Make room for the cabbage...and the onions

Cabbage and cauliflower

Heavy rains from a few days ago meant death to the just emerging carrot seedlings so it gave me some much needed space to stick half of the above (the cabbage) into a new home. They should do well in this cooler spot. The carrots were sown again, this time in a large pot because I have no more space!

Squeezing in the cabbage

Unfortunately, they didn't get to enjoy their "space" for too long because I dug up some young onion seedlings and through the miracle of the innernetz, found out that cabbage and onions make good neighbors, and in they went, all in a neat row.

Average daytime temperature: 22°C / 72°F


  1. Your cabbage starts look great Rowena. And such pretty little onion transplants, what kind are they?

  2. ooh I like the new background on this blog :) and your garden is taking shape!

  3. Julie - this is where I look sheepish and admit that I did not bother to label the onions. They were actually mixed into the shiso planter. How that happened, I have no clue, and for once I cannot just blame my dogs.

    Kat - only NOW I find out about the new template designer. The only thing that's missing is a tomato background image in the options, but I'll fix that soon enough!

  4. I can't believe your average daily temps are 72 degrees! It was in the high 90's here today and that is typical August weather for us. I won't be planting onions or cabbage for at least a month yet. Too hot! :)

  5. Racquel - where I'm at it has never risen to 90 degrees. Close (88°) but not quite. The higher elevation makes such a huge difference.

  6. Your garden looks great this year, Rowena! You've been busy kicking garden-butt!

  7. Christina - it's like a sickness...a disease! The more seeds I sow, the more stuff that I want to grow!
