A few photos from around the vegie patch
Chinese cabbage, turnips and shallots growing rapidly in autumn. Coriander in the pot in the foreground; fast-growing mustard spinach bottom right.
Baby beetroot seedlings (right) and carrots (left).
The baby beetroot leaves look nice in salads.
Quite a few vegies produce nice flowers, such as these broad bean flowers.
My first go at growing brussels sprouts has gone well. Every seed sown sprouted, and I'll have to thin out seedlings soon, to make space for the adult plants.
Here's a charming photo taken by my wife, of Mr and Mrs Orchard Butterfly making babies. Here, they're in our potted curry leaf tree. As an experiment I planted some of the berries from the tree in a pot. Every one of them sprouted, so it's likely that a curry leaf tree could be an environmental weed. But the orchard butterflies don't care about that!
