Oof! I'm super proud that my lemonade tree is fruiting for the first time. I hope I can find a picture of it, as I'm currently on holidays, but I'll aim to upload it as soon as I can. It makes me so happy, haha

Righto got round to taking a photo but they're not as satisfying as in person and having that accomplished feeling!

My row of fruit trees all fed, composted and mulched ft. Lulu the pooch. The netting around them to stop the sheep chewing away. The close up is of my Black Doris tree with it's singular fruit on it I'm SO excited - they're my favourite plums ever! The third pic is of my first Birdies tall raised bed where I've planted 8 tomatoes and 6 cos lettuce all grown from seed and mulched with some strawberry straw too - excuse the random pots of tomatoes and capsicum they're just hanging out there till I whack em in the ground later today ☺️

Been able to get the Best Deal ever 🔥♥️
A trailer full of the most beautiful kompost/horsemanure including a mount of worms 🪱🪱🪱 in exchange for a plant (chili, raspberry, lavender) and a bit of help.

just mowed the last time until spring yesterday and used it to mulch my pointed cabbage. Its still growing very well for the temperatures 🌡 which get already down to 1 °C at night, so we might get the first ground frost 🥶

not right now... way too cold for them. Ask me again next summer😅 but I haven't seen netting on any of the neighboring Plants... so I guess there're not as many🤔 We'll try and see.... but in any case I'm planning with som sacrificial plants. Cause I think those cabbage white butterflys are quite beautifull 😍
