52 Shades of My Veggie Patch: Week 29

Standard

Autumn 2013

I’m trying to get on top of my pruning early this year. Last year I left it late. Really late. I think some of the issues in my ornamental garden might be explained by late pruning (ahem, Bloodgrass).

So the raspberries have been chopped and I took the netting of my tomatoes so they could catch the last of the sun before we descend into pure winter gloom. There are still heaps of tomatoes on there, though.

My little capsicums are coming along although a lot of them are chilli shaped. Must be the variety I bought. I can’t remember really. I think one of the plants is from seed, hopefully it is a chocolate capsicum, there are a heap that I bought as seedlings after the failure of all my seed growing efforts, and then one plant (the one that has a normal looking capsicum on it) was a more advanced plant I got a few weeks ago when I thought my other plants weren’t ever going to increase in size or produce fruit.

My strawberries are fruiting again! How bizarre. This time the strawbs are marginally bigger. My children are still picking them and eating them in one swift motion.

I guess you could say all is good in the patch 🙂
