Preparing winter crops...

Pulled my last row of tutaekuri and the few huakaroro that I had planted out. I need the space for leeks and onions, with brocolli, brussell sprouts taking up the last remianing gaps I had.

The tutaekuri crops well - about 4-5 pounds a plant (although when I first planted this variety in Washbournes Rd, it cropped twice a heavily). Huakaroro a bit disappointing but I didn't have good seed this year.

Here's a pic of a 'Pepper Tree' bought from a hippy shop in Mapua. Evidently crops a very hot pepper for about ten years.
