What a magic day in Sydney for the beginning of the Easter Long Weekend.
After taking some advice from my horticultural wizard friend Cherie I did some hand pollinating of the male and female zucchini flowers.
.. the result of the menage a trois! Well-endowed isn’t he?
The zucchini plants are spreading triffid-like….
The strawberries and nasturtiums lap up the sunshine
Mint, basil and rainbow silverbeet
Last of my autumn plantings.These peas sound delicious. You can apparently eat the pods as well.
I fashioned a climbing tepee for them.
They’ll be ready to harvest in 4 weeks.
I also planted some carrots and spring onions
The plants will spend Easter on their own. We’re off to Mudgee in country New South Wales to stay at the Gundooee
organic wagyu beef farm run by our friends Rob and Nita Lennon.
