I google mapped Paynesville and was amazed by your part of the world. It looks like a paradise with all the parks, lakes, ocean nearby. Is Paynesville on an estuary or fresh water lake?

Ray, Those pix are just what I needed today. I'm sitting inside during a cold snap and can't wait for spring to arrive.
Thanks a bunch.

Ray your gardens look lovely! Nice shadehouse (looks solid and heavier than mine that blew over during the week), I also like the way you've marked out your squares and the zucchinis and pumpkins look very happy despite all the heat

Smile Hi folks,
I am glad you enjoyed seeing a summer garden. My wife is from Pittsburgh PA so used to the cold and snow.
Kelejan, a cold night in winter might get down to 4c but we only get a few of those. No snow as we are on the coast. There are mountains about an hour away where there is snow in winter. Our gardens grow all year round so is a constant project. I will start putting in winter veg about the end of March. I would mostly plant 3 to 4 rotations in every square, so highly productive.
Thomas, Paynesville is on an inland water way separated from the ocean by sand dunes and is 70 miles long and opens to the sea at the easterly end at Lakes Entrance. Lakes Entrance is a big commercial fishing port. The lakes are salt water and it goes up the many rivers for a few miles that feed the lakes.
Very good fishing and hugely popular boating and sailing in the summer. Our town is double the population at present with summer holidays. The tourists coming mean we have much better shops and lots of restaurants and cafes to enjoy the rest of the year. Population approx 4000 but growing fast.
cheers Ray

Sorry I disappeared for quite a while, unfortunately mental illnesses don't always play nice. But do have some good news about my little SFG - I've just dug out my 'autumn/winter' crop of leaf lettuce, bok choy and mizuna as the later two were going to seed and getting scraggly, the bunnies enjoyed the good leaves I harvested. 

I also planted 3 cloves of garlic into an empty corner of my SFG, the cloves had been sitting around the house for well over 2 years so decided to grow them instead of throwing them out, all 3 emerged and at a foot tall I've transplanted them into pots to free up that square. Bit of worm poo (both liquid and castings) and a good stir around and I've planted my "spring" crops. Carrots, Radishes, Chinese broccoli, Endive, Chicory and Mizuna. Think I'm a bit too late to sow my snow peas, oh well they can wait til next winter.
