Come take a stroll arm-in-arm with me through the finely laid out Spring gardens here at Chez Hoppo Bumpo.
Over here we have our stone fruit orchard. What's that? Oh yes, I suppose it is a little unusual for an orchard to be a single fruit tree in a pot. Still, we are hoping for a bumper crop this year. Last year we clocked in at 6 plums, but to be fair most of the flower buds were blown off on the freeway. Re-locations can be so tricky in spring.
Now on the left here, we have the citrus grove. Just wait til the summer. I have big plans for that lemon, I do. Can I make lemon curd with one lemon?
What's that? The lime tree? Er ... nothing to see here; please move along.
Over here on the table, we have our strawberry plantation (in
Now straight on ... oooh what's that? Dehydrated. Red. Well blow me, I didn't know that was still alive. It will be perfect for antipasto - sun-dried capsicum, anyone?
And finally, we have our blueberry patch. Yes, yes. I should say that it is unusual to be growing a blueberry bush in a 4 inch pot. But against the odds this brown twig seems to be flowering. Sadly once we factor in the elements, blackbirds and continued neglect, our super-food harvest will possibly struggle to qualify as either "super" or "food".
Well, that concludes our garden tour. As you can see, if you arrive at this address and are reliant upon chlorophyll, you're basically a goner. I agree ... some people don't deserve plants, do they?
