Amazing! I have 2 red tomatoes! AND…. I am eating my own lettuce! This is today’s photo hot off the press. The others are from a couple of days ago.
There are quite a few small green tomatoes on the bush – I thought the frost might have finished off those flowers…but, no…. plenty more to come.
Cabbages not ready yet but chives and young kale leaves have found their way to my table.
Must grow more stuff now that spring is only 3 weeks away. Also have some partially formed strawberries – would have planted more if I’d known how successful the venture would be.
The wire cover has been essential. The possums nibble off any leaves that are foolish enough to stray through the wire – there’d be nothing left growing without the cage. I might have to refine the design for the next one. It’ll need to be bigger for a start.
Must be off to have a very late lunch which includes my very own tomatoes, lettuce and chives. Toodle-oo!
They look so healthy and delicious. Well done! It is always nice to eat what one has grown.
Thanks. They really are doing well. I’ll have to expand the operation a bit – grow more tomatoes, for example – when I have the time!
They look great Mary! surprising the possums haven’t got them!
I built the wire enclosure specifically to keep the possums away. Otherwise I’d have NO crop left by now.
Thanks..it’s so amazingly satisfying to eat veg from your own garden.
