Wet Wet Wet

Since about 2am yesterday morning we have had a reasonable amount of rain. This hasn’t stopped Jenny from standing out in it sheltering her little brood. They are nearly always on the go looking for food and are starting to leap up onto higher objects to perch.
Whilst so much rain at this time of the year is not what the farmers want, it has given the garden a good drink, and with the apricot, nectarine, passionfruit, the figs, tamarilloes, tomatoes, corn, babaco, strawberries, sunflowers, grapes, pepino, cucurbits and raspberries all in the process of forming fruit and seeds it will give them a bit of a boost.

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.
