|I have finally harvested broccoli and we'll just keep taking small florets from this one|
|The frost damaged Poor Mans Bean has recovered and is thriving, |
soon to take over my garden fence once again!
|I returned from a trip to the parents-in-law with a stash of tomato seedlings |
and a couple of basil plants that just self-seed in their garden.
|Herbs in pot (escape risks - mint and oregano, and thyme)|
|Rosemary, sage, capsicum (survived the frost) and pathetic looking lettuce.|
|Aloe plants that used to live in a small pot, time to plant out, |
and part of another experiment with fermented aloe....
|Plenty of silver beet and mustard greens!|
|The bandicoot has been back digging holes...|
|This is a bandicoot (not my bandicoot, I haven't been able to catch him yet!)|
|Comfrey has also recovered and I have plenty for |
compost and feeding to the cow.
|looking across the garden|
|beans - I tried sprouting them in toilet rolls, so far so good|
|peas - still not happy, only getting 2-3 a day :(|
|lavender and trying to revive the paw paw plants|
|arrow root flowers, so pretty!|
|Tomato and zuchini seedlings nearly ready to plant |
(plus some eggplant that didn't sprout yet, any tips? might just be old seed)
|finally planted the seed potatoes, hope its not too late in the season|
|Mollie is getting HUGE and could be weaned but we like having |
the option of not milking some mornings and letting her have it all
|Not enough milk for hard cheese, but still making|
cream cheese, yum.....
|......and kefir (see the "grains" on the spoon? we feed the curd to |
the dogs and drink the whey ourselves).
|We've got the incubator running again (48 eggs!), |
and I sold 5 cartons at work this week!
|The roosters posed for a photo - Randy the Rhode Is Red......|
|....and Ivan the White Leghorn, check out those beautiful tails!|
|The dogs are now great mates after only knowing each other for a few months|
|BEFORE: my husband has built a steel rack to tidy up all our scrap metal....|
|AFTER: that's better!|
|We finally got around to tanning the hide from Bruce, more on that one later.....|
