The weather is beautiful at our place at the moment. The evenings and mornings are cool but most afternoons have been perfectly sunny. This is great for soul as well as for the vegetable garden.
I have fruit on my young L’Inconnue pear tree. This is an old French heirloom variety, a late harvesting winter pear. After nurturing this tree for almost a year I am very excited to see this tiny fruit appear.
These little figs are steadily growing on my young Prestons Prolific fig tree. My trusty Digger’s Club catalogue informs me that the crop at this time of year is known as the ‘breba’ crop.
Baby beetroot leaves looking so pretty.
Beautiful rhubarb stems just waiting for a piping hot winter crumble.
My garlic crop is looking fairly healthy so far. I am eagerly anticipating the harvest later in the year.
Romanesco broccoli which I planted early (rather impatiently!) but it seems to be happy and healthy.
A tangle of basil and capsicums at the front of the photo, holding on bravely as the weather cools off.
Snow peas in the afternoon sunshine.
Crunchy carrots and beans.
What is happening in your garden at the moment?
Are you harvesting, planting, planning or cooking with your produce?
Have a lovely Sunday friends.
