It has been very wet here over the weekend, with a last hurrah for summer. I think we may have received much of our rainfall for all three months in that last weekend! Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it was wet, wet, wet.
And cold! I feel like Autumn snuck in a little early. 🙂 Here are some pictures of the garden this morning, after all the rain.
The greenhouse was fogged up this morning
Raindrops teeter over the asparagus fronds
We have exactly one olive fruit on our 4 year old tree
Pineapple sage makes a cheerful pop of red
This parsnip seed is very soggy!
The first camellia on our row of bushes is just opening
These blackberries were hiding, but not well enough! Nom nom nom!
The fence line reveals how much the chickens can scratch – the side they can’t reach is becoming verdant
This is an up-high view of the orchard “roof”. Yeah, we haven’t done it yet.
Now that Harriet is no longer broody, everyone is friends again.
I found a very tall asparagus shoot (about 80 cm). Still looks like a short tasty one. It wouldn’t be! 🙂
The tomatoes in this bed are starting to look a bit ragged
The Orange tree looks tidy again after pruning off the foliage affected by the citrus leaf miner
Lots of caterpillar and cabbage white moth pest damage to the bok choy plants this week.
This one was so badly affected I fed it to the chooks. Nom nom nom!
