The sun, the rain, tiny tomatoes and chickens.
I had to relinquish the camera back to sister # 1. So for todays story, you’ll just have to use your imagination for the images!
It was a hot, hot, week. The plants looked sad and dusty. Unfortunately it was also the week where the irrigation in a certain plant area decided not to work properly and we lost a lot of plants. They did not quite die, luckily, but will only look good again in a while. Thankfully a strange summer storm appeared, mist rolling down the mountain (picture it), bringing a brief respite from the suns harsh rays.
On the brighter side, two days ago, Mike the BB man was clearing out the Protea area and ripped out a pile (and I really mean a PILE) of baby tomato plants growing wildly there. (Imagine three buckets full of baby tomatoes) So, tomato tart for all!!! (Imagine, a sumptuous mouth-watering tomato tart – crispy pastry, melted cheese and fresh origano on top, mmm..)
Apart from never wanting to see another baby tomato for a long while (only so much amazing tart one can eat) the Big Move is happening. Phase 1 starts today…Ownerlady begins her move – exciting changes. Our turn next week maybe – just hope the chickens can deal with the stress of it all…they really are pea-brained. Have visions of them wandering back to their old roost wondering why it’s so drafty.
Heres a photo I took a while ago of Kingoftheplayground having a chicken of a time:
Have a great weekend!!!
