Firstly I’d like to share what Craig and I had for breakfast this morning:
Everything is from our property. Lemon Grass tea, balckberries, peaches and plums. Yum, yum, yum!
We dug out our first small potato bed and collected 10kg of potatoes.
On top of that (no photo sorry) we also gathered recently 300g of cherry tomatoes and 1.5kg of mixed money marker & heritage tomatoes.
I made my first attempt at making cheese. Goat milk feta. The milk comes from our newest contacts who live up the road a ways and own the sweetest Saanen goats.
Craig has decided that all young ducklings are to be called “Beaker”. I would like to report that mum and her (10) ducklings are doing well out in the wilds once more and the Beakers are growing nice and big.
Fruit is really starting to come in now, a few more weeks and we should have a wonderful overabundance of blackberries, plums and kiwi fruit.
Further garden bed preparation is cruising along with two crops of seed potatoes now in, along with more tomatoes (roma/egg) and pink hopi corn.
Since this photo was taken the keep-out-chickens fence is also up and managing to keep the chickens out but not the cats.
The amaranth seems to be thriving well and we should soon have some glorious sunflowers opening their giant yellow flowers.
