Started this garden early January 2020 in the summer season over here in Australia.
The atriplex silver coastal bush has just shot up even more after trimming it back.
Four months later. Carrots will be picked.
Hope you like my progress.
Just potting these up. Hoping to ask you guys what you know any more about these plants?

I began planting the atriplex cinerea in January 3 in a half months ago in this garden here.
This is the slow succession of my vegetable patch over the course of 3 months.
My atriplex in the 3rd month I cut back a bit because it was growing all over the place un controlled.
Over the months my entire carrots,silverbeet and parsley with chives has just shot up.
