Well it looks like the gardens survived us being away, there are a few plants that look like they have had their leaves nibbled on but nothing major. Still can't see any bugs or grubs on them but there must be something out there. Wait 'til I get my new glasses, then they won't be able to hide from me.
The grass needs mowing but that's nothing new, it always needs mowing. We are still getting tomatoes but I don't think they'll last much longer. Heaps of capsicum. The chokos are all over the ground. No flowers on the peas or broad beans yet.but the cabbages that survived are coming on and we should be able to start picking them in a couple of weeks.
We still have plenty of stuff growing to not need to buy any vegetables for the next month or so so that's a good thing. Everything needs weeding though, I will do some of that over the weekend.
We are eating oranges and will be for the next couple of months. We are still getting strawberries, the pepino bushes are full of fruit. Indian guavas are ready. Passionfruit are ripe and dropping of the vines. Way too many lemons.
The freezers are full of meat, the dam is full of marron, the chookpens are full of chooks that can be culled at any time...and that will be soon if they don't keep laying. We are getting enough eggs for us but the saleable ones have dropped off.
All in all I think we could live on what we have here for the rest of the year. I love that!
