Our corn is cobbing up and we wait patiently for them to ripen. This bed also has some volunteer tomatoes and potatoes growing, along with nasturtiums and sunflowers (from the poultry grain).
Rhubarb is slowly getting bigger and stronger. This was a cutting from a friend's garden and apparently it only grows red stalks! It's pretty tasty, I have even found a rhubarb eating buddy in the youngest..she loves it!
Pumpkins are starting to form small fruit. The one above is actually a volunteer that popped up from the compost - no idea what variety it is...
|Pumpkin - Qld Blue|
|The bean party - nothing like a bamboo trellis and some rain to get the action happening!|
Dwarf butter bean, a dwarf purple variety and I could've sworn I planted some Blue Lakes, but I guess they're a little late coming to the party...
|Zucchini - Gold Rush|
|Potatoes in the greenhouse - the latest I've tried growing them...we'll see!|
|Tigerella tomatoes - a great all rounder!|
And finnnallly, we have tomatoes-a-ripening! Again, mostly volunteers, which I'm not complaining about - they seem to be hardier and more vigorous than the pampered seedlings I always try to get going. These ones are Tigerellas - so abundant and a nice size too - not too big and not too small..good in a salad and also big enough to slice for sandwiches. Red fig tomatoes are also ripening, which look like a little bell, and slowly slowly the Romas are coming along..
