Autumn garden update 1

Just a short update on the autumn garden bed from the previous post. The seeds I sowed have begun to germinate! The above are dwarf broccolis… And then below we have some sugar snap peas. There’s also a pic of the yellow capsicum plant (there are also three red capsicum […]

Autumn garden 🌱 🍅 🫑

It’s been a while since I’ve written about my garden beds. With the temperatures quickly dropping (particularly where I am now, which tends to be colder than Melbourne), I decided to remove some of the remaining tomatoes and start on the autumn crop. Tomato season wasn’t the best this year. […]

Fish update 🐟

Well, I couldn’t wait any longer. The water quality hadn’t changed in a week, Miele the Hoover fish was looking a bit bored and scared of our presence, so we decided to just get more friends. They’re your standard Leopard Danios (as opposed to the Zebra ones, which are striped), […]

🌱 #5

Gee, these plants are going gangbusters at the moment! Every day there’s a new flower, or a bud, or leaves… it’s a daily ritual to see how they’re going. I’m really looking forward to seeing actual growing ‘fruit’- at this rate I don’t think I’ll have to wait much longer!
