A Sunday Stroll Around the Garden...

By Scarecrow

The garden has taken off after a slow start with a cooler than usual Spring this year.

Earwigs have lingered causing much damage to young curcurbits and Basil!

In Bed 2 the Tromboncino Zucchini is just steering it's way to the trellis

while the Capsicums remain small but are starting to flower.

Nearby Bed 3 the late planted Tomatoes are climbing in their cage and flowering

while the Lettuces are ready for leaf picking.

I have taken the Cucumber Wicking Pots out of the Shade Tunnel

as they are covered in flowers that need the bees to visit for fruit-set.

Over in the Wicking Fridge Beds I have Chillies setting on the advanced purchased seedling while the home seeded Serrano Peppers are just beginning to flower.

Next to them the Strawberry Bed has needed a shade cover mainly to stop the black birds stealing the fruit...safe underneath the strawberries are getting huge!!

The Egyptian Onions have only produced tiny bulblets this year due to being moved at the wrong time...it needed to happen. These little clusters of growth I remove and just bury in the ground, they will form clumps of small onions that can be used as green/spring onions.

On the other side of the grapevine Bed 14 is providing masses of Beans for the freezer.

Tomatoes are setting and growing well in Bed 16...they just need some

warm weather to start to ripen.

It's a few days short of our Summer Solstice when traditionally I would harvest the Potato Onions but this week we've had some rain so they needed to be out of the damp ground...I'll dry them in the sun for storage. Bed 18 is now empty and has been prepared for a planting of Banana Rockmelons.

Bed 19 is producing some Golden Zucchini and some of the Kakai Pumpkins are setting fruit.
