Wicking beds

Peter has been testing out a new system for growing our lettuce, spinach 
and other goodies that the bugs like to eat.
The wicking beds use less water and are
very useful when growing in soil that is clay and compacted by bamboo roots.

lettuce and bok choy have loved it.

Produce this Season

This season we have had a good supply of cabbages, radish, kale, lettuce,
(cauliflower didn't work with the heritage variety)
herbs, zucchini and squash...

spring onions...

corn is growing...

we have an abundance of tomato plants...

carrots doing well...

In the orchard...
the mulberry tree has given us enough to freeze, blueberries have supplied a handful 
of fruit in their first year, pomegranate has new fruit starting, lime, pomelo, blood orange, passionfruit, mandarins, feijoa, acerelo are all growing stronger with the help
of the chickens.
