What happens in spring

Plants get all excited and grow!

Sweet corn.

A second plot of broad beans, with a few marigolds peeping out from the bean foliage.

The fig tree that's been in a pot for four years.  Immediately after it went into the ground it looked awfully sick and dropped the leaves and fruit it had.  Now look!  There are least seven little figs growing there. 

This is the second plot of butter beans.  There have been enough to give great handfuls to the neighbours and they're still coming.

Potatoes.  Add to that beetroot, peas, snow peas, tomatoes, lettuces, onions, spring onions and silverbeet.  Yet to go in are capsicums, rosella, more lettuces, green beans, pumpkins, cucumbers and whatever else we can fit in.  We are rather running out of space.
