Tasmania had one of its spectacular weather hissy-fits today!
I extracted myself from housework this afternoon to get out and do something useful in the garden and – its overcast and spitting. Not bad. Then the sun came out and I was baking – had to go in and get my hat!
About 15 minutes later, it all changed, I got cold and rained on – a lot. Then the cycle started again !!
A lot of windfall apples!! This trees fruit won’t be really ready for another month. The other tree we are eating a few from… a bit tart but enjoyable. They will sweeten up eventually.
I need to see if I can make some kind of cider soup thats nutritious for the garden out of the windfalls.
Oh – and you should see the hugely fat pademelon (small wallaby) that is gorging itself on the windfalls!! Such a big bottom its a wonder it can still bounce!!! Spotted it tonight. Will work on getting a photo for you!
Jeff got in and did a lot of pruning today! Now its a lot easier to use the pathways without fighting our trees!
Self seeded pumpkin doing really well! Have no idea what variety it is, but its free and has needed no help from me!
This tomato patch was full of sprawling tomatoes – the wind was keeping them flattened too, so about time to get in and tie them all up. (And weed)
I am enjoying this whole new garden area. So much produce in a small space! Even the new planting of sunflowers are going well and about to bloom!
I tied up some other tomatoes too … but after staring at these self seeded beauties, I just shrugged and told them they could do what they wanted! They are so huge I just don’t know where to begin. I think I will just let them be wild.
I have officially lost control of the hothouse!
There is a good days work in there to untangle things and sort it out. Never mind. I am quite liking it!
The passionfruit is loving its new home in the hothouse. Hopefully I will get in and train it a bit better and cut it back a bit before it totally takes over. Also hoping next year the fruit is a bit bigger and more plentiful, but thrilled with the few small ones we got for our first season.
Last task in the garden today was to do the rounds and harvest a few things!
Will make up some more pasta mix tomorrow and use up some more of the ripe tomatoes and zucchinis.
Hope your weekend is fabulous!
