Update for the end of November

Well time is marching on and it's nearly the end of November already. So what's been happening here? G has been out mowing the grass, weed eating around the young trees and mulching hedges and trees, so that all looks a lot tidier. He's been planting some more trees (including pohutukawa along our roadside fence) that we've had sitting around the place too.

I've been having a bit of down time, with one thing or another but I have been gradually repotting quite a few pot plants, a job I'd put off for far too long. A few more to go and they should all be a bit happier (and nicer to look at!). Photos to come.

The tomatoes ('Brandywine Pink') are coming along well, as are the potatoes, and we even have some fruit on our little currant bushes (although the white currant has turned out to be red!)

And we're munching our way through strawberries, artichokes and broccoli. YUM!

Are you incredibly dry where you are? We've had not a single drop of rain since before I got back from Scotland, it keeps saying it might,coderi then nothing. We're irrigating the veggies every night and running around with watering cans every evening.
The grass ( thankfully only in the garden for now) is beginning to go brown! Never seen it this dry at this time of year before.

I love your pohutakawa planting!

Yes it has been very dry although we're getting a few drops of rain now (not heavy though). Hasn't been too bad for us as we have mulched all of our garden beds, although I have wondered up with watering cans several times for some of the smaller plants.
