Christmas is sneaking up...

and everything is growing like mad, especially after the nice rain period we've just had. The capsicum plants are splitting into threes and flowering nicely. The pavng stones near their roots warm the soil as well as keeping it moist and bird free. I have them around the tomato plants as well.

Nice harvest of early garlic and a couple of wonderful purple potatoes that came up from plantings last year and must have been missed at harvest then.

Trimmed the roses and a bird's nest came down

The tomatoes are getting bigger!

Been watering the beans, capsicums, tomatoes and potatoes with Thrive fruiting and flowering liquid fertilizer every weekend. Seems to work well so far...
