Growing local

After the Rescue, came the Rescued, Now the Restored 1. Well not fully restored, that is a few months off but here are some photos of how things are progressing.

I have been planting quite a few Vegetables and Fruit Trees, as well as my usual supply of Herbs, Companion and Beneficial Insect Plants. The Blueberry Patch is coming along beautifully, with it's row of Alpine Strawberries. I am not the photo taker of the family. I took quite a few but these are the best of the ones I did take.

Susan, I have grown them before very successfully and the taste is amazing, but I will see how these ones go this time. I do have a big packet of seeds so will try and remember to bring some of them to the next GV.

So pretty Dianne - your garden is amazing as always.  Can you let me know how the alpine strawberries go?  I've been interested in getting some but didn't know how they would do here - you can  be my guinea pig :)

I always wondered where the strawberry flavour came from (natural or unnatural that you may have in flavouring), as most strawberries varieties I try are sweet, and quite tasty. Then I tried an alpine strawberry. Not as much juicy sweetness as other strawberries, but 100% strawberry flavour.
