'Still planting after all this rain and more to come!
Wombok, lettuce varieties, Silver beet, rainbow chard, english spinach. ceylon spinach, Leeks, escallots, garlic, garlic chives, beans, snow peas, and I've been to the local fruit tree nursery in Kyogle and gone a bit bonkers with citrus and subtropical apples.
Next month? - sweet spuds, swedes, and lots of cabbage , broccoli, cauli and Capsicum varieties ready for those slow-cooked meals in winter!
Time to lift and seperate crowns of rhubarb.

STILL raining... duck45.gif
so, back onto the paddocks today with the cultivator.
Gramma, other pumpkins, and I reckon it's gonna be a great Jam fruit season so in go the seeds for Cape Gooseberry, Rosella, and Jam melon. I've picked up some Cherry Guava plants on ebay, so I'm keen to see how they go.
Guess who's gonna be a muddy boy then? happy_duck

Ah...no. Like all /most farmers...now is the time to PLANT. It's been too damn hot for anything til now and we've only been harvesting melons and sweet spud for the most part since december.
No fruit to share even...too many damn 'foxes flying in each night and screaming at each other over what fruit was left from the previous night.
Easter is here for about 40 of us. Family, old friends and such to help me celebrate staying above ground for 50 years!
- Lots o' chook, maybe a mongrel Gander that likes to ambush me at the water trough, some cheap prawns i scored in brissie last week(frozen broken med kings ...$45 /5kg) and that's good enough for us.
Maybe we can organise a gathering of nearby chook and feathered friend fanciers in the coming months when i have something to share from our own harvest. We could swap notes, eggs, and stories tall and straight? Maybe somewhere like Ballina or such?
I don't show birds as such,but might consider bringing a few less common ones to a gathering. Some phoenix, scots dumpies, japs maybe?

any interest?
