I went out to turn the irrigation on in the veggie garden and it all looked so pretty that I went back in to get my camera.
It's been another scorcher of a day, so much so that I gave up in the garden about mid day.
This is the veggie garden, some things are coming to an end, like the gem squash, the vine is still growing but it's looking very mildewy now. The sweetcorn is long gone and the yard long beans are somewhat past their best. However the tomatoes are still going strong, the chillis are going to be spectacular, I think. I'm going to take out one of the courgettes tomorrow - each of them have three crowns now and have taken over!
My aubergines are growing quickly, finally, but I think I can only see one tiny aubergine so far.
I love my veggie garden, I spend more time in here than the rest of the farm put together.
Aubergine = Eggplant
Courgette = Zucchini
Yard Long Beans = Snake Beans
The cows came over to see what I was up to. The one at the front, that's white with brown spots? That's Spotty - Yes, I know terribly original - but he is the most affectionate, tame boy we've ever had. His favourite thing is head scratches or eating your t-shirt, shorts, jeans, anything really, so long as it's clothing. I'm trying to persuade Lloyd to keep him, my head knows he will go with the rest when the time comes but my heart wants him to stay.
And remember yesterday, I said Rachel and Sheba are never more than a few feet apart - here's the proof! They wanted to join in the fun.
