Monsoon Garden

The weather in Auckland right now reminds me of monsoon season in Borneo around this time last year. Only this is a bit colder. It’s supposed to be summer. This week we’ve had intense bits of rain followed by intense sun. No one seems to be enjoying it except the garden.

I ate my first garden strawberry this week (we planted 2 varieties) and I’m getting excited at the prospect of our tomatoes. They’re a still green at the moment, but you can tell they’re going to be all different.

To get more interest out of the 3-drawer filing cabinet planter, we’ve planted 3 tomato plants.

  • Beefsteak  – a deep red, large (one of the largest kinds), uneven shaped tomato.
  • Sweet 100 – a prolific red cherry tomato.
  • Yellow Plum – a bright yellow egg shaped tomato.

      Oh but he did! We planted more strawberry plants than these. The lowest row in this barrel planter were 40-50cm up from the ground and were all eaten by Tofu within 24 hours of planting.
