Pretty flowers of an Athel tree.
A closer look reveals the delicate twists on the flower stems. There were all kinds of buzzy creatures enjoying the blooms.
Mount Brown in the background...
Power lines heading north...Dry saltbush country.
Flinder's Ranges in the distance.
Heading back home with the Athel tree way down there...
As soon as I arrived home from my walk, it was time to check and water the veggie patch. It looks a bit messy with all the shades still hanging around. I wont be removing them because they will be needed again once Spring arrives.
Radishes grow really fast.
Baby spinach is starting to get going.
Beetroot, almost ready to pick.
Kale growing nicely.
Rogue tomato plant is really taking off. I do wish they would grow like this when I want them to...
More baby spinach.
Carrots taking shape. Not many seeds came up so I will have to plant some more.
Now the cucumbers think it is a good time to grow...not sure if they will produce this late in the season.
The climbing spinach has reached the top of the weld-mesh. Wonder where it will go next?
I think these are little flowers forming.
Wont be long and I will be digging up the sweet potato.
The capsicum are loving the weather at the moment. The bushes are loaded with fruit.
I picked kale, silver beet and celery to add to my green juice...a bunch of kale, 1 silver beet leaf, 1 celery stalk, 2 apples, 1 cucumber, 1/4 lemon and knob of ginger. All good for the immune system.
This is my second attempt at sauerkraut. My first attempt failed.
Hopefully I have it right this time. I haven't made very much just in case it fails again. If it is successful, I will make more.
I had a couple of punnets of strawberries that were starting to turn soft, so I made a strawberry syrup to have on our porridge in the mornings. I added a little water and a small bit of honey for the sweetener.
Tonight I used up some of my rhubarb and made an apple and rhubarb crumble. The apple scraps will become vinegar.
Yummy sweets...served with coconut yoghurt.
How are you filling your days? Always plenty to do around here J
See you soon,
