My sweet potatoes are ready for harvest, and perpetual spinach is very reliable!
Choko vine happily climbing up the shed
Tropical garden with pawpaw circle also going well, had to add extra lines of string for Madagascar beans (not shown)
Bush Bean Provider – Eden Seeds. Flowers are pretty little things and beans are perfect! Have never had beans so fresh! 27/8/16
Meanwhile, Rob’s Broadbeans have been flowering, very pretty. No sign of beans yet
Liking this White Iceberg Climbing rose, and also my native hibiscus. The hibiscus is 100% edible (including rootball, I’m told!) and just gave me some seeds that I’ve sown next to its mother.
Thanks to Cathie, I’ve started my Sourdough adventures, couldn’t believe how easy it is! And Fuss-free. So far I’ve made two (above). And of course, needs some tasty toppings to go with! Strawberry marmalade (my favourite), Beetroot and onion jam (great with goats cheese! Feta making is next on my homesteading list), and some sauerkraut.
My latest pride and joy: first lettuce success! Worried about Summer coming though. Lettuce Tango (Diggers) 28/8/16
- Cheese making
- Self sufficient salad greens by Christmas (fingers crossed they'll be Summer-proof. Have tried a few different ways including wicking bins and mounds, in sun and shade). Must get back into habit of sprouts
- Make some big wicking Macropots for fruit trees (thinking tropical nectarine and citrus for now)
- Outdoor shade area
