Well, I'm not getting around to writing much so thought instead I'd post some photos and hope that makes up for the lack of words! Since the last post on May 4th we've had two nice falls of 24mm and 42mm of rain….quite an exceptional start to the season for us. I'm looking forward to posting photos of the wildflowers in a couple of months. In the meantime here's a glimpse of what's happening in the garden.

you cover the green when it is about 30cm high.

for the chooks in summer and also for mulching material when it is cut and
This is a mini wicking bed made from a foam box. In it
I've planted water spinach and laksa leaf/Vietnamese mint.
Tom and I are planning to make a large wicking bed from
timber later this year.
Another gardening challenge!! I'm not sure how this
blueberry (planted yesterday) will grow here
but I'll never know if I don't try. Fingers crossed!
