The garden is looking great at the moment – and I’m enjoying it before the hot weather comes and turns it all a bit brown and unsightly.
Fruits are fruiting: The tamarillo has flowers all over it, some of which are starting to set fruit, the fig has figs forming and my old passionfruit looks like it wants to produce again this year. All these are very exciting but its the passionfruit I am most pleased about as the one I planted out recently isn’t putting on as much new growth as I would like….
They aren’t the only things fruiting. Tomatoes are being set, beans developed, cucumbers forming and capsicums are growing. Those capsicums are on a plant that I brought through the winter and as a result I am very proud of it (not that I did much other than not pulling it up out of its pot last May). Both my capsicums made it through winter (along with all my chillies) – only one is fruiting so far but both have flowers on them. The slower one was the one I pruned and I have to say the pepper plants that weren’t pruned or were pruned in mid Spring are now the ones that are the most vigorous.
Elsewhere in the garden the shallots look like they might be starting to form bulbs.
The drying beans are flowering:
But less good is that there’s something wrong with one of my pots of potatoes:
Diagnosis and cure would be gratefully accepted.
And that was November – the attached doc shows what I sowed and planted and when I did it. November 2011
