Planting for Summer, the Boom Season

This season looks to be a cracker, I can say now that I have the most fruit on my tress since planting them, I have suffered some curly leaf here and there but not enough to stop bud set.
its early days and I am yet to net my fruit trees, every time I hear a cocky swooping overhead, my heart races. It’s going to get Hot, like real hot and I might lose a lot due to that intense 40 odd degree days. I am using my Gray water every day on my fruit trees and about to get some loads of sow manure and put all around them.

I have the veggie garden going full noise, full of corn, tomato and potato, with smatterings of silver beet, pumpkin, zucchini, chilli, cucumber, and squash still to grow. I am more connected this year, we are staying home to reap the harvest and my intention to eat 3 times per week, plant-based meals, I might actually us some of my Veg, instead of giving a lot of it away, which I still intend doing.

I have been busy collecting wood from everywhere I can, mostly done with a good friend of mine, hard work and sharing the spoils is good for the soul and cements friendships

Full loaded apricot tree, they seem to do better when its drier
