Early August Update

Not much happening recently however, the aquaponics system is cycling nicely and the seedlings of lettuce, parsley and watercress are doing well and the fish doing fine.

I have not obtained any perch yet. Perhaps next week.

Small lemons forming on the lemon tree. Blossoms on the lime.

I put a heap of shredded paper in the chook pen to let them scratch it into the soil so that I can dig it out over the next few weeks to dress the garden.

Still getting a regular gift of two eggs a day which is keeping us from supplementing with market eggs.

The guinea pigs have returned from a few days away where they ate grass and were looked after indoors by my in-laws. Just as well as the weather has been windy, lots of frequent showers and even hail showers at the beginning of the week.

That is it for now.

About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.
