I did take the camera out early yesterday morning, so I now have a bit of a record of what the yard looks like. Well, what it looked like yesterday morning anyway!
The fridge gardens out the back are going well. We have 2 with strawberries in, 2 with potatoes, 2 with sweet potatoes
One has tomatoes that are near on finished, this one had potatoes too but they're not doing very well.
Beans are in 1, I don't know what sort of beans as I can't remember but if picked young then they taste pretty good raw and just picked.
The tank gardens up nearer the house are full of weeds but there is some food in there too.
There's corn in here, too much lemon balm, kale, capsicums, rockmelons that might give us a couple of fruit if the slaters don't get them. I'm hoping the stocking will protect them as well as support them while they grow.
Pulled our first carrot last week and it was a pretty good looking carrot considering I'm not too great at getting carrots to grow. It looks yellow but is orange
The proper size according to husband tomatoes aren't ripe yet but we have been picking and eating the small cherry type ones for months. He says he doesn't like them as they are too small but I will keep growing them as they produce for such a long time. And if they selfseed and grow I see it as natures way of saying they should be here.
The drums down the driveway are hit and miss but there are some nice looking tomatoes in some, we will get a feed or 2 of corn, dug up a small amount of garlic last week, the asparagus never gets inside, the gogi has berries on it but not many, I think the birds get them before me, A few of these have potatoes in them and there is always enough for a feed if I want to go bandicooting for them.
These ones have raspberries in 2, a chilli/capsicum plant in 1 and some JA's coming up in the 4th. I had though all the JA's had rotted away but am pleased to see they hadn't.
So as you can see we still have food growing, not as much as I'd like but enough to keep us from going hungry. I buy onions and carrots but not much else. Next year will be better.
