Getting ready for summer with fresh fruit and vegie crops.

Several members of the Mossman Gorge POP Garden Club recently tackled the necessary ground work to produce what will hopefully be a bumper crop of salad vegies later this year.

Kim Missionary, Irene Johnstone and Janice Ransom spent a busy day weeding the four vegie beds in the community garden.

They removed old plants from last year’s crops and replaced them with a variety of new seedlings including tomatoes, chives, cucumber, rocket salad, lettuce, and strawberries as well.

Winter is the prime time to plant crops on the Cape. In a few months’ time, these dedicated gardeners will be harvesting the rewards: plenty of fresh vegies ideal for summer salads.
