Princess Castle Update

Things were warm and pottery today. I put in some cabbage seedlings



And started tidying up the veggie bed. I am thinking snow-peas next.



This straw was carefully pre treated by the ducks while it was in their house, and is now being used to mulch the raspberries.




And here is another update on Mr Bacon Avocado. As you can see, he is going very very well in his little hessian house.

Looking very Bacon Avocado-ish.
Pre-treated straw if the answer, it works wonders on most things.Nice Sunday.

Mrs D

The photo of your new bike against the straw balewall is fantastic, I like the one with the chickens in it as well - they look like they were taken in some French provincal town. The light, colours and composition are excellent - very very nice

cheers

i know I know!!!!!! I FULLY intended to come MR BVVF, but Mr Duck took the car to watch the international squash tournament and 4 hours later he was having so much fun he phoned and asked if he could stay longer as the mens finals was coming up and he sounded so happy so I let him keep the car and I stayed home....!!!!!
