Help! Somethings eating my herbs!


It's been a hot and sunny day today at Tubledown Farm. The hay field is now up to my waist in height. Several orange-tipped and blue butterflies have flitted past me, although sadly they had no time to stop and let me photograph them.


I was busily trying to snap a greedy bee on the Thalictrum when Stilton rushed up to me.


Stilton the incredible gardening cat wasn't too pleased. Apparrently he had warned her to stay away from the herb bed...

That cheeky little Amber was up to no good!

There was nothing I could do except put her into solitary confinement and reach for the bottle! My poor herb bed.


I'm starting to worry that putting the new veg plot next to the goat house wasn't such a good idea...

Your veg patch has come on really well!

Poor Amber, being foisted off with milk when all she wanted was some nice fresh greens.

The fennel is very tasty. I've been having home grown herb salads all week.

My first peas are ready too! When I finish getting the paths down I will take some photo's and do a veg patch progress update. :o)

Wow, you have a big property and i wonder how you were able to cope with all those work, vegies, goats, cats, etc, etc. We have goats, dogs, cats and chickens too, but ours is not as formal as yours. Of course we are in the tropics and we have different laws, but yours seem to be very delightful. Gardening seems to be so easy with you, while insects and predators seem to be big problems with me. hehe. thank you.
