January, January

Summer in Perth. Not always a month we look forward to. Heat. Dryness. Just generally heat. All. the. time. We are thankful that this year we have been blessed with a mild Summer so far. And that we can be productive in our garden during the Christmas and new year holidays.

One of things we DO look forward to is our berries. Luscious, juicy, blue berries. Our bush went nuts this year. I’m not complaining. I’m inventing excuses to eat them. haha “Let me just go get some berries off the bush…”

Nothing better that fresh berries off the bush. We have been inspired to create a berry patch, perhaps at the bottom of the fruit trees in our orchard. It merits thoughts and research. And salivating.

We also officially planted our first little orchard tree (we have others that are bigger, but this was our first mini tree). A mandarin. Dancing Girl loves them, so it was a logical choice. Our local area used to be home to citrus and there were once many citrus orchards. We are hoping it grows strong and we reap the yummy fruits on our labours.

What have you been doing to enjoy summer?
