A surprise addition to my backyard - mango tree. This one just pop-out of the compost. If I have a greenhouse, it might survive the cold, frosty winter of Melbourne.
Just harvested my very first cherry tomotoes this summer.
We finished our first batch of beans. This is the second batch - you can see the baby beans sprouting out just under the flower.
The eggplants have lots of flowers but I don't have many eggplants. I have noticed that there are not many bees in the backyard this summer. Consider keeping my own bee hive in the backyard.
I thought we didn't have pumpkin this year, next thing I know I have pumpkin popping out everywhere (literally).
Among the bush below, there are two rockmelon plants growing.
Here is a cucumber almost ready for harvest. We have harvested a few of them and stirred fry for dinner. The kids love it.
|Asian vegetable - great for cooking tom-yum soup|
Almost time to make chilli sauce.
|Another species of chilli plant|
This watermelon plant was a real surprise. The seed was mixed in the asian gourd seed pack we bought. Hoping the plant will make it to fruition. No flowers in sight.
|Asian gourd - not flowering yet.|
|Red Russian (planted from the seeds collected from previous season)|
|Carob tree - hasn't it grown?|
