My name is Charlotte, sometimes known as Ms Lottie, occasionally as The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady. This is my blog, where you'll find me writing a lot about my quilting and textile arts and a little about my family's life in a small seaside town in New Zealand. Haere mai!
This is a fish bin standing in as a wheeless wheelbarrow. Fish bins are quite big (in case you were wondering about scale). I could fill this six times over and not make a dent in the wilderness that is my vege garden. In reality, I filled it once and then tipped that to the chickens and they didn't ask for more.
This is the wilderness that is my vege garden. Buckwheat and cauliflower in the front, doing a sterling job of hiding the gone-to-seed kale, lettuce, swede.....well, gone-to-seed everything.
At least my slug patrol enjoys the wilderness - better habitat for all things slimy and crawly.
Ahhh! A much more demure, restrained, orderly garden. This one was my rooster pen. They did a fine job of weed killing, fertilising and digging over. I think I'll re-hire them next season. They have a much better work ethic then I do.
