With the weather heating up much recently in Melbourne for summer, I decided to recently dig out my crops.
As this was my first time growing them, and with the differing information online that I found, I was not really sure what to expect. It was however a pleasant find to know that many carrots can be grown from just carrot tops, and beetroot can be grown from just seeds.
It is just a matter of time, and consistently watering and feeding them with nutrients.

Recently I was also made the unofficial "gardener" at school. As I had mentioned in an earlier post, I was probably the only staff on board who knew even anything about gardening techniques and planting methods.

These carrots and beets were grown during the winter months.Since I haven't tried planting them in Malaysia, I would not be able to give you a definite answer.
