Aesthetically it doesn't help that the winter bulbs have died off leaving their old leaves and stalks. I'll need to get on and cover the beds with mulch.
Coming on are sweetcorn, beans, cabbages, potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes, carrots, turnips, celery, celeriac, squash, pumpkins,celeriac, cucumbers, capsicum and chillies.
Other plants are also showing their fruitfulness. The pomegranites are flowering prolifically this year for the first time. Hopefully we may see some fruit - the fruit costs about $5 each in the shops at present, so we planted these in the hope that we could one day supply Mark with fruit for his restaurant.
The quince tree has a good crop again. Unfortunately last year we only harvested a handful as the Rosellas beat us to them. This year we are planning a big net to foil the little poachers. Years ago we had apples, plums, and pears, but we gave up as we rarely got a ripe one. The birds however had very full bellies.
