Gardening

Despite some chilly nights the tomatoes pumpkins and zucchini planted out the weekend before last seem to be doing well and benefiting from last weekend's rain. The fig and apricot trees are also doing well with fruit setting and beginning to form

The snailbait seems to be deterring the shelled ravagers and the cat seems to be doing his job deterring various small rodents, and so far possums have not shown any interest and it's too early for the birds to do anything to the apricots

The only blip of concern is that some of the zucchini have developed some yellowing on the leaves - possibly a potassium deficiency. I tried a fairly strong feed of seaweed and fish emulsion last night - we'll see if that fixes it ....
