While I had the camera out, decided to take stock of all the recent plantings, as well as existing trees etc....
Found a nice fat sprout!
Comfrey growing at the back, and okra left to seed..
Tomatoes doing well, kale flourishing (among self seeded amaranth) in the brick bed behind, raddichio and mustard greens competing for space
Kangkong in a planter box, brahmi in a pot
Lemons and kumquats, also in pots
The old faithfuls - bananas, pawpaws
Up on the deck, I looked down and up at the choko vine, and joy oh joy, spied 7 chokos in various sizes (picked 2 big ones today)
Inspected the beds near the custard apple tree ( lots of fruit this year, slurped the first one yesterday!) - pandan, kaffir lime, curry plant (not in picture) sweet potatoes growing wild
Hubby decided to extend the L shaped bed ( he'd cut down a huge palm tree a few weeks ago) - making space for a blueberry bush (yet to be found) and he put up a bracket for my upside down tomato plant
I walked up the side to the front of the house, going past the jicama (tubers should be ready in a couple of weeks!) and gave the rosellas an encouraging word - they have been such a joy, made 9 pots of jam so far!
With the radishes and silverbeet coming on well, and lettuces, chinese veges sown, hopefully this will be a very productive season! Looking for seed potatoes now, and nervously considering sowing carrots and beetroot again...
