@PlainJane I don't know, some sweet mid-season variety. I have also a tree of sweet/sour cherry cross called Marela here, but it won't start ripening for a couple of weeks.

I got these Big Beef for my dad, as he's not a fan of my "technicolor" and "squatter" tomatoes. I bet nobody can guess why (usually small) tomatoes that grow by themselves in the fields here are called squatters. :) Big Beef is a very popular variety here, but I think everything and anything is sold under that name.

Tomatillos are a big hit with the bumblebees.

Brassicas love the cold spell that's going on last ten days.

I'm trying to root roses for the first time. I got some cheap rooting hormone powder on AliExpress. Six days in, so far so good. I'm giving it a try with this orange tea rose below. It's about 40 years old. My late mother planted it, and I wouldn't like losing it, as I have no idea what is the name of that variety. Then I'll try the pink rose below the orange one, also planted at the same time.

Looking great Armorial. Can't wait for sowing season here. Must agree with assessment of Barry's Crazy Cherry. One crazy plants with lots of yummies on it.

Nice to see cool weather brassicas as mine are history.
Good luck on the rose cutting project. It’s a really nice rose.
Your tomatoes really look good!

And a nice yard to have as a neighbour! I think.
Thirty years ago, when I first moved to this house, the place was almost naked of any growing things except a weed and feed lawn, one rose and a shrub. I planted hedges and a few trees which grew while I worked. In retirement I have been mulching those hedges with much of the prunings from them returning to the soil and creating a lovely mulch.
In the past, it was not possible to grow some plants because there were so many insects that the plants could not survive.
I realized the other day that I can now grow a pansy in the ground without having it eaten until it disappears. I think it is due to all the birds who live in the yard taking shelter in the hedges these days. Right now the babies are out and the mothers are spending all day every day looking for insects to feed them. I watched a young sparrow at the base of a pansy inspecting it for insects yesterday.
So, things seem to have come to a nice balance. It may well be to your advantage Arnorrian, to have such a neighbour. It certainly keeps the air good! Better to have such a yard next door than the one I have on one side where it is a ' log it, burn it, pave it' attitude, well, maybe not that bad as they kept the lawn. That neighbour views me as being a Jungle Queen. I wear the title with pride! Other neighbour loves my yard.

I love it. A pair of redstarts has been nesting there for many years.
