School holidays have long gone, but they did involve a fair bit of yard work, as I promised the kids ;-).

Piles of sticks for bushfire cleanup.  We will run these through the mulcher (we need the mulch more than the environment needs the wood smoke from burning the piles).
















Strawberry patch planted – this involved sifting the sand to get the gravel out (yeah, that was pretty heavy, hard work); adding compost and mixing it in, then planting and watering/settling in with seaweed brew.  The strawberry plants were gifted to us from our neighbours – thanks so much Sue and David J!













And while we were there with the seaweed brew, I used it (in combo with some fish emulsion) to add some lovely nutrients to the fruit trees.

Because I love photos of our flowers for bees, here they are:













The bees are also loving the leek flowers. 

 













We are pretty happy to be providing for our food producing friends J.
