4th of June: Welcoming some winter rain!

The winter rains bring so much life into our gardens. Filling the creeks, streams and replenishing the ground water.

In the vege garden we have a change of season. The tomatoes, chilli and basil are finishing up, and now is the time to plant peas, root crops and leafy greens.

This saturday the 5th of June is World Environment Day, and it is good to reflect on the importance of a healthy environment, and what we can do to help. Unsure what you can do? A great way to help the local environment is to plant a tree! https://www.worldenvironmentday.global/
