What’s in the Compost Heap?


This is Charlie, affectionately known as Charlie-Poe

Cat Curiosity

He’s discovered a noise in the compost heap


What could it be?

More Curious


Guess I’ll have to just wait and see…


We’ve dug a new bed near the kitchen door, I’m going to plant veggies and flowers in it. I want to utilize as much space as possible for growing our own vegetables. I’ve spoken to the kids about how I want to work in the garden and try to have a continuous supply of food, they seem keen to help. Yay!


Richard and Kye have set up a little camp site in the back garden, Kye’s been wanting to camp in the garden for ages, he’s SO excited it’s happening!

Green and Red Peppers

These are a few treasures from the garden. I really LOVE peppers and they’re so easy to grow.


Red Peppers


Have a lovely weekend.

Just a Little Guava


I was so excited to see that the little guava tree I bought over a year ago has started to bear fruit! When I was young, I lived in Port Elizabeth near the sea, we had a beautiful garden with two huge guava trees. All those memories from my childhood come flooding back just by seeing this tiny fruit starting to grow. We used to pick as many guavas as we could eating them right off the tree. My granny used to stew them and we’d eat them with homemade custard. So delicious! Our winters are quite cold here, so I’m really hoping this tree will survive, I thought planting the tree in a pot for now would be best and next summer we can transplant it into the ground.

Today has been a full day, Jenna and Erin wrote the last of their tests, their friends came over, Kye went to his swimming lesson, I managed to pop out to the health shop, came home and later fetched the girls from their science class. I can’t wait to sit down and knit a few rows on my knitting… It’s been a good day!

Hope your Monday is happy and productive.
