Fruit or Vegetable?
Sarah’s vegepod is doing well, although the tomatoes have swamped the beans. A few weeks ago Paul removed two unidentified plants from the pod and planted them outside. He was pretty sure they were rogue courgette (zucchini) plants from the compost. Their leaves have been growing well but there has been no sign of any baby courgettes forming; they usually produce fairly quickly once the plant reaches a certain size.
Today we inspected the plant and Paul now thinks they may actually be melons. Looking very closely you can just see a tiny fruit developing. Sarah will be well chuffed if she gets some free home grown melons.
Summer has arrived in Australia and the Frangipani tree is now in full bloom.
