Chooks and Vegies

Big Ears and Moleen

It is a beautifull winters day here in Geelong, so I let the girls, Big Ears and Moleen, out for a bit to eat weeds and bugs.

This broccoli's main head has been harvested, and the offshoots are starting to grow, a good way to extend the growing season of your plants. This is backyard farming, not agriculture.

This cauliflower is nearly ready to eat. As it started to 'head' up I tied the leaves together to prevent discolouration and spoiling, but the cauli still poppped out a bit. Better eat it tonight. The snow peas are growing well, I had to put a collar around the seeds to protect them from those damm slugs. The other reason to let out the chooks, they love slugs and snails.
