Phew! I've been a bit quiet on the blog while I tackle my first full-time semester of uni in over 25 years! It's been a great big learning journey. I have just a few weeks to go before a long summer break.
When I'm not at my desk working or studying, I'm trying to pop out to my garden regularly, because it's so calming for my mind. And harvesting great big bowlfuls of produce is also appealing... we have snowpeas, shelling peas, a couple of varieties of green beans, some broccoli, tons of leafy greens - Asian greens, lettuces, kale, spinaches, several edible flowers, gooseberries, mulberries, black sapote, chokos, lemons and lots of herbs in abundance right now. The chickens are also laying, and two hens had chicks recently. So life on the farm feels great!

Zeah and I did a Wild Weed Walk the other weekend. We both loved it! I used to take my bigger kids to lots of gardening workshops and tours, community gardens, seed savers meetings and more. I love including my children in my passions. Zeah now proudly points to all the weeds in our lawn and gardens and informs everyone of their edibility!
