On a lovely Spring Day............

You just want to get outside and into the garden after that long winter with cold winds!

I decided the silverbeet that is now a couple years old and growing in a bunch in the vegie garden could come out....... And since it's mostly used for the chooks, it could maybe go in front of their yard.............
 
So out came the matic and the shovel...... I was surprised just how much was in the clump......
But at least it looks good now, and the chooks can nibble at it through the fence, and best of all, I don't need to head to the vegie garden first and then to their pen!
 
Cause that all meant Pete was kept busy fixing up taps and watering connections to ensure all the garden gets watered over the next few months........
 
 
Also managed to pull this little bird bath out that was hidden away in some bushes and fix it up where it can be used............. one of the local kookaburras has already been down to check it out this afternoon............. I'll have to share that photo another time since it's taken 4hrs to download these photos already......... ahhh the joys of living where you can't get good internet access!

What a great idea planting the silverbeet so the chooks can peck at it!

Oh Sharm, it still puts me off balance to think you are going into spring and we are going into fall.

How nice you will be in the garden for the summer. I love gardening and such.

Have a good time!!!
