Our first produce since returning from holiday

radishesRadishes were one of the first things we planted when we returned from our holiday.  They are fast growing and ideal in salads.  We have enjoyed our first produce.

radishes2We still have citrus on our trees so are able to enjoy oranges, lemons, tangellos and limes.

I love salads and so now is the time to make the most of salads.  In one of our neighbouring villages, Johnsonville, there is an orchard where we can buy delicious fruit.  At the moment they have cherries, peaches, nectarines and apricots.  The flavour of the fruit from the orchard is so much more intense that fruit from supermarkets.We are lucky to have that produce available.

This Saturday is the Metung Market.  It is months since we were last able to go to our local market so I am really looking forward to it. You can check up in previous posts on what our local market has to offer by using the search facility on this blog.

    How lovely – and lucky you that you have an orchard nearby. I love all the summer fruits.

    I envy your citrus fruits. I have maple tree but it only has leaves on it and one squirrel nest. Actually it only has a squirrel nest now. It’s going to snow tomorrow night.

      We get possum nests in our gum trees but up high enough not to be too much of a bother. The possums did used to eat the buds of the roses but don’t appear to do that any more, maybe they have found something tastier.:-)

  3. Your radishes look perfect. I tried growing radishes but the slugs mostly got to them before I did. It must be lovely to have all that local produce, not to mention salad weather at this time of year. 🙂
