Thriving winter garden - Unimpressed daddy-bun! sleepy Chester Cat!! a real mixed bag tody!

Hi every bun!! Sweetie here, congratulations and lots of binkies for all!!! Our lil' ol' bloggy blog hit the 1000's visitor!!  Wonder-bun !!
First up we have some pics of our thriving winter garden....   pretty neat to have tomatoes like these growing when some of our top temps have been a mere 14 degrees Celsius here.  They are not protected but we have had a fair bit of glorious sunshine which has probably made the difference. 

 But wait, what is this ????  Daddy - bun Angel is NOT IMPRESSED!!  he has noticed there is a fence around the veggie patch and he can't sneak in anymore!!
 Oh, dear!
 Angel is not happy, he is drooling over all the veggies - he even gave an annoyed thump!  to show his dissatisfaction.  I don't think he has given up just yet. I see his mind scheming.   Luckily My Yollie gives us loads of fresh veggies right from this very garden EVERYDAY!!  But daddy thinks he would do a better job at choosing which bits to harvest for us =(;o3



 So Chester has been keeping a close eye on him!  Right from the lounge window!
Oh, no - what's this?  He is getting sleepy!

 Oh well he tried!  


 Oh, and just to finish My Yollie found this while cleaning out some papers.  It was made years ago for a "team-building" exercise where she worked - pretty lame hey? Crazy bosses!

 Any hoo - appart from a nice sketch My Yollie did of a Thai Girl while on her honeymoon, it has one very interesting picture of "baby" Chester. It was taken when he first came to live with My Yollie and Stewart just after they got married.  He is 10 now and he was My Yollie's wedding gift from her new husband Stewart, aawhh how cute. And the best bit, he's lasted longer than flowers would have, hee, hee, hee.

Bye for now, from Sweetie  - Jungle june cont, tomorrow - promise!   xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Tomatoes at this time of year, is that normal? Do you think they will turn red?

Yollie, the human of Fairy Castle Farm said...

Yep! Coz they have been, the Grosse Lisse I pick as they just start to turn paler and they finish off inside.
Strange I know - The other one with smaller "truss" bunches is a "Truss Plum" it's a yucky hybrid Yates-ey one - (I prefer diggers or "saved" ones any day). BUT It was planted in 2009!! And it is still going. It slows down a little in winter but really it's tomatoes all year round, the best bit is that each season they get bigger and better on the same plant. Stewart said it is probably just the position or perhaps an air-pocket under ground near the roots that may heat a little. Whatever it is I'm not complaining. I love my tomatoes. Bet Yates would be fuming if they knew! :o)
