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.

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!

Looks like my little loquat tree that I grew from a seed is about to fruit for the first time!

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

Cornfield 2.0, now with basic irrigation! It's not totally how I want it yet but it'll do for now until I pick up some more hose and connectors. At least I can get the corn seedlings down and not worry about the ground drying out on a hot day.

Now to finish digging it up and get some compost down.

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.

Doing some post-winter clearing up in the garden patch down the back and discovered a secret spherical cucumber hiding in the weeds

Looks like it's not completely ripe. I'll give it a week in some sunlight and see how it goes.

Making an attempt to change my nectarine tree's mind about growing into my neighbour's new guttering.

Dinner tonight will feature this fantastic-looking pumpkin I grew in the back yard. Not sure yet if I want to just straight up roast it or do something a little more special.
