This week we welcomed our new Grandson as he settled in back at home with his family!!
He shall be known as "Micro-Man" a brother for the twins "Little Miss" and "Mini-Man".


When we loaded up our trailer with all the twins' gear (toys, clothes, cloth nappies...) we tried to smuggle them on board too. They had been staying at a regional town as the township they live in is too remote to have babies delivered at the local  hospital.


With the approach of ANZAC Day (April 25th) here in Australia it's time to harvest any frost sensitive plants...right on cue our seven day forecast has a 1C morning listed this week! So the frosts are getting closer.


The Rainbow Mixed Silverbeet (Chard) has grown well all summer long this year.
