Mr Duck Herder did a "highly commended" job looking after the garden while I was away. You know, I think he is getting better at being a tenderer of the fruits and vines and fields and feathered ones. Many thanks my darling.
My neighbour and I have been busy bottling plums (from the biggest hippy) and rhubarb and making jam. I have rows and rows of burgundy and green bottles lining the pantry.
We are eating nashis (hmmmmm crunch) and nectarines (aaaaah slurp). Look at THESE little beauties.
Have you ever seen such beautiful colours? I think this is a goldmine or something similar - yellow, fragrant cling stone.
And my pride and joy - All this fruit from my little two years in the ground seedling. This one is a white fleshed free stone. Some folks don't think nectarines make very pretty trees but I disagree. I love their long elegant leaves.
And here are the tomatoes. Lots of green. Not a lot of red yet! And a lovely view across to Mt Stromlo.
And here is another view of my plot at the community garden.
Started digging up the taties today.
Do you know what I love? I love my garden.
