Next year I'm thinking I may be changing the way I present this blog, perhaps just a monthly round up (might be more achievable) and possibly more photos than text.
|The first of the Early Red peaches|
Anyhow at the moment in the garden we have growing:
Yard long Beans
Zucchini (harvesting now)
|Jocky cap flower|
In the polytunnels we've got:
Curry leaf plant
All doing well although I did have a few aphids attack my eggplants, the ladybirds took care of those though! The coffee plants are ones that were planted outside but had not thrived. They are now doing really well although still a long way off producing berries!
We also had our large heifer butchered in November, and now have plenty of delicious beef in the freezer. As she was part Jersey the fat is very yellow, the meat is still just as tasty however!
|Our own beef fresh from the butcher.|
|The Indian garden - very pretty|
|The rose garden was spectacular in full bloom|
|The Italian garden - fabulous pergola with grape vines|
Meanwhile our excursions are closer to home, namely walking the dog! Not that walking the dog is a bind though as we get to enjoy the beautiful Kaipara harbour only a few minutes walk from home.
