Our loquat tree is setting fruit as we head into cooler weather.
Everbearing strawberries jump back into action now that the weather is cooler. We should have a crop in December. It’s time to clean up the dead biomass around each plant.

Things to Do

Fuji apples
Two of the last four remaining Fuji apples that the rats didn’t get this summer. We’ll cover these with protective netting until they’re ready to harvest.
Ginger ready
Our tiny pot of ginger is ready to harvest
Blackberry canes
It’s time to prune back the blackberry bramble. Watch our video on how we do that.
