Ronny, the rennette apple tree looks like giving us more than 1 apple for the first time
The corn is growing on one of the upper terraces:
On a separate plot a small experimental bed of special Greek corn, which is supposed to be particularly drought resistant. I was given the seeds by Gaia's Hope from Greece.
The kale is holding its own above the encroaching weeds.
One of the repaired terraces, although narrower than before, now supports multi-coloured Swiss chard.
The new cold frame is stuffed full of lettuce including the delicious Mike's red lettuce and oakleaf lettuce as well as some raddishes and mooli.
The top of one of the new supporting tyre walls is now sprouting courgettes.
The old cold frame that had ended up on the edge of a cliff face after the landslides is now secure again and has some broccoli growing in it amongst other things.
Two tipis that will support Buenos Aires beans supplied to me by a dear gardening friend in France. The are apparently prolific climbing beans producing flat, tender green beans.
My first try at scorzanera is showing this year inside a deep bottomless bucket.
Al the almond tree is promising his first yield this year, whilst Capone is still a little shy.
Stud the kiwi is brimming with flower buds, but unfortunately his harem is not following suit (he's called Stud because he's the male amongst the females. Unfortunately he doesn't bear fruit, he's only there to pollinate the females,,,)
...and finally the sugar snap peas will soon be ready! Hmmmmm!
On the minus side, we have a vastly reduced broad bean harvest this year with many of the plants buried under the landslides. On the wild food front, it's elderflower time! Making a new batch of elderflower champagne every few days and eating elderflower fritters. The joys of spring!
