The days are just ticking by, especially now that the days are becoming shorter. Jobs are slowly being done in the garden, like the blue pots above. They have been moved back against the fence. It has really opened up the yard and the boys are enjoying the extra room for bikes and running.
The chook pen is all but down now. A cube like frame will be made out of RHS 1″ steel. 2m high and 3x3m (roughly) around. Wire mesh will cover it all over and an outward swinging door will be built that will be covered in mesh. It will be like a chook prison. Our neighbours were as surprised as us to be told about the chooks deaths. Our elderly neighbour said ‘No, but we live in town!’ (The dead grass looking thing in the picture is lemon grass, it’s not dead but it will have to be moved)
The broccoli and cauliflowers are growing away happily. There has been afew cabbage white butterfly eggs but I have been squishing them when I see them, so no grubs yet. I now have the problem of where will to put the cabbages and other cauliflowers in? I haves some room out the front. It just needs weeding first. Lots of weeding….
And this is the very top of the Oak tree. Lovely rusty orange leaves that fall. Everywhere. They are crunchy underfoot and cover everything. I love autumn in my yard!
