Growing local

It's winter here in South East Queensland. However, a lot of things are going very well out in the yard.

Oh the fish are fine.  It's winter, so they're being boring as heck at the moment. Gunna eat a few more soon, just to put the fear of God back into them.... oh, and because they taste so damn good.

Or did I miss it :/ Hugo kept coming and pestering me while I was watching. He likes me to come outside  and watch him protecting the front yard in the afternoon. Comes and gets me by the pants leg so I can see what a fab job he's doing of guarding the I did walk away a couple of times.

All coming along very well. Nothing about the fish? Are they ok.

I don't get many weeds (to be honest).  I just chop and drop those that I do.   Maybe I'm like some kinda super-weed that can out-compete the others?!

When you borrow it is expected that you will pay back ;-) do you want your used weeds returned? ;-)

You're so neat! And you have a real lawn...I have in-house rooms I LIVE AND SLEEP IN that can't match the neatness of your garden. I wish I could be like that. In the garden at least.

Well, I'd prefer it as a full on lifestyle thing really.

I saw not one weed...Do you want to borrow some of mine?
