They look really healthy Lyn.

I can't really grow much at this time of year because of the heavy frosts we get. But I do have a good crop of mandarins and some oranges. And I still have some chillis.
Our Oranges are beautiful and Sweet the Mandarins are sour not a good season for them. Thank you...

You've obviously worked hard in your veggie garden Lyn, well done, I've never seen Black Russian tomatoes before, we must grow different varieties over here, I don't have a garden as such where I live now but my Mum and I are keeping my Dad's veg garden going in memory of him, you're doing great and I'm sure your Dad is keeping an eye on your potatoes, I've no doubt they will be a success as well :)
Thank you Pete... That is so nice of your mum and you to keep the veggie garden going for your dad that is wonderful... What veggies are you growing..

I thought I'd grow some potatoes to show my dad that I haven't forgotton how to grow them they haven't come up yet only planted them yesterday.. I'll post photos when they are up... I miss my father a lot I am planting them cause I wanted to do something he use to like doing.....

Here is a link to the Black Russian Tomatoes...

What a gorgeous little garden! I love it ;) Your Dad is surely very proud that you're carrying on what he taught you.
I have a garden too, we have onions and potatoes and carrots, we also have some chives and basil as well as tomatoes and a big squash plant!
Home grown veggies are wonderful, good job Lyn :)

Thank you for sharing your garden with us :D

Thank you so much Cathy... I just played at a concert a couple of months ago I was going to post it on youtube for a little while and then Make it private I was going to let Deb here me... I also play the keyboard and as you said the piano to. The only thing i can't do is sing I wish I could would love to...I love doing my slideshows I also do tatting hand made lace but I havent done that for a while but I'll be getting back to it again... Would you like to see my concert.oh would you like to have a DVD I'll send you one you will have to give me your address......

Well done, Lyn! Those home-grown veggies taste so much better than store bought :)
Thank you Dee... Oh yes the cabbage is so sweet different to the store..

Very nice,Lyn!:)
Thank you Gabby...

It is great to see you planting a garden. If we let corporate farms do this, we will loose a connection to our earth and Our ancestors who were so skillful in so many ways that we now pay companies to do. Blessings, Jo Ann:p
Thank you JoAnn.... Maybe you can try your own garden...

Great looking garden Lyn. Black Russian is one of my favorites for making tomato sauce. They are just right with the acid/sweet taste. One of my new faves the last few years for slicing and eating is the Green zebra tomato, another heirloom tomato. Hope all goes well with the potatoes :).

Lyn my oranges are lovely and sweet too. But the variety I grow would not do well in Bundaberg as they need at least 2 or 3 frosts to make them sweet. You would be growing Valencia Oranges where I grow Washington Navel.
Sorry Kate Mum said we are growing the Washington Navel we are not growing Valencia Oranges..
Mum said the Washington Navel grows really well here our Oranges are really really sweet not sour. I'll take a photo to show you and put it here.....

I didn't think that the Washington Navels would do well up there as you would not get any frost. I love the Washington Navel they have so much flavour compared to the Valencia. Lovely healthy tree Lyn. And the beetroot looks good too.

Wow I didn't know that you grew all these types of produce, Lyn! This must keep you very busy all day. If I live near you I'd be stealing your oranges and tomatoes, but Indi would not be happy if I did.:p

Thank you Nick... You have to beat me to the oranges first. Indi gets oranges as a treat.. But I think I'll share some with you we had heaps on this year....
