The rocket went feral
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.
