Sun, cool and cloud gathering.

The sun has been shining which has given me yesterday afternoon and this morning in the garden. What a treat, peeling back succulents and rampaging pumpkin vines and Ceylon spinach. Finding alsorts of self sown seedlings, like carrots, mizuna and lettuces. Blushing turmeric and ginger are bursting out of the ground, ideal times for candied ginger as its not developed the fibre yet. A little bland in stir fries.

Galangal and Yacons are still growing with the yacon budding up to flower.

A corner where  turmeric and sweet chives with a sweet potato advancing. Ginger in the background.

So the senate is set to change. I will miss the cross benchers if they go. I think they have contributed amply ( whether you agree or disagree with their views) by talking with and to the ordinary Australian on their particular  passion. Jackie Lamby stands out, on her substantial  advocacy for veteran affairs and talking openly on being a Mother.

 

Yacon budding up.

Yacon-2

And the first Yacon flower of 2016.
