Any suggestions apart from silverbeet and broad beans????


The diabetic can eat the Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, cabbage, cauliflower,
broccoli, spinach and silverbeet; the medicated one can eat the spuds. They
can both eat the broad beans, peas (snow? sugar snap?), beetroot, lettuce,
carrots, turnips, Swedes, mustard and cress, parsnips, etc.

Kohl Rabi, turnips, swedes will all grow readily with the winter, all
depends on whether you like them,


For flavour, swedes win hands down IMO.

Hi All,

Have some spare space in the veggie garden in southern Victoria, and
with winter approaching (severe frosts here), wouldn't mind some
suggestions for winter crops.

One challenge is that one consumer is diabetic (ie cut down on spuds)
and the other is on a medication that requires minimisation of vitamin
K (leafy green veggies, but spuds are fine).

Any suggestions apart from silverbeet and broad beans????

Linda
