I was transplanting my strawberries this week. We started off with a dozen plants 19 years ago when we moved here, we now have 100 plants!! I wish we had heaps of fruit off them, but the birds get most of them. I'll need to buy some more bird netting.
Revelation number 3. I finally found Chicken Woo our bantam hen's nest. Can you see her?
No? you could never be employed as a chicken nest finder. How about now?
I have finally got to her nest in time and her eggs hadn't gone off - look how many she can lay in a couple of days.
Now that we've taken her eggs away, she is trying to come inside through the cat door, honestly she is such a character.
I've got 4 months to learn the intricacies of Niel's water pump and tank system, honestly when we went to the US last year we left it in the hands of our Neighbour who is a hydrologist and rural septic tank specialist, and we came home to a bill for a new pump, when it was pretty new when we left. I'll get my revenge when I teach him some tips on how to cook for himself. You can't live on steak or Mc Donald's every night.
