This is my favourite little garden bed just by the back door...with Yellow Pear Tomatoes, Bushy Cucumbers, Casper Eggplant (white), Long Purple Eggplant, Chilli Shake Chillies and a couple of Minette Basil seedlings. It has recently been mulched with sugarcane which has led to a bit of earwig damage but the plants are big enough now to withstand a few holey leaves. I am looking forward to the first harvests from this bed.
The first Zucchinis for the year have been harvested and eaten...
This November is a month I would rather forget. The only positive thing was that we spent a lot of time with all our family...the reason was the negative. Doc's dear, sweet mother lost her battle with Alzheimer's last week. At only 74 years of age it was tragic to watch what this disease did to someone we loved. In many ways her loss is a (very sad) relief.
