Growing local

Been running around like a headless chook for the last week and a bit trying to get jobs done in the garden. On the weekend went and visited a fellow stfc member and took some date palm pups from his palms. Got a male and female medjool, a bisexual medjool and a bisexual honey barjee.

The quail are feathering up. Collecting eggs to put anothr batch in tuesday night(so they hatch on a weekend).

Pulled out some tumeric and ginger to freeze.

Realised we have not bought any veges for a month!

Am harvesting nightly, lots of salads. Made a quail stew and beer battered trout on the weekend.

The tomatoes are going gangbusters in the net house. Planted winter brasiccas out(kale,cabbage, cauli and brocoli)Still have more seedlings to plant out. My friends kids that are staying in my granny flat love fresh veges.

Also had a visit from my physio that discovered I had moringa and wanted some cuttings and now some wants to buy some quail as well.
