Quick walk through garden with small boy…

To the garden! A break in the rain calls for action. So we went down the hill (splashing in all the puddles), past the baby chicks (whose water we topped up), around the geese camped on the road (who honked, as always), and on to the market garden…

The roma tomatoes are looking a bit sad now, but that’s ok, given where we are in the season. Still lots being harvested, which turn into…
MORE bottled tomatoes. This batch Rose did with skin and seeds. Others she does differently. But there’s plenty of room for experimentation, in tomato preserving season…
Carrots popping up! Hooray! Please grow quickly and save us from the tomatoes…

Buckwheat (planted as green manure) flowering…
Then returning home for dinner via the creek flat…

Home again, home again, jiggedy jig…

    I absolutely LOVE getting Milkwood emails and I pass on posts to friends and family who also LOVE reading about growing figs from cuttings, pig tractors, food forests, worms in gardens, etc etc etc- we are due for a visit to Milkwood soon.

    This post is beautiful as is the one celebrating the awsomeness of women in permaculture – I will pass that one on to my wife….my sister and mother…
