The kids bought it for me for mothers day a couple of years back. This is the first fruit that it has had, and it lives in a pot. So we are very proud of it.

Shall try one tomorrow.

Oops sorry, yep we have now picked 2 off. the first one wasnt quiet ready, still had a litte bitiness to it.

The peel smells amazing. So much stronger than the store bought ones. Plenty of juice, and the second one was a little sweeter.

If they are like oranges, the first frost on them will improve the flavour.

Plant, potatoes some time in spring, as early as a few weeks before you expect your last frost.

frost will damage leaf growth, so make sure you are clear of frosts before the leaf growth appears. Depending on where you like in Adelaide, you can get 2-3 crops per year.

Ok, thought it might be time to put in some updated photos. Although, we lost the month of September and half of October to our eldest daughter getting married. By the time i spent most weekends making their outfits, it didnt leave anytime for the garden.

Sorry, meant to ask, any ideas on what might be wrong with the potatoes?

the recent warm weather has made the greenhouse warm up. Hence a lot of the lettuce has started to bolt.

Yeah Parsley is a good easy weed to have going around your garden I have it all over the place, though generally the flat leaf variety.
