City Farm update
Yeah! We almost forgot to mention this. Two nights ago the City of Sydney voted to support two City Farms (or … one City Farm operating at two sites?) - at the Powerhouse Museum carpark area (next to the tramsheds) and at St Peters. The City Farm Association will be working with the Council and the Powerhouse. We’ll let you know if we hear anything else.
Maybe not quite a bounty, but exciting nonetheless. Harvesting tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants, beets, ground cherries, bok coy, kale, and swiss chard. The first few cucumbers and eggplants were quite bitter, but the latest round was great. I suspect a squash beetle or something similar killed the zucchini plant. This weekend, I planted more greens as well Brussels sprouts, more beets, and garbanzo beans.
One of the pepper plants (lower right on the left photo) is lagging behind. Charentais melon (right) is fruiting.
Heirloom tomatoes and cucumber line the railing.
