The chicks have reached a difficult stage! They're not really cute any more, they have too many feathers, but not enough feathers to live outside yet. They are messy, and eating and drinking heaps! We have 40 more eggs in the incubator, so we hope to have more success with this next batch.
My garden is looking very green after all the rain and warm weather. I am having to weed and trim daily to keep up. I'm hoping to get a decent crop of tomatoes, and I've seen two passionfruit flowers, so maybe I will get some fruit this season.

Does anyone know what this insect is? Its not very clear in the photo, but I think they are some kind of bee. They can't possibly be a wasp as they live near the garden and haven't tried to attack me yet! Any ideas?

I've transplanted this comfrey from a pot into the garden, and its taken off! I read in Organic Gardener magazine to plant the comfrey in a low point of the garden so that it can accumulate nutrients. It is growing lovely large leaves for my compost and weed tea.
