At last, some produce from the garden….


The “Tiger Tommies” are especially good!

It took some chicken manure from the new neighbour to kick the damn things into gear, and since surrounding the bases of the plants, they’ve gone into overdrive. Even the pepper plant is entering “warp speed”! The soil clearly needs a bit more than just regular manure and compost to provide the right nutrients, something to bear in mind for the future.

Blogging has taken a bit of a back burner for the last couple of weeks, thanks to summer holidays, keeping the kids entertained and trying to get our future plans in order. I hope to be back “on the ball” now, as school is gearing up to begin again.
