Espalier olives update, and some other garden stuff too


It’s been a while since my last post, so a quick prune and tie-up of the espalier olives seems like a good opportunity for an update.

The olives have been going great guns over the summer. It wasn’t too hot, and there was plenty of rain, so they haven’t really been tested yet in their north facing exposed wall location.

I did a quick prune of a few wayward shoots, and tied the latest growth back. They are up to the top of the frame already. I think it’s been about a year since they went in.

We’ve also been finishing off the harvest of a few more productive crops lately too. The last of the tiny tom tomatoes came off the plants today, as well as a lonely full sized fruit. (different plant!)

Last of the seasons tiny toms, and a rogue big feller too!

I also grabbed what will probably be the last of the figs the other morning whilst out at the chook shed on the regular egg collecting trip. These were really big, juicy and yummy! Made for a beaut morning tea snack.
