Goat stalking!

Here is a little something to brighten up your day!…One of the hazards of veggie gardening 🙂

This happened after walking back from one of the Foraging courses with Martin and Riki from Curedeli

Life is never dull here at the nursery!

 

Summer time and the living is breezy

 February is the hottest month of our year!

The snakes and tortoises are wide awake. We are having to remove certain tortoises quite often from the veggie garden.Tortoise

The vegetables in the gardens quickly tend to bolt if not watered well enough, or get to dried up from

the South Easter who regularly makes her appearance. Like now. And yesterday. And probably tomorrow.

Luckily,  just around the corner we have a warm False Bay ocean for long delicious swims and an icy turquoise Atlantic Ocean around the other corner for screamingly refreshing  dips or exhilarating surfs.

Summer also brings us:

Warm magical evenings with clear starry skies, sweet fragrant juicy tomatoes and plump purple sticky figs from the garden, super productive bees buzzing amongst all the flowers and warm freckled faces and dirty sandy hands after a hard day of playing in the garden.

Hooray for summer time!

Old Mac Gray had a farm…E I E I O

Is it a nursery? is it a farm? ..Its Good Hope Gardens!!!!

  Meet Noot-Noot, the best mouser in the Deep South, possibly the world.

Mr. Jackson, the meanest Billy in town.

  Pretty maids all in a row…our four baby milking goats, the very shy one is hiding in the shadows and the super shy one ran into the bushes.

Pollox the friendliest old foxdog ever.

Jokes. We don’t have elephants.

But we do have chickens, chicks, ducks, roosters, more dogs, another cat, and a host of wildlife that would be very upset if we didn’t mention them in this post. You will just have to come and meet them yourself next time you visit us!
