And it is not just the Angel peach - everyone is getting into the act. Here we have the Duck Central orchard - well, part of it anyway. Like I always say, if you want a food forest, you don't need a lot of space, just a lot of trees! Just out of shot is a nectarine, three pears, then two flat peaches, then a peachcot, then another Angel peach, then an apricot, and then Mr Bacon.
So how IS Mr Bacon going? Well, lets just say that -8 frost was a little traumatic for him, but he is going to be OK!
- Black Russian
- Black Krim
- Wapsipicon Peach
Plus a few others from the Burkes Backyard winter tomato packet.
On the eggplant scence we have prosperosa and lunga - both from the Italian Gardener.
And in the capsicum department we have little topepo and cherry time. These are both small, red, sweet ones that only get to about 5 cm.....which might work better in our short summer.
Down at the community garden I have something special - this is an elephant garlic that was given to me by my gardening buddy Anthony. It came from his nanna - Elizabeth Tibbet. She bought it with her when she moved to Australia from England many decades ago, and it has been divided every year and grown continuously since then. And now it is mine too!
Here is the rest of the garlic - this is all Glenlarge.
I like spring.
