Here comes the sun

So Spring arrived a little early here in South Australia this year.  The weather has been quite mild for the past month, and the fruit trees began blooming back in late July (about a month early).  As long as we get some good steady rains from here on we should be in for a great fruit year as long as I can keep the possums off the fruit.

I’ve added a few more fruit trees this year (see following list), and planted a good crop of Kipfler potatoes to impress the Norwegians coming for holidays later in the year.
