Tropical Heritage Garden Diary:
Chickens seem to be surviving ok
and Butlig as well!
but Eggplants are still struggling in the stump patch
and more Bean Plants than Beans....
with a few Grains growing
But most of the garden is a bit under the weather.....
(and the camera is suffering from condensation in the lens too)
Butlig fully Recovered from operation?
Suture looks clean -and post-operative lump is almost gone
Still not much growing here
and perhaps mostly weeds growing here
but paths and edges have been weeded
Funny, how the weeds grow so much faster than
Butlig's lump seems to be growing again
Perhaps caused by (another) recent fall while playing
...and still growing
filled with soil and newly planted
Chives, Garlic and Tarragon plus a few seeds
Not much germinating under this net....
.....So moved it to here
....and sown with various vegetable seeds
Not much growing here either.....
But we keep trying
Including the recently composted patches
Okra, Turmeric, Ginger, Sinkemas, Beans, etc....
....and are sometimes successful!
Resown with Vegetable seeds mixed with Compost and
Extra protection added against Chickens
Work started on the new pig pens
Already signs of life here....
So these will be forced to fend for themselves
Meanwhile, work continues on the new pig pens
Pig pens nearing completion
....and Butlig's hernia gets bigger too
.....but who's been digging up the herb garden?
We explore the possibility of buying
piglets from a neighbour
...and Butlig examines the new pig pens
Ducks are doing well
But perhaps Butlig somewhat less well
Although new Pig pens are now ready for occupancy
Hopefully it will spread naturally
...and two different types of beans
Tree Stump patch is doing quite well
And another patch is being developed
Cocoa Tree Flowering and Fruiting
New Seedlings planted in large stump patch
Still testing the pig pens
...and drainage system needs repairing
Things that go bump in the night!
Tuko -fallen from ceiling -possibly during a fight
Butlig decides that back home is better!
but Night Mysteries continue.....
Where did the mess on the balcony come from?
Not a clue to be found anywhere!
Final Touches to New Pig pens
Painting with used oil to protect wood
From a Neighbour
To help limit inbreeding
...and New Piglets too

(and last night too)
Garden now nicely refreshed.....
.....and a rosy sunset to end the month
