You May have heard of the Carrot Detective…

He get’s to root of every case.

Okay so I’m terrible at ‘Dad jokes’.

But I loved harvesting our little crop of carrots and a few new potatoes that randomly popped up. We have worked hard at some of our raised beds and these guys loved our old sandpit shells that we turned into raised beds. Our bok choy and radishes also loved it- I think it may have been the sunshine. 🙂

Needless to say, the carrots did not last long, between barbecued maple carrots, raw munched carrots, soups and curries we loved having so many home grown carroty friends.

We have also been working on writing with Dancing Girl. I think she’s doing a great job. She loves to copy the words we have written down and is slowly learning how to spell three letter words.

February’s Child…

is full of grace….

Actually that is Tuesday’s child.

But never mind, here’s a snapshot of our Fabulous February…

Aside from going back to work after our summer vacation, 😦 we had lots of fun in the garden this month.

My favourite flowers decided to bloom- so sunny and bright, they always make you smile and I love to share my morning cuppa with them.

Something about those lazily put together flowers that still stand tall and strong despite the heat.

Dancing Girl loved to measure herself against the bush as we watched it pop up.

She also loved to dance on the quite Tassie Nanna made her. A lovely quilt for playing and picnics. Perfect weather for both.

It was also the perfect time for starting our worm farm, which was excitement plus for Dancing Girl, who loved helping to set it up and check on the worms.

It is something we have been wanting to do for a while. It will hopefully add extra nutrients to our composting and garden beds.

Considering the amount of fresh produce we eat, since I’m vegetarian, we are enjoying watching it break down.

Do you have a worm farm?
