Last weekend I drove up to my parents place for a cup of tea and cake. This is something I try to do as often as I can now they are getting older. It was a good chance to take some photos around their little farm.
Let me introduce Geraldine...she is such a cutie but can be a bit mischievous at times.
My parents veggie garden. It is growing well under the shade my dad put up last year.
Leeks gone to seed.
My dad coming up with ways to keep the birds from taking his fruit.
Gum tree bloom.
The perfection of succulents.
Hollyhocks through the fence.
And here at home...
A huge apple cucumber I picked last week.
Meals prepped for hubby’s trips away. Leftover roast chicken made into curry.
Trimmed the oregano again and picked two eggplants.
Oregano placed in the solar dryers.
Making a batch of Kombucha. This happens every five to seven days.
My grandsons request for lemon slice.
He loves it.
Another vintage find.
Ratatoulle using eggplants and zucchini from my garden.
Reviving my sourdough starter.
And a beautiful sky to finish.
Stay cool or warm, depending where you are. We are going through a heatwave at the moment. Yesterday reached 46.8C (116F), and it is meant to be hot here for the next week.
What is going on in your neck of the woods?
Take care and I will see you soon,
