Anyway, lots has been happening here this week, especially given it's the start of winter and things should be slowing down.
I took a walk around the place this afternoon to see what was going on... Now remembering, it's autumn/fall, there is an unusual combination of fruit and vege developments going' on...
|Our first bananas are only weeks away from being ready to harvest|
|I planted garlic last weekend and some of it is already raising it's arms to the sky|
|Mr Pineapple Head (thrown in the ground last year) is expected to bear fruit next year.|
|The chooker moles missed a pumpkin seed that seems to have escaped from under the back of their palace and has started to grow down the hill, complete with little pumpkins about the size of large grapefruit. I love pumpkin soup!|
|My first attempt at Rosella was stumped by bloody caterpillars but I think I might have enough fruit to harvest for one or two jars|
|Our tamarind plant flowered this week, beautiful|
Meanwhile it rained on Saturday and so I just got to hunt and gather (like I do every Saturday) and then sharpen my chainsaw blades. Good news was I got to use them on Sunday morning. This is one of the many trees that came down during the Australia Day (end of January) storms over the electric fence, which is why the donkeys have been agisting at the neighbours place since.
|The last of the trees over the fence from the January storms. Seriously, I have another 20 - 30 dead trees to cut down for firewood still.|
I also have a cunning plan being developed to address what the chooker moles and one Max cat have done to my previously beautiful Sir Walter lawn around the clothes line.
Speaking of Max, this is what our now 6-7 month old baby has been up to...
|Cuuute, snuggled up on the couch|
|... who apparently grows in his sleep!|
Gotta' go now. MOTH has made some amazing greek lamb dinner with roast lambm garlic mash, tzatziki, and home made hummus.
