Autumn greenery

While I have the camera out, I thought I’d add some garden pics:

Nasturtium, tomato, fennel, tuscan kale & a foam box of baby greens.

As you can see, our courtyard is small, & gets a lot of shade. The little patch in the photo above gets afternoon sun, mostly.

The orchard: a dwarf lemon, multi-graft citrus & stone fruit trees, 3 avocado trees and strawberries in the background.

The roll-a-door at the southern end of the yard keeps the fruit trees warm in winter.

Herbs, curry plant, pomegranate, parsley, amaranth & snow peas in the morning sun.

I have lemon balm, lemon thyme, rosemary¬† & oregano here… and mint, basil & rocket in other spots. You can just see the edge of another ‘mixed greens’ box in the bottom left-hand corner. There are also a couple of geraniums & a succulent in this little cluster.
