No update or stories to tell. Someone asked about my garden and I thought I'd send along some photos. I chased of a goat today, so it's only a matter of time before they get it all. Munch, munch, munch.
But I'm enjoying new green beans and baby beets and delicious gleanings of beet greens, Swiss chard, and African spinach (amaranth). My first zinnia of the season is almost open and it's a lovely, vibrant fuscia.
I'm gaining a bit of attention from passer-byers, as the garden produces, which is what I'd hoped. I can't share my gardening methods if no one is interested. People are generally plenty happy to see a producing garden, but it's hard to hook them in the initial stages (read: when it's time to DIG).
Here's a shot of mama and baby chick. She's down to six live chicks now, the other 12 having fed the resident mongooses. (Mongeese?). She seems to do just fine defending the six chicks now though.
And here's a shot of one of my recent sunsets. The one consistent happiness for me in summer South Africa: an amazing and dramatic African sky!
