A view from the window after summer rain.
This year I was faced with the dilemma of having little time and still wanting to reap a reasonable harvest from the garden. Seed saving took a rest and I instead went through and planted out older seeds and packet seeds that had been accumulating. The best plants in the garden this year are actually the ones that came up through their own accord.
They boys have also claimed a portion of the garden with their climbing structure and play area, though I have made the most of pieces of space with container gardens.
This years crops are mainly pumpkins, beans, tomatoes, zucchinis, spinach and kale.
We have also added to the mix some new chicks, hatched by our clucky chooks and a Japanese Quail male and three hens - finally. This has been a long time coming and we are getting at least two eggs a day currently.
