And tons of pumpkin fattening up under their huge green leaves. Then there are the raised beds, with the best tomatoes I have ever grown. There are 10 different varieties, mostly heirlooms and they are loaded. We are quite a bit behind you girls in NSW and I have just picked my first tomato. It is from a variety called 'Silver Fir', a Russian variety. I have never picked tomatoes this early before. Mostly it is February and late February at that. It must have something to do with the weather, but also I selected for cold climate varieties. Also I have more basil than I can cope with and Florence fennel. The berries are coming into the house by the bucket load and being packed into the freezer. It's a busy time of year for us.
