again, a great dearth of regular updates

But an abundance of pictures:

Plums, of which only one has really survived.

Cherries, all of which survived and not one of which fell to fruit fly - unlike the nectarines...

Corn, tomatoes, and squash up the back - this bed is doing amazing now:

Passionfruit - it just sat there all last year, but now, all of a sudden, it's decided to start growing!

Beans. I think I mixed up the bush beans with the runners, and the result is actually not a bad thing - a whole bunch of low-down bushes, and just a handful that are reaching for the sky!

Potatoes; I dug out half the bed - back by the fence - and have replaced it with a few corn sprouts. The rest will be in the bed next door:

Raspberries and tomatoes:

Have to work out where these are going to go next year...

Central bed: still holding the leeks and the remnants of the swiss chard, which we haven't touched at all.

I need to stop and think about what I'm planting, where I'm planting it, how it's going to grow and whether I can persuade my sister to eat it. (The key thing in growing the garden.) Ironically, this year, the fruit (which we would have eaten) has largely failed, while things like beans and suchlike - not our usual fare - are doing spectacularly. It's all a question of trying to work out what goes where and which grows how well.

2016, the year of better planning!
