Well, time travel fast, and its 2/3rds the way through Summer- its been a trying season with really hot days that has pushed some plants to their limits. fruit trees have seem to faired well, with some first year fruit. I will pick most of it off and let the tree grow. I am to still set up my gray water system to help them along.
Garden is still going well with plenty of spuds and corn, tomato’s are starting to grow and even the butternut pumpkins are growing. Still we are to face feb which for Victoria usually has some nasty weather over 40- considering we have had spates of over 40 already, dont know what to expect.
I ended up with quite a lot of onions- both brown and purple (Spanish). I lost a lot last year from going rotten in the shed, this year, I left them longer outside to dry out, hope this is the fix.
I did some blanching of the corn, easier outside, I suspect most of the harvest is best done outside, less mess.
