Because the temperatures are heating up at the moment all the tomatoes are ripening at once and the vines are suffering. John made some tomato relish and I'll do some pasta sauce to freeze. We've told the neighbours to come and take what they want and I may even take some to work. I hate seeing any go to waste.
I had to chase the ladies out of the rockmelon (cantaloupe) bed. They are powering ahead and I'm hopeful of getting fruit this year - but not if little brown hens dig them out.
They are setting flowers already. Thanks for your advice Tammy. They are getting lots of food and water and seem to be thriving.
Even the justica is starting to flower.
All the paths need weeding.
I trimmed back branches on one of the callistemons along our fenceline and found the bromeliad I attached to it a couple of years ago had multiplied. This plant proves broms are easy care. It has had no attention.
Speaking of making more plants.
I need to take the pups of these. Not sure whether to just leave tham as a giant clump or plant a few in other parts of the garden. At this time of the year I would rather be working in the garden than anything else I can think of.
