    I've an apricot as well. I'll be honest, I liked the house when we saw it, but the thing that made me want to buy it was the two mature cherry trees, mature apricot and mature peach tree. I've since plants 3 crab apples and next I want to plant a proper apple and pear tree. I love fruit trees- they are great fun! And cheap snacks for the kids as well!

    Same from me. We finished harvest last Friday, machinery is all clean and back in the shed. Now we just need to clean 400t of barley.

    Yay! I get to join in!
    Atm I have something ridiculous like 25 tomato plants that I'm going to have to move. Where they are isn't enough sunlight. I got them off the Bunnings discount stand, so I don't mind too much if they don't survive.
    I've also got 5 pumpkin plants in big pots, they're Vining plants so I'm training them up around a trellis when they grow a bit bigger. Two Chilli plants, ten capsicum plants, two strawberry plants and a heap of herb plants. And one mandarin tree! I've got a few lettuce that I got cheap cause they're near to seeding, so looking forward to being able to collect all the seedy goodness for next year and I'm about to plant potato, carrots and peas. I only live on a little block in the suburbs and we up cycle heaps (and side cycle?). I'm excited about my peas - I'm growing them on a clothes airer instead of a trellis. Bring on after Christmas. Wee!

    How did the season finish? That's great that harvest is out of the way in time for Christmas, although no doubt you would have preferred more grain to get off. Are you going to be able to have some more family time with your partner now harvest is over ?

    lol. Tbh, it's not as dramatic as it sounds. I never put plants from the discount bench straight into the ground just in case there's something wrong with it and so I can make sure they're all getting enough sunlight/water/fertilizing bits when they've been so mistreated. =( so I just have to move pots really. But still. Exciting! I might do that tonight actually. Mmm..

    Wasn't fantastic. The wheat looks good but didn't yield well becUse it got frosted. On the upside what we got was good quality, we didn't have any major breakdowns and prices are good.

    Dh is still busy but we're going for a short holiday in feb.
