Recommendations for good veges for planting in autumn / winter?

Hi everyone,

 

I live in a apartment and have got a small garden area (= multiple pots) on my west facing baloncy. While I've got herbs out there at present, I'd really like to do something more adventurous and fire up some vegetables in autumn and winter.

 

Are there any vegetables that the community can recommend would be good in limited space in colder months?

 

(FYI - I am based on Sydney so it's not toooo cold)

 

Thanks!

Andrew

Hi @AndrewSa, you have plenty of options, including peas, beans, carrots, garlic, onions, broccoli, cauliflower and beetroot.

Hi @AndrewSa,

 

Hope all is well.

 

Just wondering if you've chosen some vegies and got stuck into planting?

Hydroponic garden.No soil but the plants grow in a fertilised water solution which nourishes the root system.

Dale, it would also be good to get an update from you on how the setup is going.

 

Thanks,
