We have a large vegetable garden on clay loam soil so we add lots of compost. We are growing lots of garlic this year. We also have a good sized plum orchard and lots of other fruit trees, a house cow and chooks.

UK trip

Off to the UK shortly, to visit family and see heritage orchards, organic farms and farmers' markets.  Looking forward to learning heaps :-)

Wiltshire Horn Sheep

We have been selling sheep and lambs, reducing our flock to the best shedders.  Wiltshires are an old breed, they are easy to look after as they don't (shouldn't!) need shearing.

I love their long faces and their horns, and they look great when they fully shed.  If they half shed, they look really scruffy!

Hey, wonderful how they just grow, isn't it?  We put them in really late, but it has been such a long dry (extremely dry) summer, and there they are, so many of them.  Wonderful!

Started a blog about growing for the local market!

Sorry. Janine I can't remember if I thanked you for the parsnip seeds. I have been away on holiday and had this horrible thought that I hadn't been in touch. Got back in the dark so have no idea what state the garden is in.

Hi Janine!

Thanks so much for dropping off more corn plants, wool and dye. Sorry I missed you. I was driving back from dropping Cameron at school when I drove past you (waiting it the lights at Regent) 

I cooked up several batches of wild ginger (from my neighbour) then killed my frypan *sniff*  but I'm now the proud owner of a woodburner? BBQ so can get cracking on cooking up the corn to make into paper.

I hope all is well with you.

miss you,

Hi Janine

We are thrilled to have eight chicks from the 12 eggs, one died, and three didn't hatch. One chick is white, two are very dark, and the rest various shades of brown. The very dark ones have slightly longer tails, so we think they may be roosters, do you have any thoughts on that? All are very vigorous and happy, and I have put a couple of pictures on my page.

It's all very exciting, thank you so much again.
