Alright, so I’m going to preface this blog post by saying it is an outright brag - directed completely at Roger. He and I are obviously quite competitive and I copped it today at the garden visit. Yep, that’s right, I went home with tears in my eyes about all the wasted broccoli, the beautiful kohl rabbi, the gorgeous cabbages and the pumpkins, just left Willy nilly where they lay with little care from Roger at all. I whispered quietly to them that they wouldn’t have to fend for themselves if they were in my yard, I’d coddle them, water them, wrap them in a nice protective net to keep them safe. I’m sure they heard me, and would have come home with me if they could :)
But then I remembered, I can grow plenty of stuff good! So here you go Roger, check it out.
I’ll start with my mulberry tree. As you’ll notice, it is absolutely loaded with berries that are just waiting to mature.
Next are the strawberries. This is 1 of 15 pot!
My citrus certainly aren’t lacking, orange, dwarf mandarins and my never disappointing lemon, who despite me removing over 50 fruit and pruning it, STILL looks like this.
My angel peach has already got 20 fruit that are this size with plenty more small ones developing. Such a shame Roger, I may just have to thin some fruit, I have that many developing. :)
Next are my blueberries. Here’s hoping for a bumper crop this year.
Sophie, this ones for you. I got home this arvo and checked the egg box and squeee!!!! I think one of my Sussex is laying!!! I only have one brown layer going at the moment and checked the eggs before the GV, these two were here when I got home. Notice how small it is? Definitely a first egg!! But which one layed it I don’t know.
Lastly, I’ll let you know Roger that I went around to get some photos of my garden and I noticed these after not having been in the garden since last weeken :P So I’m (finally) going to get some broccoli too!!
And who needs flowers when you are growing Sicily purple broccoli! They take FOREVER to grow, I very nearly ripped these out thinking they weren’t going to do anything but my patience *laziness* paid off!! This is my second one.
So that’s it from me. I just had to prove I’m a good gardener, and now I don’t even need to cry over broccoli cause mine is nearly here!
