Garden happenings

Passion flower

With the spring weather has come a few changes in the garden. The most exciting for me was spotting the first flower on our young passionfruit vine (planted in mid-2007) last week. I'm looking forward to a small crop of fruit in the new year.

The peas are also starting to flower and the tomato plants, bean vines and leafy greens (silverbeet, spinach, kale, rocket, mizuna, pak choy) are coming along nicely. I'm hoping for a good crop of summer veges this year.

Passionfruit flowers are so amazing! We planted a few wee things out on the weekend. Looking forward to them too!

Well you've cleared something up for me- The purple flowered vine growing on my fence is not a passionfruit after all! I shall have to plant one. Thanks again for the cool tote bag
