A few close-ups from the garden beds
and some autumn leaves.
Peas and lettuce
from another angle
a few remaining eggplant, lots of self-seeded daikon, all of my brassica rapa and oleica planted out.
Three broccoli plants, staggered planting should
give me a staggered harvest - I hope.
Carrot gone to flower, hoping to save seeds from it, but it's a lone plant... I wonder if the seeds will be viable.
trying to grow in December... the ones in my greenhouse
are fruiting slightly despite poor soil, this one... is probably a lost cause.
The kumquat as it looks in December
A Japanese white oak or "shirakashi" which will be pollarded after it drops its leaves. I can't let anything in this section grow up to the power lines above. The branch crotches make excellent hooks a la the PEP round wood hook Badge Bit
I pollarded the mulberry back in October, so after about 50 days it's putting out new growth.
A wreath I made today with some of the branches which were surprisingly still bendy.
A momiji Japanese maple growing beside the Japanese white oak. It will also be pollarded soon after it drops its beautiful leaves.
And another one which gave me the wood
for several spoons
. The plants below are Japanese ginger or "myoga"
