Day Thirty Two

Two exciting things are happening in our garden this weekend ...

One, the bean plant has a bud on it ...
... and the other exciting thing is the chili bud has opened and it is a beautiful white flower.

Today we also found lots of naughty caterpillars. We pulled them off and fed them to the chooks but Mum wants to know a way to keep creepy crawlies off our veggies without spraying them with chemicals? Does anyone know a way?

The guinea pigs love bits and pieces from the garden that we are not going to eat.

Day twenty four ...

Today, day twenty four, we have got four exiting things to tell you! Number one is that dads chili plant has got buds ready to be flowers! Number two is that we found a yellow lady bug on my strawberry plant.

Is that good to have a lady bug or not?
Next is that my capsicums on my capsicum plant are looking good and growing fast.Finally the peas are shooting up madly and are looking good too!
