We have to cover these beauties very well ( I use a net from a babies crib ) as all sorts of wild life love to eat them even the chooks !!! blueberry pancakes for desert tonight …..:)
Our lonely hen (we lost 5 to a fox or dog a while ago) is clucky and the Kids put a dozen fertilized eggs under her on Saturday ( only one breakage ) so hopefully we will have babies in 20 days or so….
While on a walk around the property today I stumbled upon a nest with two eggs. The tree is a Hoop Pine that I had planted a couple of years ago the nest belongs to a Eastern Yellow Robin.
The count is in and there was 7kg of Quinces came off the broken branch! I made a pot of Davidson Plum Jam ( had about 750 grams of plums ). The Bananas are ripening and delicious great colour, different to shop bought .
We welcomed 4 new girls( Araucana) to our chook house they are settling in. We are hopping they will start to lay before Winter and the exciting thing is that they lay blue eggs ! I’m guessing that we will have one with blue eggs and three with maybe green ? My theory is their leg colour will determine the egg colour ..
