Spring stuff

 Who says lettuces can't be decorative?

My first cherries have started growing, as have my apples. You have no idea how excited I am.

Behind the fruit trees we've put up a trellis for the kiwi fruit plants and passionfruit.  My sister had the wonderful idea of using plastic coated clothesline instead of wire so they don't get too cold in the winter.

 We've been overrun with snowpeas, which is not a bad thing really.  I just wish they came in small doses throughout the year, rather than all at once.

It's that time of the year, and some of my peas and snowpeas have started getting the dreaded white mold on them.  I have a number of peas dotted around the garden, so they're somewhat quarantined, but I remember this happening last year around this time.

Lastly, I originally made this sign for my beetroot, but it kinda fits for the red onions.
