This is the first year (2010) that we have been indicating when are fruit will be ripe. The times are meant to be indicative only so that you have some idea as to what is happening. the seasons can vary for example it can remain colder one year than the next. Generally however they tend to ripen about the same time each year. The main reason that some fruits are available over a longer period is that there are many varieties. Whilst we also have may varieties of each fruit  there will also be gaps for which that fruit won't be available. This is the reason for example that we have plums for several months and apples for a very long time.


  1. Raspberries: late November thru to the middle of January. Sometimes a second pick in February.
  2. Blackberries: late November 'til middle of Janauary

 We also grow some vegetables often as a companian plant before we replace the plastic in which we grow the strawberries. The last few years we have been growing garlic, beetroot, silver beet in this way. We also have an area set aside for rhubarb which Ann uses in her cakes. This year we expect to grow tomatoes as our local growers have retired. Obviously there is a limit to what we can handle as we too are not getting any younger. So if anyone out there wants to grow stuff for us give us a yell.
