Kalgoorlie St permablitz begins…


We finally got out into the front yard on Saturday to begin the new vegie patch in earnest. The plan includes ripping up a 4m x 5.9m patch of buffalo lawn to put in three new garden beds. We’ll also be putting in a frog pond around the corner of the house with watercress, water chesnuts and an edible rockery garden, plus another compost heap and chooks!

I ordered a brand new aluminium coop (the Chicken Castle Deluxe!!) from Royal Rooster in SA which I hope will be delivered next week. Spent a fortune on it but we’re thinking of it as a long-term investment and hope that aluminium won’t deteriorate like wood. Henry is very excited about the chickens. I’ve told him we’ll go up to the Swan Valley Egg Farm when we get the coop and he can pick his own chicken and give her a name. He talks about it all the time but hasn’t come up with a name yet. Not sure he really gets it yet…
