Hi guys, I went to Valerie’s garden visit today and boy I’m glad I did cause Andy was there and we finally worked out the problem of not being able to add photos from my phone. The trick is DO NOT use the “add photos by mobile phone or email button”. Just treat your phone like a computer and select the files using “browse my computer”.
This is a sample of the preserving I did on the holidays. Mango chutney, bottled peaches and mango, strawberry jam, chilli jam, dried banana and mangoes. I was a busy girl. All from my garden except the strawberries (bought a 4kg jam box for $10) and mangoes (foraged from Bowen trees along rail line).
the lychee harvest from our trees this year was fantastic!! We got about 4 baskets full. I put a net over the top to stop the bats/cockatoo’s.
At the moment, I’ve got a whole bunch of eggplants and cucumbers and not much else. The pomegranate this year were really good. I bagged to fruit to protect from fruit fly.
So, I also bought home some fertilised eggs from my mum to chuck under a broody chook. She managed to hatch out 7 little fluff balls
They were born in the most horrendous weather and I thought for sure some would die but they have all made it through and not been eaten by the dog or the cat so fingers crossed.
Well that’s it from me. I will hopefully be giving much more frequent updates now I’ve got the phone thing sorted.
