I'm restarting this blog as Google finally re-established connections so I can comment on the comments, amongst other things.
In the meantime Covid-19 has appeared, the world has changed and we are all being urged to "make a new normal" - whatever that means. Here on my little patch the chickens still lay eggs, the "pet" horse follows us around the place, the "new" cat supervises everything and I'm growing vegetables, tending fruit trees, sewing and doing other things that make me happy.
There is a native animal who has laid claim to this patch of land , and I'm happy to share it, and I think miss puss has already had an encounter or two with it and knows to leave it alone. Looking forward to a decrease in pest insects with the new resident arriving.
I'd be happy to have you join me whenever you have the time.

This problem can also occur when I try to comment on other people's blogs so I will not be commenting in the future but there are a few blogs I read. I have no inclination to start a blog with another blog provider.
Thanks to everyone who has read or commented on my blog over the years. I haven't decided yet if I will delete this blog.

People are enjoying their 3 day weekend.
I'm feeling depressed as my cat was bitten by a snake yesterday afternoon and died overnight at the veterinarian's.
Normally I try not to put private personal posts on my blog but in the last 6 months there's been the death of a family member and 2 family pets. It's a lot to cope with.
Thanks for your understanding if I'm not as frequent with my posts as I want to be.
We are going to miss your happy-go-lucky attitude.

I purchased some half price berry bushes a few weeks ago as they were old stock. A thornless blackberry, a raspberry and a blueberry. I began planting them into the gardens on Thursday. Home nurtured compost was dug into the soil, plants will be watered in with seaweed fertiliser and mulched with matured horse manure and straw. The pH in that garden usually averages 5.5 along the fence line so all the requirements for healthy growth should be met.
|Bed piled up and reinforced by wood beam.|
|Teasing out the roots was a challenge|
|Blueberry planted. Trench in front of bed was filled with aged horse manure.|
|Watered in and mulched. Remaining bushes will be planted in the next few days as now I am "bushed"!|
Looking forward to possibly harvesting some fruit this season.
