The first pick ( of 2 )( 2nd one will be in January ) for export of our avocados got done last week. R drove the tractor, I ground picked and 3 hydraladas drivers picked all the high up avocados.
We only picked 20 bins on this pick.
We were reasonably pleased with the % pack out we got. Some fruit had the scars from hail damage a year ago, but other than that the fruit looked good. Do you like avocados? They are very good for you.
One day I got a little quilting done on my finished hexagons. The machine is working well after it's service ( still no new tray ) .
This is the back of a hexagon. the pattern shows up better there. It is a basic petal shape. Each petal pointing out to the tip of the points on the hex.
This Christmas fabric was suitable to use in my garden theme, so I plan to have quite a patch of poinsettias in it. I like the paler colours of the fabric.
There has been so much to do in the orchard and the garden with amazing growth.
I have been replanting this area around the waterlily bowl. It is far brighter than it shows here. With the addition of compost the plants are doing quite well.
Elsewhere my David Austin rose is flowering well and my new one called Grace has 7 buds so can't wait to see if I like it.
