The dogs have been helping in the garden, but alas they seem to have no interest in reducing the snail population and we have had to resort to beer traps. Luckily the slimy fellows don’t seem to be too picky and are happy with the cheap stuff.
Three haughty Isa Browns now call our garden their home, Beven calls them ‘Tasty’ ‘Chicken’ and ‘Nuggets’… I do not. Dylan went all out on their weathboard chook tractor – the perfect size to fit over our veggie beds (when those guys aren’t causing mischief free ranging!). These happy hens christened the tractor almost immediately with this lovely brown egg.
Mum helped with some new garden beds whilst Dylan encouraged his new Goji Berry to grow up the side of an old crib. The broccoli and cabbages have been soaring courageously upwards and some herb seeds are waiting to surface in a polystyrene box. In another garden not too far away with a matching box my parents’ two dogs are being strange.
