What to Plant in January: 18 Summer Vegetables to Plant Now in Sydney (Temperate Zone)

I barely have to water the garden this summer, since it’s been raining so much. These are unusual weather conditions, so the best we can do is keep planting and seeing what does well. This season my approach to planting had not been a very planned one. I just basically went nature-style on it and planted a whole heap of different things. After three weeks the plants suited to this summer were thriving, and the others…well, that is life. I suppose it would be safe to say that they contributed to the organic matter in the soil.

The outcome: beans and tomatoes rule the patch, followed by potatoes, cucumbers and radishes. Here are some things you can try for yourself!
