Close to the shortest day of the year we’ve discovered a hatch of 11 ducklings walking across a paddock. We moved them to a protective pen to keep them safe from predators.
Earlier in the day I captured some images of other things happening on the farm, such as these young citrus trees.
The garlic is starting to grow in the market gardens.
After four years we have our first avocado.
The broad beans are thriving in the cool weather.
Yakon is ready to harvest.

Beautiful nature (and others) at work. Hooray!
looks amazing. little treasures everywhere. In the photo of the broad beans what is the name of the dark green long leaf veg in the front I know its great animal fodder but I keep forgetting its name & have sooooo much trouble finding it.
That is a type of kale we call “Dinosaur Kale” because the leaf is like dinosaur skin. You may be thinking of dock?
Thankyou so much I love the name, I’ll write it down now & look into it some more. Thanks
YAY! First Avocado! Adorable ducklings!
