Lots of surprises after being away for 5 days. The daikons have suddenly become the enormous size that they sell them at the supermarket. Onions have substantially increased in bulb size. I guess that’s what happens when you are away for a bit during December.

I feel like there is a bit of a delay between gardens in warmer areas and cooler ones. Just a few weeks ago I was jealous of all the zucchinis everyone was harvesting. Now it looks like, if all the female blossoms deliver, we will have a big courgette feast for Christmas!

The tomatoes, pumpkins, capsicums, beans and ‘The One Cucumber That Did Not Die’ are all catching up and starting to flower.

Cauliflowers have basically taken over a quarter of the garden. Never thought I’d be harvesting an emergency cauliflower in the middle of a fancy-dress dinner (hence the photo) but here we are. The potato patch is also threatening to invade the prime real estate of which pumpkins are supposed to be in charge. Before we get our own home (hopefully next year) it’s every plant for themselves in this tight space!

It’s all (finally) happening!
