Loquats from MY TREE, grown from a seed! I've been waiting 7 years for this moment!

My young loquat tree has some of the biggest fruit on it I've ever seen on one. Wow. I hope I can beat the birds to some of these.

The blueberries are starting to bloob. I think I need to move the pot today to a spot that's not directly under a tree occupied by nesting birds if I want to get some myself.

I can't even recall the circumstances now, but sometime in the last year I found an acorn on the ground and shoved it in a pot on a whim. Now apparently I have to figure out what to do with a fucking oak tree.

The old lemon tree, which I cut back basically to a stump as a kind of ultimatum, seems to have chosen life.

My first ever midyim berries! Just a tiny amount from some baby plants but I guess they like the spot I put them in!

Tasted one for the first time and was not disappointed. Read descriptions of them as "blueberry with a hint of cinnamon" and that's pretty fair!

Just realised that I shouldn't have trusted autocomplete to fill out for me in the last post.

This is my first time growing turnips and I honestly had no idea they produced little seed pods like this! Apparently they're quite good to eat but I really want the seeds this season so maybe I'll try one next year.

I had planned to pull down and rebuild this garden bed this year, but the leftover scraggly bits of silverbeet have spring back to life, burdened with glorious purpose. There are also a couple of really healthy looking garlic shoots in there and I apparently missed some potatoes. I think I'll leave it alone, something's obviously going right.

A hell of a lot of apples fell off the tree into this thing, maybe that's the secret. :awesome:

The first dozen corn seedlings are in the ground! I have a bunch more sprouting a week or so behind these, in case any fail and I need to fill gaps in the nice grid, heh. I was worried they wouldn't have had time to build up enough of a root system in the tray but these little champs went crazy.

Popped the first pumpkin in there too. Fingers crossed!

Let's see how they like their forever homes. @plants

My corn seedlings are going nuts, I thought I'd have another week or so before I had to think about planting them but they'll hit the lid of the tray soon.

Guess I've got some digging to do tomorrow!

I have second generation corn growing from kernels I saved from the last crop!

Stepped up the sophistication of my seedling nursery. I think I've got a couple of Lilly Pilly seeds breaking through already.

One of my tiny midgem berry plants is flowering! I did not expect to see this so soon.

I hope I get a piece of fruit, I've never actually tasted one and I'm really keen to see if the descriptions (which sound amazing) are accurate.

When you decide to just let the pumpkins growing out of the compost pile go wild over the back fence. @plants
