No, none of the plums, melons or tomatoes are ripe yet but I thought I'd update you on their progress. The melons are settling in well and putting out some good growth and even a few little flowers. This first one is the Green Nutmeg.
And this is the Minnesota Midget with one of its little flowers.
And this is a little watermelon of some kind I got from the B-store. I ended up freeing up that big tub only recently so I bought a rather advanced seedling.
And this is the Baby Blue pumpkin seedling. I'm not sure why it hasn't "vined" out at all, I hope it hasn't stunted from being in a punnet for so long...
The plum tree out the front has a few fruit starting to ripen. They're still small, I don't think they'll get very big. But they're starting to lighten up in colour. I wonder what colour they'll be in the end? Shouldn't be long now.
And finally, I've started to lose tomatoes to little grubs. I had some do this last year too, they lay their eggs in the flower and the caterpillars eat their way out of the green tomato, leaving poos behind. I don't think there's anything I can do about it once they're in there, just hope there aren't too many. I've lost about 4 so far but there are heaps more green fruit waiting to ripen.
That's the round up for this weekend. It's almost Christmas and we've had beautiful weather - some hot days but they cool down quickly, plus a bit of rain here and there. Can't ask for much more than that!
