Vege Garden Mid Jan 2012

I havent spent too much time myself working on the vege garden, but Jayin has been hard at it.
Growing a few new things, like Caigua in the Morri house. This year we have bagged the tomatoes, and I have my Basil, Eggplant, Peppers, capsicums, and chillis plus a weird cucumber that doesn't seem to be doing anything but grow leaves with tiny little baby cucumbers?
Been heaps of strawberries since I shifted them into the herb garden, and the raspberries have really taken off this year pushing out the asparagus in the same patch. The logan berries have somewhat died off, but heaps of budding bunches of grapes coming along as well as a loaded cranberry bush.
Rhubarb galore. radishes, carrots, beetroot, all seeded out at 3 week intervals, which is why a bit of the garden is still looking bare. beans snow peas, which only 3 plants grew from seed so might be a bit sparse this year, we are still eating the beans from last year we blanched and froze.
Above pic: made a mistake, bottom plant is scallopini not Caigua, the Caigae is the big vine plant by the door of the morri house.
umm, courgettes too, only one edible size, barbequed it in the weekend. heaps of spuds in the bottom garden grown in the soil and tyres again, the yams in the tyres this year (3 of them) have taken off, so gonna have heaps of those.
One of the fegoa trees have died over winter, and we lost the apricot last year, , so looking at buying another nashi tree.
Not so many cherries this year got the tree wrapped in net, but not ripe yet, seems late this year.
I think thats about it!, oh got quite a few tamarilos again over Spring, and the fig tree out the front has doubled in size, but not so many fruit on it this year, i hope it grows more and maybe puts out more fruit next year.
