Around this time of year we are busy mulching and fertilising the Finger Limes, Davidson Plums, Lilli Pilli as well as our garlic ready for a hot summer. Ian and Jemah will also be pruning the Finger Limes so we can get a great crop to sell both at the markets and some restaurants, these will also be available online.
Ian has been busy harvesting Gooseberries ready for our jam (in limited supply). The Gooseberries are a tart yet sweet fruit that come wrapped in a paper like lantern, very tasty.
Around September Ian and Jemah will be planting Rosellas
(Hibiscus sabdariffa) ready for harvesting next year. These have a
flavour that is combination of raspberry and rhubarb.
Our Russian garlic looking green, healthy and happy.
Davidson Plum Trees full of new flowers. The bees have been amazing, so many of them. YEAH!
