In the garden–Spring 2014

Not a lot of veggies planted at the moment. It has been an unusually warm spring so far. This week we had one day that got up to at least 36°C. That's more common for January than October.

Globe artichoke
A globe artichoke that Narelle planted last year has shot up again.

Lemonade fruit
The lemonade tree has been been very productive again. There's still a few fruit left. We've made quite a lot of juice this year.

Cabbages
These cabbages are growing well, though the cabbage moths (well actually their caterpillars) are doing their best to get in first.

Tiny lime fruit
We planted a lime tree a couple of years ago. It doesn't like our cold winters, but now the weather has warmed up it has put on a fresh lot of leaves. I'm hoping this tiny fruit will stay on the tree and grow to full size!

The roses are having their first bloom after winter. They are looking very colourful.

Lots of lavender and bearded iris are also flowering. The bees really like the lavender.

Plenty of weeding to do at this time of year too – but I'm not going to take photos of those!
