The rocket went feral

This morning's harvest from the vege patch. Zucchini, baby squash, carrots, snow peas and snap peas, and tomatoes. I'm thrilled with the carrots. They're growing straight. I must finally have their soil right. Usually my carrots look deformed.

The tomatoes are doing better this year than ever before. Quite a few are ready to pick.
The romas won't be ripe for a while yet, but they're laden as well. I predict there may be a fair amount of spagetti sauce being made soon.

I had to chop back and remove some of the rocket. It was threatening to take over the entire garden bed. Underneath I found some very sad strawberry runners. The strawberries even had fruit on them - poor neglected things. That will be the next job - planting out the runners.

The passionfruit vine is producing well. It must have heard me say I was going to chop it out too,  because it's even flowering - in the middle of winter. It's a vine that self-seeded in the compost and is growing up over a palm tree. I will have to remove it but while it's producing such great fruit it can stay a while longer.
