Spring time in the garden

on September 26, 2015

It's been a very productive day. After the cow disaster from a couple of weeks ago I have harvested the last of my carrots today (the few the cows left me) and decided to get my spring/summer crop ready.

Dug the whole lot over and planted a range of seeds with everything I love: silverbeet, spinach, beetroot, radishes, eggplant, capsicum, more carrots, a range of lettuces... most of the seeds were from the first seedbox I received earlier this year so not sure if everything will come up. But we shall see. I'm excited =D

18 weeks and counting

It's getting hard to hide the bump now...

Rude awakening

on September 12, 2015

Last night I was home alone and seriously scared to death. We're out in the sticks and I constantly heard noises outside the house. Every once in a while it sounded like someone was snooping around the house and I thought I was going paranoid.

Well, turns out someone HAD been out there all night. But rather stomping than snooping. Looks like the neighbour's cows had gotten loose ;-( And they really enjoyed my vege garden that I was so proud of! They munched most of my silverbeet, carrots, swedes - even my last Kohlrabi that I was looking forward to devouring this weekend. NOT HAPPY!!! Not to speak about the cow shit that's all around the place now.

Lucky Matt - apart from a thrown over strawberry pot they left his garden alone. The windbreaker seemed to have been enough to hold them off. As for me - I guess I can start all over again :-(
