The Backyard Farmer – SPRRRRRIIIIIIINNGG!

Well Spring has definitly sprung here in Sydney and I am mucho excited. I love love love being able to grow my own food!  Presently I have Sweet Corn, Zucchini, Boysenberry, Rasperry, Tri Graft Apple, Tri Graft Stone Fruit (Peach, Plum, Nectarine), Lemon, Limes, Rosemary (2 types), Carrot, Basil, Corriander, Leeks, Lettuces, Tomatoes & Chilli’s.  I have a zillion more things to come!!

There has been lots of planting going on…

The fruit trees are in flower…

I’ve even convinced Himself to help me with a teeny little bit of pruning….(lots more to do..see those trees?  They won’t be there for long!! – where’s that chainsaw??)…

Everything looks sad and small right now, however its amazing how fast things grow in this warmer weather…the corn has shot up an inch in 2 days!!!

Happy Harvesting!!!

  1. I’m holding out for the day I have space to grow my own food! It looks like so much fun – not to mention rewarding and delicious!!

    • It most definitly is! There is nothing better than popping out the back for fresh herbs or something to add to your meals. Its also a lot healthier for your grocery bill!

  2. Wont be long and you’ll have lots of gorgeous things to eat. Ithink they always taste better out of the garden!

    • I know – and I can’t wait!!!
      Somehow it never fails to impress people that their dinner was alive in my garden hours before they ate it:)
