Today was an amazingly warm autumn day – a big change from the very cold weather we had over the Easter weekend!
The little chicks are growing up fast. Cricket is now saying “bok bok” a lot more than “cheep cheep”, and charlotte is growing a rather lovely hen’s tail. I’m feeling a little reserved about whether Cricket is in fact a girl (not again!) so I’m keeping a closer eye on her.
The afternoon lighting was rather beautiful for photographing the garden. Hope you enjoy this update 🙂
The beetroot is growing on nicely, and the greenhouse is so pretty in this light!
The green manure in the left bed is growing nicely. Turns out a lot of it is broccoli from letting them go to seed!
The green peas have managed to survive this year, and are climbing onto the trellis. Inside the A-frame is some Kale
The comfrey under the citrus trees is looking quite lush. Time to cut it for some fertiliser 🙂
The garlic we grew last year is now sprouting up with shoots, ready to overwinter.
A glimpse inside the greenhouse. Onion and leek seedlings looking good! And an old broccoli seedling waiting.
The broccoli in the garden is looking good, except for some caterpillar damage on one or two. The potatoes are beginning to get more foliage. These will harvest at the end of winter
The camellias have been flowering well for a couple of weeks.
We have just one olive on our olive tree. It turned black a few weeks ago. Probably ripe!
The self-sown borage on the driveway is overtaking the gazanias we have planted here. Oh well!
Cricket (back) and Charlotte (front) are looking bigger. Charlotte is still a very snuggly chick. Cricket … is a little rocket
