Autumn Colour in the Garden: or Things that are actually alive...

Gave the strawberries in the front garden a drink of seaweed tea about three weeks ago, and now we have a few very late season fruit.  The flavour isn't anything like the pre-christmas lot, but its strawberry-ish enough to be lovely.

I love these Fairy Tale eggplants.  I thought this one had died in our Disaster Of Late January - when everything got cooked by a week of 40+ temps, westerly gales and UV levels that were off the scale - but its bounced back.

Shall be including this one in dinner :)
Capsicum; Zodiac Capricorn
And that's a sweetcorn seedling coming up next to it on the left - not grass, I think...

That is one fabulous red pepper (capsicum). My daughter and I were talking yesterday about trying eggplant.

You have son many fresh harvest to pick from your garden. Eggplants are really hardy don't they. They stop producing when it is really hot weather but they bounce back when the weather gets milder.
