September glory

Hi everyone.

My garden is really coming into it's own at the moment despite the lack of water.  All my washing machine water is going on the garden and I refuse to not water my food crops when needed.  I have tried to reduce my reliance on pesticides etc and have been hoping that nature can do its thing.  I planted a bug and butterfly mix by green harvest and have massive queen anne's lace, borage and another pretty flower that I have no clue about.  I am seeing more…

A 'model' kitchen garden... in the subtropics.

After years of experimentation I now have a garden that has 'structure'. Less jungling and explosive but easier to manage than in days of yore.

Tiny farm tales... August 2019

Tiny farm tales...

I have 48 quail eggs in the incubator, on day 7 now. They have about 10-12 days to go. That’s left me with four dozen eggs for eating. That’s a thought process that I mostly leave alone. I also have four or five old birds that I can tell will drop off the perch soon. I lost one on the weekend. Nature says the old must pass so the new can come on. People aren’t any different, except the span of years Is greater.
