New pictures

I havent put pictures on the blog for a while so here are some of what we have been up to in the garden. This first one is the new avacardo trees we planted on the weekend. We have covered them with the shade cloth to protect them form the frosts we get here. This is the grape vine after my dad pruned it.

This is the tuscan kale growing in our raised garden beds. Notice the frost, it was very cold this morning.

One of my broccoli, ready to be harvested. Yummo!

My new mandarine tree, it has two kinds of mandarines grafted on it, so it will crop over a long time.

see ya

Hello Angela
I take it thats a dam in front of your avocado trees - doesn't look too good.
Are you very hard up for water? We've had plenty coming down from the sky this past week in Melbourne and thankfully some even fell in the catchment areas and is filtering through to storage dams.
The frost on that kale is very similar to what we had this morning. Nasty Cold brrrrr.
Take care

Hello Cathy,
yes that's a dam in front. We have had a bit of rain but the ground was so dry it soaked it all up. Hopefully now the dam will start to fill.
