Not such slim pickings

Despite some sever losses in the fruit department,  thanks to fruit fly and coddling moth, we still have not purchased any meaningful amount of fruit for over twelve months.
We don't have any late stone fruit or early pome fruit but we have a mattering of early passionfruits.



The Strawberries are bearing well thanks to the mild and wet conditions.

And there are enough delicious raspberries to have a pick each day. I must admit to eating them in situ don't usually make it inside. What a treat to have succulent Raspberries in Eugowra.

The Rhubarb is always abundant for stewed fruit and we still have quite a lot preserved in the freezer and in the cupboards. Not a bad result for a less than good season. I think having such a large variety is the key.
