My husband planted some parsley indoors. We hope to put it in a large pot on the deck in May.

we put in a small pack a couple of weeks ago and have now eaten some of the long shoots.
we will probably keep eating this year-round.
altho our winters may be frosty on occasion, we by no means get the snow that you do.
cheers richard

watercress should sprout easily and be good as a minigreen when small or bigger salad green when big.
cheers richard

The parsley is struggling! It's in a sunny window, but January is tough on plants.

possibly do well in a sunny window , if not to overcast.
keep moist.
watercress seed sprouts spectacularly well and can be used as sprouted greens or an indoor herb like your parsley.
we just planted a mix of watercress and lemongrass seeds in a pot outside.
the water cress is already growing, we have this pot standing in a dish of water.
cheers

First day this week I've been able to spend some time in my garden when it was light outside. So excited to see a cauliflower head started on one of my plants. Woot! It's about half the size of a tennis ball.

We planted vege seeds in the garden the other day
Ornamental corn, snake beans, perpetual spinach, warrigal greens, buttercrunch lettuce, black passionfruit, rhubarb, asparagus and coriander.

Since then we have had some bucketing rain and in a few days time some really hot weather.

Hope this gets them off to a great start

Cheers

Only a few small plants at present.
We have a patch of parsley growing.
Also some rhubarb, asparagus, giant spinach, silverbeet, rosemary , thyme, lemons, cumquats,
a grapevine, a passionfruit, some comfrey, garlic and onionweed, are pretty well all our edibles.

We also have other flowers and trees both native and exotic.
Here is a picture of our Maple last Autumn. It was already passed its best.
