but first up ... the patch. this is our little seed bed of gold. a humble area that even in winter is producing fabulous produce for our family, and seed crop for our future offerings.
|very excited to see my first cauliflower emerging today. yeah!!!!! will make for some|
yummy wintery goodness on the table.
|the patch was buzzing with bee's today .... which makes my heart sing. i've deliberately|
let one of my broccoli go to flower for this very reason ... feeding our bees as they
hunker down for winter.... they take care of me .... i take care of them!
|broad beans ... 'nuf said. lovely beanie goodness and soil improvement|
to boot! who could ask for more! yummo! i'd say we are weeks away from
our first crop for the season.
|Leeks .... one of my all time favourites. makes everything|
taste fabulous. these beauties are simply waiting to be used. time to put in
a heap more seedlings that i have growing i reckon!
|lettuce. staple right? i'm terrified of slugs. so i'm breathing deep and|
doing the right thing..... we'll see how this experiment goes!
|see those gorgeous garlic just starting to sprout through? how exciting!|
|Rocky and two of his girls behind the electric fence. looking forward to|
seeing what their offspring bring to us!
|our open compost. the chooks love it ... right next to the orchard. they dig|
through and mix it up as well as giving some added fertility goodness
from time to time! go girls!
