Not a lot going on at Cabbage Tree Farm at present, sorry for the lack of posts of late.
The veg garden is a bit neglected, I need to get in there and clear up big time and prepare the beds for some winter veg.
Getting some chillies, coriander, other herbs; the galangal is settling in and putting out new shoots, and the artichokes are sprouting new foliage. My Italian Flat beans are flowering so shouldn't be far off now. A few onions still to harvest. Kumara seem to be doing well. We've had a handful of tomatoes, I think the shield bugs are doing their best to finish off the last remaining ones and I haven't been very organised getting out there with the neem oil. Boy we've had a lot of shield bugs this year.
On a more positive note, the chickens have started laying again. Today we got 3 eggs, 2 blue ones from the Araucanas and one (a brown egg) from an unidentified chook. A couple of the hens are moulting, one is still being mummy to 4 chicks and I've got one broody.
The weather is cooling down a bit now thank goodness, plus we've had a bit of rain which is much needed.
