Finally, my girls (chooks that is) have got a strapping man in their lives. Just because he is half their size is irrelevant! The fact is, he can crow, is a gentle wee bloke and is totally enamoured with the fact that he has 14 girls all to himself. Oh dear me ..
I haven’t popped up any gardening pics in ages, but you will be happy to know that the garlic is on steroids, so is the kale, the peas are smothered in well – peas ..
Broad beans going nuts
And at long last yours truly finally poked seeds in trays which have since germinated and have been pricked out. Needless to say they are happily ensconced in our kitchen in punnets (can you imagine?). I’ve even sown seed from the cucurbit family and dwarf beans which are currently luxuriating on a heat pad in the garage, and yes we have action in that soil.
I can’t help myself, I love fences
This year I have opted to buy in heirloom toms and chillies and no doubt peppers and eggplants will end up on the shopping list too. If you recall and I shan’t forget, my tomatoes got hammered last year by blight, so as you do, I hoisted them from the soil, wiping a tear at the time and swearing ‘I would never grow them again’. Hmm – so with this in mind, this year I have decided to let someone else do the hard work. As for the chillies and eggplants – these plants are slow growers, so I’m cheating and buying these seedlings in also. There I’ve fessed up!
We have ducklings on our pond, turkeys everywhere (damned things), bunnies digging holes, bees loving the cherry blossom and cats being cats and ignoring me!
And then there is Lucy, who really should be on a diet!
Short and sweet …
May there be light and cobwebs in your macadamia blossom!
Happy gardening 😀
