the garden...

Toni has been doing a heap of work in the garden, while I have been busy out on our Mountain Bike Trails, today's jobs where doing up a new bed to plant the strawberry runners we had donated to us by Jan Scott from the Wilderness Rescue group we volunteer with, thanks Jan.  All the new Strawberries were planted.

Preparing the new Strawberry bed
Plenty of other jobs getting done today as well; compost made, preparing the slug traps using old beer from the nearby pub and digging up all the Sweet Potatoes to keep us supplied for many months !

Things are looking up in the egg department, the chooks have been recalcitrant in laying eggs, most of them moulting, but we are starting to get a few more each day, up from 1 a day to 3 or 4 !   We also have another young Rooster to kill, we'll get to that in the next couple days!
