Time is a sneaky thing it has a way of getting away from you and before you know it you find you have a million things to write about but have forgotten half of them... Sigh must be getting old?

Anyhoo I thought I would share my firsts of stuff I have growing. All of them very exciting and important because they were first.

Yes The very first golden tomato. Tasty with the ol Vegie burger

The first smoke ever on my Cotinus grace

Finally after sowing an either packet of the bronze sunflower I got one. Just outside my bedroom window which made me smile every time I opened the curtains

So with 3 of the same flowering gums you would think they would flower at the same time. No the flowered one at a time the closest one is almost finished now.

The first olives. Question is when do you harvest them???

And last but not least. This is my very first watermelon ever! Hope it is as tasty as it is cute
Once the gluts start I think you tend to forget the first brave souls who battled all the elements to make something of themselves. I just wanted them to be remembered. And I have even prepared the soil in readiness for some winter cropping firsts.

  1. That sunflower is gorgeous - and I'm very impressed that you've got olives on your tree. Fingers crossed for your brave little watermelon x
