With summer here the garden is looking pretty healthy. The pumpkins have gone crazy again and are needing some solid control to keep them from invading the onions. The potatoes have done their thing and from initial excavations it seems we have a good load of them ready for digging. The strawberries are fruiting happily this year and we are getting a lot of new ones off each week which has been great. The trees are all starting to pull away now. Some needed a bit of pruning to get rid of the wood killed in the frosts but all have recovered. The feijoa has put on flowers already and I noticed we have a few surviving black boy peaches on the trees. So far things are getting settled nicely and with a bit of luck next year with be quite productive.
