It was a shockingly cold day yesterday, with gale-force winds and plummeting temperatures. But in between the rain showers, after Dr Phil had finished, we went outside and planted 4 Ballerina apples and 1 dwarf Pink Lady apple.
He looks so much like his father in this photo… Sssshhh… don’t tell him…. He also looks a bit like my brother too, which is strange because those two guys don’t look anything like each other. Apart from both being male humans.
Now he just looks like himself again.
We put the Ballerinas up against the south fence, where they’ll get all the sun and won’t shade anything else out. Naturally there were a couple of tree stumps in exactly the wrong place, so one of them ended up in the left-hand vegie bad as a companion for the Ballerina apple we planted last year. Just the olive and the 2 plums to go!
A while ago I placed an order with Diggers. I went in with Mick, who’s a member, and because we bought so much we got two free plants. He kept the pomegranate and I chose the comfrey. Here it is. Fine, lusty looking specimen, isn’t it?
Speaking of lusty looking specimens, remember the rhubarb I was given when I went to the garden tour which snapped in half while I was driving home? It’s now shooting another leaf.
Isn’t life grand?
