We’ve had a fair bit of rain over the last few days, and some of our recent plantings have started to shoot up! Here’s a pictorial update, and some random extras thrown in. 🙂
I spotted this runner bean shoot growing in our lawn last weekend. We mowed only one week before!
The pineapple sage has another wonderful flush of flowers
A bee sips nectar from some Borage flowers
The rainbow chard is starting to get a lot bigger, and in the front there are plenty of Bok Choy seeds germinating to replace the ones we’ve eaten up.
The shelling peas are up and well on their way.
(Mostly) dead aphids on the underside of our Bay tree, after spraying with home made white oil.
We let the chooks into the top of the orchard where we had seeded lucerne and green manure. Chicken paradise!
All five chickens are now running together quite nicely. The little ones still say “Cheep! Cheep!”. Harriet does occasionally chase them.
The new chicks are getting bigger! Here Cricket tries to steal a blade of grass from Charlotte.
I love Gazanias! This one is a cheerful creamy yellow. 🙂
I discovered this awesome fungus when I was dusting off the flour bag ready for washing. That’s what the white powder is. So cool!
I put vege net over the broccoli to keep out the Cabbage White Moth. This is working well!
Peeking under the net, the broccoli plants are getting much bigger!
