Boy, its been over a month since I last posted. Slacko! In my defence though, it has been a bit hectic around here recently.
Last week was my week to visit Brisbane for two days to see my folks and do some badly needed bits and pieces shopping down there. I needed a new blender/whizzer thingy to make my kale smoothies in the morning; I wanted to buy some fabric, prescriptions needed filling, some clothing items were purchased etc etc.
On the weekend we had the sheep shorn and lice treated so they will be ready for summer. This gave us a good opportunity to look them over to see who needed to go on a diet and who might be expecting little ones in the near future. One of the ewes who didn't even look in lamb produced twins the night after shearing and they are the tiniest lambs we have ever had. Their voices are like squeaks. There might be another one or two in lamb so we'll keep watching them.

Recently I visited Toowoomba with some friends ahead of the Carnival of Flowers to enjoy some of the colour in the public parks. We had a great morning complete with morning tea at a local croquet club which was situated within one of the parks we visited.

Clockwise starting at top left - fig, blossoms on apple tree, grapes, brassica, fennel and garlic patch, blackberry, rhubarb, peas, no-dig brassica bed, plum tree, apple blossom. Centre new no-dig bed beside chookyard.
So, that's a wrap up of news around here. I hope to post 2-3 times a week now that there's some garden activity, but don't hold me to it! Cheers, Barb.
