Harvest Monday

One of my chickens started laying this week! It is lovely to have super fresh eggs again. A while ago I posted about my chickens, and how they all have some issue or another. My rooster was very small, had no tail and didn't crow, and I am pleased and a little sad to say that he has moved onto a new home. He grew into a very healthy bird and started crowing, and as I live in the suburbs he had to go! I gave him to a couple who wanted a rooster to protect their small chicken flock, and I hope he will be happy there.

I have also been harvesting spinach, Chinese spoon cabbage, tokyo bekana, basil, rocket, coriander, ruby streaks mustard, carrots, mini capsicums, red russian kale, baby cos lettuce, silverbeet and green beans.

I've become more interested in growing flowers recently, particularly ones that work well as companion plants such as the calendula seen here.

Also, my boyfriend and I are about to start building an aquaponics system! Stay tuned! 

Head over to Daphne's Dandelions to see what other people are harvesting.
