I had huge plans to bake most of the day today....but on rising this morning, I found I just may have overdone it yesterday......I did overdo it yesterday and found myself looking for pain killers in the early hours of the morning. I'll get over it...tomorrow will be the baking day instead.....I will still get to bake...it may just take a few extra days to complete everything on my list....
A few weeks back, I was discussing with another local gardener about Choko's not flowering...well guess what? My choko plant is producing fruit....I am so pleased as this is the main fruit I use to make pickles, that and jam melon, which I didn't find this year....
I have yet to grow the jam melon, due to space......or lack of .......
I think I will put in pumpkin this coming September as well as my Loofah vine. I have to try again to grow Loofah..Last year was less than perfect...losing all flowers in bad weather.
Here are some more photos of what is still growing in my garden.
|Chinese Cabbage are doing well...Although I shared some with the rats.|
|Comfrey & Radishes|
|These are Poor Mans Beans...they are like a rough prickly looking snow pea...|
and need to be cooked before eating.
These have been very slow to grow...and still are not flowering.
|Climbing Butter Beans...went mouldy after all the rain.|
|Parsnip seeds are up.|
|Stevia....pick it when you think it is lush...like I should have.|
Now look at it...Yuck...too far gone to dehydrate now.
|Stevia...on a brighter note though...it looks like I will get seed.|
|Carrots are finally up.|
|Climbing Spinach...see the one next to it...|

The front lemon is looking like it is turning yellow.
