Let's get this ball rolling! I notice there are a lot of antipodeans (mostly Melbournians, ahem, wonder why that is?) signed up so far, so I'd like to know... what are you planning on growing over the winter?

We have some chard that's still going strong from the summer, but I think I'll plant some more because you can hardly have too much. I'm going to try kale again (got a couple of varieties) even though they got eaten by something last year within days of planting out seedlings. Beetroot, definitely (got two kinds, will try not to mix them up with chard this year). Some asian greens (bok choy and choy sum). Some spinach. Oh, and celeriac, because why not? We would probably be more likely to eat it than celery, and we can use the tops for making stock (which is about the only thing we usually buy celery for anyway).

I think that's about it. How about you?
