I haven't been too good at updating my blog lately.

Here's a small update.

We are harvesting pumpkins at the moment, Butternut pumpkins, they grow like weeds, we counted at least 20 pumpkins on I can't remember how many vines. We have a couple of Jap pumpkins on one vine as well. To look at the Jap pumpkin you would think there was at least 3 or 4 vines there. It has taken over the back yard.

The chooks are laying 2-3 Eggs per day. We are happy with this, we sold our first dozen and a half the other day. If we can sell 5 dozen a month this will pay for their feed and we are happy with that. We only eat a few, and we get enough for our consumption and we keep our family and friends happy.

Steve is waiting for the corn to ripen at the moment, we have about 30 cobs so I hope they don't all ripen at once.

A couple of Sundays ago we planted, Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, carrots, beetroot in the garden. Unfortunately it looks like the snails have eaten them, we will have to plant more, we are just waiting for the seedlings to be strong enough to plant tin the ground.

Well I think that's all for now.
