Growing your own !!
Can't wait for the tomatoes, pumpkins, eggplant, strawberries, rhubarb, capsicums, lettuces and yes even corn !! All organic, no pesticides, just charlie carp fertilizer, lots of water and worm tea from my worm farm (which is going okay after a bad start) . Have a huge oversupply of zucchinis, trying my hand at zucchini relish (friends recipe) , see how it goes.
It really is a joy to produce your own food....who knew it could be so rewarding and so far quite successful....
Quick note on the baby chickens...doing very well, are now 5 weeks old...first time ever raising fertilized eggs....mother hen has been fantastic....she adores them...just hope they aren't roosters....could be a problem !!
