can grow all winter. This is the stuff that's active.
Broad beans
garlic
brassicas of all sorts
carrots
peas
Egyptian walking onions
Florence fennel
silverbeet, of course!
lettuces
spinach
beets
Chinese greens
Chillies (the hardcore Andeans just chug along all winter, but it's been so warm I still have annums with ripening fruit)
daikon
scorzonera
turnips
parsnips
onions
arugula (it's not allowed in the garden anymore and lives happily in cracks and corners)
Glaskins Perpetual rhubarb. The best.  Red, fat and on my breakfast all year round!
shallots
chervil. It's everywhere.
All the usual winter herb suspects, plus a few that have usually died down by now. The Vietnamese mint has actually nearly displaced the English mint. Maybe a floral analogy of the global situation?
pot marigolds
stocks
phacelia
zinnias are still setting seed
Borage is still flowering
I can't believe the buckwheat's germinating and growing!
my winter wheat experiment's looking great. Last year's rye experiment is still with me...
But it must be winter, since the red hot pokers (kniphofia) are flowering.

T. Pierce, anywhere else I would consider that an insult - on this forum it is a compliment!
