I’m a bit late with my end of May post, my excuse is that I’m doing quite a bit of paid work from home at the moment and unfortunately it needs to take precedence over blogging. A sad state of affairs indeed. What were neither sad nor sorry were my fruit harvests in May. Loads of tamarillos, some feijoas from footpath, my first ever orange and my first ever lime all made for a very happy month on the fruit front.
Then there’s the potential. Not only are there: more oranges on the tree, meyer lemons which are almost ripe and more limes to come:
There’s also the promise of berries. This is lovely new growth on my most recent fruity acquisitions – 3 blueberries that I am growing in pots.
May saw the end of most of my summer crops but I do still have a couple of eggplants producing – I doubt they will last much longer though.
As far as winter crops go: the garlic and broad beans are both up. The peas have emerged and the shallots have sent their shoots up above the pea straw mulch.
The brassicas are starting to look promising: The broccoli is heading up and the raddichio is hearting nicely.
But its the red cabbages which I always enjoy watching grow the most. I really like the colour of their leaves and stems – very pretty.
It will be a long while before these are ready though. What’s growing well in your garden at the moment?
