Whilst inside I'm loving the warmth that a fire brings...
Outside...well it's all very depressing really - out there in the garden that is. I'm 'in-between' seasons and all my newbies are getting eaten by...bugs! Possums! Naughty big knickered fluffy bottomed hens!
Caught in the very act!!
Hoicking her bloomers up...
And legging it!!
Poor old brassica
Worm farm is sprouting...something!
Had to shear the old chard cos of too much naughty nibbling by cheeky fluffy ladies
Only these silverbeet are doing ok due to the resident preying mantis and its special powers of chook invisibility. How sad that the other 12 plants have been eaten to stalks!!
For a wonder the coriander (cilantro) is actually thriving despite frequent haircuts
Something...or someones!... is eating all of my pea shoots in the long planter!!
I've made a very half hearted attempt to protect some of my brassica sprouting
Hanging out innocently at the bottom of the garden after I've chased them away from my vegie garden
Except Cloud Zen the poor darling who can't fly and can never join the others up there on the wine barrels.
Hoping these sweetpea up here will survive being so high above the bugs and chooks
Even inside the plants are being ravaged by a certain Master Bok and his 2 yr old mischieviousness!!
But onto the good.
These guys at least won't be eaten but may succumb to Mrs Bok Forgetting To Water
The broccoli really are taking ages! Or they seem to be! They are doing better than the ones I sowed outside directly into the vegie beds though which are getting eaten by everything!!!!
We've been getting lovely fresh eggs - even if they are tiny! - every day
Love how eggwhites of a fresh egg really hug the yolk!
It's cosy inside
New Autumn apples are lovely aren't they? So crisp and sweet...
