Broccoli, broccoli and more broccoli

Henri Ham

AWAPUNI NURSERIES

Only just under two months until winter is officially here. Which means if you haven’t got your winter vegetables in the ground yet, you need to get moving. Plant them while the soil is still warm and they’ll get the kick start they need. Plant them when the soil is already cool and you might be eating them in spring! Now you need to choose what to grow. I’m a big fan of broccoli during winter, and not just the regular variety. I like to plant your run-of-the-mill romanesco broccoli but also broccoflower and Italian broccoli. Broccoflower is a hybrid between cauliflower and broccoli and has a milder and slightly sweeter taste than cauliflower. It has small cauli-shaped heads and is lime green. Italian precoce broccoli forms highly decorative light green clusters of heads that resemble sea coral. The unusual tip of each spear is conical rather than round but the taste is true broccoli at its very best! You can get all three varieties in one of our mixed veg bundles. The mixed veg bundles are great if you’re feeding a small household or like to stagger your planting. Each bundle has a couple of each variety of plant, rather than lots of the same variety. You can order your mixed veg bundles from our online shop at www.awapuni.co.nz. Or pick up some Awapuni seedlings when Next I recommend adding some lime to you’re next at your local supermarket, The the soil prior to planting. This will also help Warehouse or Bunnings. prevent club root. Once you’ve got your seedlings you need Then plant each seedling around 35cm to find somewhere to plant them. Because apart. This will ensure the seedlings have broccoli is from the brassica species, it’s room to expand and grow. important you grow them somewhere Because broccoli can take a long time you haven’t planted any other brassicas to mature, during the earlier weeks you (like cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts can plant other quick growing seedlings, etc) recently. This will prevent your plants like spinach and silverbeet, in the spaces getting club root – a disease which stops between each seedling. This is a great the heads on your brassicas developing fully. way of maximising the use of space in your

garden. Your fast growing seedlings should be ready in about six weeks – depending on the weather where you are. And your various varieties of broccoli in around eight to 10 weeks. Once they’re ready, harvest your heads before the plant flowers as, once it does, it will die. Simply use a knife to diagonally cut off the heads you have selected. This will encourage new heads to grow and will also ensure a long cropping season. If you harvest too much just chuck the excess in

the freezer. They will keep for two to three months. Lastly, after growing brassicas it’s a good idea to inject some nutrients (particularly nitrogen) back into the soil. Try growing a cover crop like blue lupin. Lupin is a good choice of cover crop as it’s not a member of the brassica family (like mustard). When the cover crop has matured, dig it into the soil. This will get the soil all ready for next season’s planting.

AT HOME

Are you ready for winter? With winter just around the corner, now is the time to do some routine maintenance around your home to prepare for the weather ahead. Taking the time to do some work now may save on some major expenses later on. Some of these preventive maintenance jobs can be performed by the homeowner, and some may need to be done by professionals. Many homeowners may not know where to begin when trying to figure out what type of routine maintenance needs to be performed on their homes. Hopefully these tips will get you started.

Check gutters and pipes Clean and clear gutters of debris And although cleaning your spouting is sometimes the last thing on your mind, it could prevent costly repairs later. The roof is your home’s first line of defence against the elements and your gutters do a great support job in directing all of that water away from your foundations.

In winter pooled water can freeze and expand, causing damage to spouting.

Clogged gutters and downpipes restrict the flow of water and in extreme conditions cause spouting to overflow, preferably down facias and not inside your home.

To clear them yourself, you will need a ladder, your hands are best but a garden trowel or salad tongs are also good for scooping out debris, a hose to spray chan-

nels and downpipes and a gutter sealant to repair any leaks. Try to avoid leaning your ladder against the guttering. First you will need to scoop out leaves and debris. Remove downpipes if possible and hose down debris from spouting. This

is the best time to check for leaks. Run a hose down and clear downpipes. Clear and check stormwater drains and/or soak holes aren’t pooling water and leaking into foundations, causing rising damp into your home.

Check the flashing Around your chimney and any openings in the roof, such as skylights for leaking problems.

Chimneys Have chimneys and flues inspected and cleaned if necessary. Whether you decide to clean a chimney yourself or hire a professional, either way you’ll want to make sure a good job is done. Cleaning a chimney is important to prevent chimney fires, and potential house fires. Therefore, the cleaner must be thorough and comprehensive in carrying out the cleaning. You’re not just clearing out the soot and dust, but you need to scrape and remove creosote that has built up on your chimney walls.

Autumn is a good time to do some indoor painting The weather will still be warm enough outside to leave windows open to ventilate during painting. Most of your professional painters are not as busy in autumn as the rest of the year. You may be able to get a good price to have your interior painted. After the painting is done, make sure your leftover paint is stored somewhere like a garage, to prevent it from freezing.

Inspect external doors and garage doors Make sure they close tightly and install weather-stripping and door thresholds if needed.

Clean and store patio furniture, umbrellas, children’s summer toys It is recommended that outdoor furniture be put inside for the winter, if possible. Just remember that if you cover your furniture to allow for airflow so no mould or mildew forms.

Drain and store garden hoses Insulation Make sure you have proper insulation in both your ceiling and underfloor. While checking your insulation, if you see any dark, dirty spots, it may indicate you have leaks coming into your home. You will need to try and locate these leaks and repair them.

Spot prime If you didn’t get to that exterior paint job this summer, spot prime any exposed timber to protect it from the elements.
