Mantis On Lily.
A selection of some of the veggies and fruit harvested from the garden this month.
This particular pumpkin is called a Marina di Chioggia. First time I’ve had a go at growing this. The one on the right weighed on at 8.426 kgs. There are a few more still on the vine! So far I have counted 60 pumpkins of various varieties around the garden. What the heck I am going to do with all of them is anyone’s guess. But it’s great fun growing them.
Cooking Stirfry on the Stoep. Most of the veggies were from the garden. What a bonus!
Flycatcher with a bee. Seems a bit incongruous considering the bird’s name!
I always managed to spill a bit of petrol when filling the tank and even with a conventional funnel there was usually something to wipe up. But with this – no problemo!
You can see(I hope?) it’s a cut 2litre plastic milk bottle and the end fits perfectly into the tank. Built in handle, too! Not a drop of spillage!
Who’s a clever boy, then?
