Over to the cool shaded Almond Area.

Baby veg are everywhere:
Sunrise Tomatoes,
Golden Nugget Pumpkin,
Lebanese Mini Cucumber,
Apple Cucumber.

The bees are loving all the flowers in the garden:
Nasturtiums,
Motherwort,

Lemon Verbena.

Even this little Grasshopper evil
isn't doing any major damage.

You'll notice in the Harvest Tally that it seems to be The Year of the Zucchini already...I've been making Chocolate Zucchini Cakes, Zucchini Pancakes and Doc is grating them and adding to his Pasta Sauce and Bolognaise Sauce. Please feel free to Email Me your favourite Zucchini Recipes coz we've still got lots to come yet!
(If you do make sure to put "recipes" in the subject area or it might go through as spam rolleyes )

The first Trees For Life seeds Acacia papyrocarpa and Melaleuca lanceolata continue to germinate as I prepare to plant the Acacia calamifolia tomorrow (they are soaking now).

Harvest Tally:
Doesn't include Greens fed to the chooks or herbs picked for use in the kitchen for cooking or tea making.
Also we've been grazing out in the garden...just can't help testing those Apricots and Cherries as they get closer to being ripe! redface
