My Lime and Lemon are going great (new shoots and flower buds), and the lettuce and brussels sprout are coming along nicely. Also in shot is the corn salad, red mizuna, endive and chicory ... Go the dense gardening!
Okay, for the new purchases .... hehehe.
I have a Jostaberry on the way from Diggers. This was the blurb that came with it
"If you like Blackcurrants and Gooseberries, but the small thorny shrubs aren't to your liking, then the Jostaberry is for you. This thornless hybrid has a complicated lineage including both gooseberries and currants, resulting in a handsome shrub that produces marble-sized fruits in mid summer to enjoy with blueberries, raspberries and blackberries."
And this one sounded great, as I LOVE pineapple, but begrudge paying up to $7 per pine. Seeds on their way from Cornucopia.
"Cossack Pineapple are a very easily grown, sprawling, very productive plant. It bears delicious berries that are encased in a papery husk and have a flavour reminiscent of pineapplePlants grow to 50cm but with bushy spreading lateral branches which choke out weeds. Fruit is ripe when it falls to the ground. Fruits are delicious fresh, as well as making terrific pies and jams and will ripen from mid summer until frost."
Looks like a gooseberry doen't it?!
