I usually plant yellow (mild) chillies, tomatoes, capsicums, lettuce and herbs which possums do not seem to touch but have blocked up any possible rabbit entry (they a few around Forestville) so I really have no problems.I Still would love to find out when and how to plant my purple corn.

Late Spring is a good time to sow maize/corn in cooler areas. The soil temperature needs to be above 15 degrees before Summer crops will really take off. A soil thermometer is a good investment, they cost around $20.00.
