The Beauty of Life…

What’s in our gardens and orchard this week… As we walk around after the rain, we revel in the life that we have been given.  So many provisions are there for us to enjoy and our focus on the beauty around us strengthens our health and our stamina so that we can withstand the challenges that present.

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them”  – Henri Matisse

What’s in our garden this week…

The summer rains could not have come at a better time for our garden!  After a recent dry spell with temperatures reaching 40 degrees, our garden was just crying out for some good soaking rains.  Some of the vegetables that will really benefit from the rain are the cucumbers, zucchini and our cherry tomatoes – all the hand watering in the world does not feed the plants like the nitrogen rich rains.  Here’s some snapshots of what we’re currently growing…

The Garlic Season has arrived!

P1070142 2 e1481836238957 - The Garlic Season has arrived!

It’s garlic harvesting time on the DEOSA Family Farm and it is a family affair –  after all, many hands make light work and there are hundreds of bulbs to clean and hang!  We’ve had a good growing season and are very happy with the quality and quantity, this being the 5th year that we have been developing our own strain of the classic “purple” garlic.   After 9mths in the ground, our garlic is ready to dry and its strong scent flavours the air.  Not long now until we will have it for sale…
