I love it !!!!!! Nice job :)
I finished cutting back the ice plant in the labyrinth . I can say it is the first time in two years my gardens are weeded and look good. I think I love my chiropractor and physical therapist .
Up next cleaning the animal coops. The are embarrassing.

He is a piece of work. He plays in his water bowl with a toy ball. He take the ball up his ladders to his food bowl and fills it with water from the ball. I have zero idea why this nasty bird does not die from food poisoning At the end of the day his bowls are so gross! He also poops in the food bowl ON PURPOSE .He poops out of the bars on the dogs and on the grand kids. If it was not so nasty it would be hysterical. My husband hates him. I have never tried the corks will look for them when we go to a big town to shop. He has so many toys ,lots of different texture perches in different diameters.He is such a spoiled little nut.His cage is really big for his size .He does not talk but he mumbles all sort of things .

OMG so funny! the parrot that turns his toys into his b#tches! will never be able to look at any birds toys again without thinking of Chucky.. have you ever given him cork tops to chew on? I buy them on a piece of wire(old wine bottle cork that's been cleaned) for my birds, very messy but at least it keeps them busy. Lucky my two hasn't discovered the hump story..yet, they just get a bit agro when it's mating season. LOL maybe because they have enough "bird porn" looking out the windows, we feed about 300 wild birds and they are at it all the time-even got a yellow budgie that has turned wild that come & feed. Must say it's a wonderful sight when they fly in twice a day :)

Chucky is still invlove with the toys in his cage. I take them out and he plucks. I leave them in and he humps them off Silly bird is a wreck. I tried again to get him on to other food.He would rather starve. He will not go near it. If I put it on top of his regular food he wont even move it off to eat. SO I am guessing he will have a shorter balder life then I was hoping for.He is very sweet away from his cage but in it he is a bear .He looks better with just hump feather damage so I let him have his toys LOL
I will go look at the coop. Sounds like a chicken tractor.

Awww, I wish you could. We are allowed to keep up to 6 hens, I'm only planning on keeping 4 should have a enough eggs for own use. Eggs and manure, bliss! I have a pic on my FB page of the coop I'm planning to build, very practical and two people can move it around the yard. I have huge lawns they can fertilize emoticon

How is your Chucky doing? My two are simply loving the place, Billy Boy has become so loving no biting anymore(touch wood) he hasn't done it since we moved!(over a year)

I am letting my chickens dwindle down. The feed is so expensive here. I could never get the customers happy always too many eggs or not enough. I finally just gave up LOL We are down to about 10 birds. Even with 100 they did not keep the bugs out of the yard.They also dig up plants. I have heard Guineas are better to garden with BUT they are very noisy. Wish I could mail you my extra coop it is not being used anymore ;)

Diatoms are great, just a bit pricey here-I use it on my dogs it's a must as they are on a raw food diet. In they garden I do companion planting, it works for most bugs just those damn butterflies laying eggs everywhere. I do realise it will take some time before balance is restored in my garden, I'm giving it 3 years to fall into place. Already the ants are less, they were everywhere!
So looking forward to the day I have chickens emoticon been preparing hubby and putting money away for the chicken coop build...soon very soon!

I am glad you saw the pictures. :) That section is going to be an herb fairy garden. My veggie plants are in a different section of the yard.My squash seeds are just starting to break through the soil. As are some of the herbs I have out there. I have never tried cabbage. But have done broccoli and Brussels sprouts. I use plastic knives and spoons to write down what I am planting out there a
It seems to work pretty good.
I use DE on the plants I see with bugs. If I can hand pick worm I will feed them to the chickens. If things are real bad I use a powder called 7 it is flea powder. It washes off preyty good. Hard to go all organic and get any food SIGH!

I saw the pic's on FB! LOve your herb pots and the little painted signs. I need to make some signs for my brassicas - so lost at the moment, totally clueless as to what is what with my cabbages/broccoli/cauliflowers & Brussels sprouts! Apart from the red cabbage I have no idea where's what, I will have to wait 'till they start making heads. At the moment all I seem to do is squash worms, so gross and I feel so guilty but it's now a fight for survival in my little paradise emoticon

It gets crazy here too if you do not keep an eye on it. But once started it uses very little water and does the job. We transplant it around the yard in place we want shade or more privacy.

