Gosh, the work load has definitely ramped up here at the farm. Spring irrigation of winter crops and preparing for the tomato season flushing tapes. It is great to see the worms have been at work in our soils over the autumn winter period. Lex is really having a dog’s life – enjoying the mud and water then lazing on her sun lounge having veranda time in between. Tony enjoys coming in from the paddock to his choice of a pasta meal from our range which keeps him going til the next water shift.
Over the winter Andre and Jason have been busy supplying farm plantation firewood in bags to make those cold days much more pleasurable for everyone. We appreciated our pile at home, particularly on those frosty nights. Also, an extra bit of exciting news, Andre has been awarded a Nuffield scholarship. He intends to investigate various uses for our crop residues.
Tony is having Auntie Rene’s garden vegetable pasta sauce with spaghetti tonight. Pasta is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, which provide a slow release of energy combined with the nutritional value of tomatoes and vegies. One of Tony’s favourite meals.
