This is the last of the peaches. We have eaten them raw and I have poached and frozen some and given others away. ( most develop rots within 48hours of picking ) So work fast!
The William bon Chretien pears ( also known as Bartlett pears in NZ ) have been prolific but I picked this final lot as the wasps and birds were making them disappear too fast. After a short while these will begin to change to yellow and are very juicy and sweet. They are nice raw or cooked.
Lots of pulling out of vege plants that have done their thing. Tomatoes particularly. I am clearing all plants from the unsightly old poly house. R is going to pull it down and replace with a smaller structure.
In the flower garden, which is just hanging in there because of watering restrictions, I am planting a few new daffodils and freesias.
At the moment we are getting really high tides.
So far since we have lived here the jetty has never been underwater but apparently it has happened ;the neighbours have photos.
