I’ve been doing some research about different types of seeds and their characteristics. I love making lists and flicking through seed catalogues, so this little exercise has combined these two joys in one.
Although, I’m not a big fan of watering. It’s…. well…. it’s boring. Thankfully we’ve had lots of rainfall recently so I’ve been able to skip the odd day or two. Matt has a water gauge and has been faithfully recording the rainfall on a registration chart. Sadly, between bush fires and torrential rainfall Australia remains a predominantly dry sunburnt country.
Here’s a list of tough drought tolerant edible plants:
Bean – Scarlet Emperor Runner
Broccoli – Waltham 29
Cucumber – Sweet and striped
Rockmelon – Planters Jumbo
Tomato – Cherry Yellow Pear, Purple Calabash Climbing
Warrigal Greens (New Zealand Spinach)
Watermelon – Sugarbaby
Once again, if you know of any other edible varieties that are drought tolerant, please let me know.
