I wrote a post the other night and then yesterday without any thought deleted it! What? Oh please Julie … too much.
Wish I could say I found it funny …
Well if nothing else you will be pleased to know that my garlic has finally been poked in the dirt (I’m very happy). I prepped the bed with lots of delicious organic material – think food scraps, Bokasi bin pickled veg (not to be eaten), homemade compost, planting mix and some good amendments – seaweed pellets and rok solid.
Please don’t ask the variety – I have no idea now. But the seed is ours and produces wonderful garlic – and yes Bill I promise to let you use some! LOL
Speaking of seed – I have to show you that gorgeous self seeded pumpkin again …
And some beautiful autumn light through the pines
Our weather has been so mild lately .. with temps reminiscent of lazy summer days.
I was wandering around the property lugging that camera the other day – and I was pleased to see the
puri puri puriri tree blooming in our forest.
Our large native wood pigeons adore feeding on the berries of this tree. They are so beautiful and make a special noise as they fly through the air, I can’t help but smile.
The brassicas are growing nicely, and yes I’m out already doing night slug patrols with the torch.
We are fans of chilli, me especially and we have a bed which is chocka with them … time to harvest, dry and freeze. What do you do with yours?
Are you surprised that I’m posting again already? I am …
Happy gardening from me
And a woof from Dan
