Continuing on my citrus harvest, the Emperor mandarins on my little dwarf tree are starting to ripen. It was planted late in 2014 and I have about 20 mandarins on it this year. The branches are so laden with mandarins, they are drooping down. I will eat them even at this colour stage and they are super sweet. They do have seeds but oh well. Can't wait until my other varieties start fruiting - I should be able to pick fresh mandarins for about 4-5 months.
Lettuce bed is looking good and is very productive.
Raspberries are still pumping. Need to get time to make two more barrels for the heritage type so that I can get heaps more. They are also getting smaller - probably due to the vine being in complete shade at this time of year. I'll experiment with some different positions with the pots and see if it makes a difference.
My potatoes are looking super healthy - but that is never my problem. It's keeping them healthy to the very end so my spuds get to be decent size that I struggle with -> let's see how we go this year.
Latest project - reducing the wasted grass space in the citrus grove and increase the garden bed size for salvias, flowering plants and hardy herb. This is what it currently looks like and stay tuned for further updates :)
Well that's it from me folks - happy gardening.
