My kale is coming on and I have been picking leaves for my green smoothies. My sprouting broccoli has been flowering so I think I am going to have to pick it quite small to avoid this. The brussel sprouts are growing well although they have a way to go before they will be producing anything.
We are getting lots of Cherry tomatoes but I have to say the other tomatoes are doing very little.
The apple tree on the roadside is looking good and the birds are starting to take an interest so it must be time to pick some.
I sowed a couple of rows of Broad Beans the week before Easter. My Mum always said they have to be in before Anzac Day so I am to achieve that. I will probably put some more in as Miss 6 likes them and they freeze well too if we end up with too many.
As to my jobs from last month
- Clear more tussock grasses for compost area and berry/currant garden. All tussocks from this area are gone.
To do list for May
- Weed and mulch vege beds
- Sow some peas and more broad beans
- Harvest medlar and leave them to blet
