Late harvest

Cleared up the last of the summer vegetables today. It was quite a haul.


The big tomato

Our tomatoes have been the star of our summer garden. Of all the varieties we planted this year, the oxhearts have been outstanding. This afternoon we picked this wopper, weighing in at 485 grams or roughly 1 pound in the old money.


This year we have grown some raspberries! Yes, we are still surprised that we get any fruit as our canes are growing in a very large pot and even being next to the tap they don’t get sufficient water to produce a mass of fruit.

However this year Mother Nature has taken a hand by providing above average rainfall in November which has kicked along the fruit production. The November rainfall in our part of Canberra was double our monthly average!

We still only get a tiny amount of fruit compared to those whose plants are in the ground, but we plan to enjoy our harvest anyway.
