I see it’s been a while since I last posted which is mainly due to us being away again.
Sadly while we were away our oldest chicken Artemesia (AKA Arte), left us for the great chook perch in the sky.
The ever reliable broad beans have gone from small plants to barely constrained in 6 weeks, as you can see from the photos.
The other half of the team has been experimenting with kang kong/water spinach. We got a bunch from the markets and stuck a few stems in a bottle of water. Just over one week later it has roots galore!
We will be planting it out very soon. Although it is a tropical plant our summer’s in Canberra are hot enough for us to get a useable crop in one season. These will be a great addition to our stir fries.
