In The Garden during February
Last month of Summer sees one picking and preserving for the 12 months ahead. From the orchard and vegie garden, we find huge amounts of fruit and vegies, some of which are below.
Such a cool summer, the best I can remember down here in South Gippsland, especially for the dairy farmer, We still have lush green pastures and the crops of turnip and millet planted for a dry Summer are thriving.
But back to the fresh fruit and vegies. I find I have 11 plum trees. Whoops. Included are Satsuma, green and yellow gage, Angelina, Damson and other plums, names which don’t come to mind. Not quite sure how many apple trees, some of which are Gravenstien, Golden and Red Delicious, Abas, Pink Lady, etc.
