Well, another cold day here is ONC – but finally the sun peeked out this afternoon. Here is a little look at where the duck herder can be found on a sunny winter day. We will never get scurvy over winter while we can grow lettuces, baby spinach and tatsoi in my little glass house. It is also a good place to put Byron in his little rooster box over night when he is visiting, so that we can only just hear him yodeling at 4.30am. Speaking of Byron, he has gone home to Jugiong, and we MISS him. I miss his crowing. I really do!
In other news, here is an avocado update. Definitely not thriving in our frosty winter, even with the avocado shanty but if you look REALLY closely, you will see a few surviving leaves on the Bacons. I am too upset to show any pictures of the Gwens. (you can see one very sorry sample in the background) Very sad indeed. Oooh well. I will be patient and hang in there - even if they die back a little each winter, hopefully when they are bigger they will cop it sweet!
