Evidence of dog attack

Patience

Some citrus this year, mandarins, oranges, limes, grapefruit. Should have put in the persimon in year one. I've put in asparagus three years late. The bed in front of the west facing wall is very hot and dry. Good for melons and grapes. Have moved the rhubarb to a better irrigated spot with deep soil. Passionfruit seed has germinated. I have to figure out how to contain the chooks but still let them forage. They seem to be happier on everyone else's property and I think it's grass they…

Chitted seed

The chitted corn and beans had fantastic germination but the corn is dieing back although it has pollinated. Broad Beans are a winter crop anyway.

Chickinsulation

Temperature will drop to 4 degC tonight and one of my chooks was attacked by a roaming pair of dogs and lost half her feathers.

Persistence

My bananas didn't produce very promising fruit and took up a lot of space so I chopped them up and dumped them in the soak hole at the lower end of the section along with the taro. Being indestructible they both took root and now serve as transpirers and will block the neighbours house in two years. May eventually produce something edible if you can wait that long.
