The tallest Mammoth plant that we have grown finally bloom this week. It is about 10 feet tall at least. It was raining yesterday and I was afraid that the bloom will be ragged before I can have a proper look at it after a long week at school. Two bees were constantly buzzing around the sunflower while I took some photos. This sunflower home-saved seeds were sowed early last March.
I was worried that these autumn-sowed sweet corn cobs will never ripen. The tassels have been in dark brown colour for sometime. But went I took a peek inside, the kernels seems to be between white to light yellowish colour. So perhaps they will in about 2 weeks or so, if the weather permits.
Almost a week I did not take a look at this area and found some pear cherry tomatoes on the ground.
We pull out all bush bean plants growing at the front area of this patch and in its place now are very tiny red onion seedlings. Now rainbow chards, dragon carrots and Russian kale received more sunlight so they can grow better. Self-sowed tomatoes producing fruits but it might take longer for them to turn red.
This patch are vegetables that we grown first time. From the back row > Florence fennel, Purple Vienna Kohlrabi, mixed beetroot, dragon carrot and parsnip. Beetroot are already at the stage of baby beetroot.
Sweet corns were finish harvested on this patch last month. So we replaced the sweet corns with our excess seeds of Italian sprouting broccoli, purple savoy cabbage, red choi, silverbeet, Florence fennel, chervil, cauliflower and Chinese celery.
I was planning on going to the lab this weekend since Saturday was raining and Sunday was expected to rain. But it was a Sunny Sunday :). Cancelled my plan to do some work at lab...hehehe...I promise I work much harder next week in the lab as long as I can have one day in the garden.