Bamboosa is GREAT! and in your dry climate it won't get out of hand. I planted them in a brick planter box on the pool side for privacy and shelter against the winds. You just gave me a FANTASTIC idea, I have noticed mine made babies so I'm going to plant a hedge by my veg garden! Will need to make sure it does not take over the whole of the back garden, this bamboo can grow like weed if they get water, must say I like the fact that I can cut my own bamboo stakes...money back in my pocket again.

The winds here are terrible too. I planted bamboo to go on the winiest side of the garden. It also offers a little shade in the latter afternoon for those long hot summer days
Even though the grand girls are just 16 miles down the road I do not seem to see them very often. We work weekends and they are busy doing work and school during the week. So we are regulated to school holidays and over school breaks when we can coordinate .NO FUN!

The strong winds are really playing havoc in my garden, I need to MacGyver something I can move around. Maybe a shade cloth on trellises that I shove in the ground. My poor strawberries are taking a beating and these plants don't come cheap here.

Bummer about the veg eating critters, not much you can do apart from heavy duty fencing and then they can still dig under. Unfortunately planting double doesn't solve the problem as they eat everything! Reminds me a bit of way back when my mom used to farm with chickens, at night the dogs where tied on runners right around the cages to keep the "cats" away. Nasty jackals used to be so sly finding ways to get to the poor chickens, I don't think the dogs could ever safe guard them.

I worked in the veggies garden too. My tomatoes seedlings were getting to leggy so had to do something. Now will just pray there isn't another frost.
Lost an apple tree to a gopher :( so bummed it was all in bloom .We got some little apples from it last year. .I guess they just declared war. I will fight back !
Also got my seeds planted for herbs and greens :)
Hoping the row covers will help them grow. The past few years the critters have eaten the seedlings as soon as them emerged from the ground .

It's like our Kikuyu here, I hate that grass, once it's in between the buffalo lawn it will kill it off.
You should try vinegar undiluted - pour or spray on and make sure the sun gets to it, just watch out it will kill all other plants to - I use it on the paving to kill off silly weeds.

Spend a fortune shopping for plants Sunday past, I have about 80 plants to get into the ground this weekend. My back & knees are going to be finish!

We have had a very mild winter and had a lot of rain in the Fall. Really gave the weeds a huge hold. The First Day of Spring is around March 20th .Bermuda grass is a night mare. It sends out tendrils above and below the dirt that take hold where ever they can it is really invasive and difficult to get rid of.I am always doing battle with it.

Tell me about it...even with all the gardening in my "new" garden(moved in end Feb this year) I picked up about 2 kilos this winter.
I walk my dogs every morning and spend every free minute toiling in the garden, not much time for anything else. Summer of course will be spend in the pool emoticon if I manage to get the thing fixed-major renovations need to be done there, planning to make it smaller and have it fibre glassed. I enjoy doing water aerobics so a "splash" pool is good enough. My other passion is Pilates but again time always seems to get the better of me emoticon

Summer is winding down for us here in NY State; soon it will be fall. I don't look forward to winter again, really will have to watch it this year in order to keep up with my fitness goals. That is when the pounds love to creep back on!
I do aerobics DVD's at home if I can't get out to walk or to the gym. My favorite tapes are Gilead, he does things that are helpful for arthritis, which is an issue of mine.
Do you use any at home work out equipment?

Never give up!

I enjoyed some quality time after my aerobics workout with Cosmo; he likes to sit on the top of the shower area and then...new fun for him; an old 3 drawer chest with goodies for a parrot to chew IN THE DRAWERS...I open one, he climbs down, and proceeds to throw everything out, then chew on cardboard left inside. He emerges, saying "HELLO...!" when it's time to go back. (Also says "Wanna go back")
He's such a treat to spend time with!

Never give up!

OK well that's easy; I am good at huddling then. I live in NY State, it is very rural and this morning I saw a deer as I came across our yard. I was putting peanuts out for the blue jays who insist on them every morning. This particular doe is very curious about our cats, I have a photo of her trying to come nose to nose with one, although he was not quite brave enough to allow it. My Cosmo has a 'porch cage' and sits outside while I work in the yard. you can hear him all over the property, he is a good whistler!

Oh thanks for responding Hannah! I'm sorry you lost your Amazon. They are wonderful birds, so intelligent! I have an African Grey and he is my buddy. We communicate constantly.
I'm still wondering what the 'huddle' challenge means. What is a huddle?

I have two senegals, both males, love them dearly. They keep me busy and I'm very protective, maybe a bit over the top - I lost my Amazon 3 years ago and still miss my Sonny Boy.
