Gardening 2013

Postby punkin » Sun Sep 15, 2013 1:45 pm

Spring is here in Australia at last..Yippppeeee

It's been a very mild winter really, we have nothing to complain about, but we picked our first feed of Aspapagus last week and the hop bines are up.

Figs are on the tree and leaves are following, the apples are flowering and the first corn crop has shot.

Great time of year.

Coffee cherry starting to get ripe here. Pineapple season winding down. Avocados all over the place.

Round here you need to keep your car locked or someone will put some avocados in there.

Late/ end of summer here and we have white figs ready to eat on a daily basis. They are just delightful.

We have so many figs on the trees here that I am considering dehydrating them this year. Loads of green ones still coming on too..

My 2013 garden is about canned. Supper tonight was the last tomatoes and okra joined into making a gumbo. Our Jalapenos and Anaheim peppers are making their last stands before frost.

Wish yall down under a good year on your gardening efforts. It's time to break open a jar a remember how it tasted fresh while enjoying the second best. Fresh canned veggies...

Still picking fruit from the lemonade tree in full flower. We only go about 3 months without usable fruit each year from this and it crops hundreds of lemonades.

Punkin that top pic has got to be my favorite first crops of the year,those spears look great!

I'll spare a cuss... I loves me some wrapped in bacon and grilled.

The okra is still growing, but I have all I care for already put back. Plus it is so tall that I am having to bend it over to cut. I'm only 6'1"... Frost is due in about a month by the calendar.

It's time to plant some salad and cole crops. Mustard, turnip greens and chard. Kale, radish, beets and such.

You are too far north brother stick..

Use row cover and tunnel houses to extend our season when needed around here. The cole crops and such live in the landscape though.

I've been working with season extending methods for a bit now. We like our fresh veggies and want to be able to provide them to others.
