CHRIST­MAS DIN­NER CROPS

NZ Gardener - Garden Diary 2018 - - Garden Tasks This Week -

Pam­per your peas, pota­toes and any other crops you may have planted ear­lier with Christ­mas din­ner in mind. If you are to suc­ceed in pro­vid­ing de­li­cious new pota­toes and freshly picked peas for the fes­tive mid­day meal, you’ll need to keep a close eye on them, wa­ter reg­u­larly, feed as of­ten as they will tol­er­ate and keep any pests at bay. Make sure you visit those parts of your gar­den reg­u­larly as prob­lems can crop up quickly when you’re not pay­ing close at­ten­tion. Check the leaves top and bot­tom and squish aphids, slugs and green vege bugs, if they have taken up res­i­dence.
