The edible garden tends to get forgotten amongst the haste of Christmas. A little work at this time of the year will reward with tasty produce even in the hottest months. In warmer areas tomatoes will be fruiting at Christmas, other areas will have to wait until later. Plant another crop now to follow on from the first sowing. In a large hanging basket where it is too sunny for a lot of other plants, plant some Cherry tomatoes. Red, yellow, and orange varieties not only look great but will fruit brilliantly over the summer. A sure way to get any member of the family eating fresh tomatoes. It is time to plant dwarf beans, beetroot, loose leaf lettuce, corn, chillies, capsicum, celery, corn, honey dew melon, eggplant, silverbeet, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, and watermelon.
