It's going to be a warm summer

Dear Family & Friends

The temperature outside is soaring up and up each day...I'm glad that we have very thick three feet house mud walls, as it keeps our home cool inside...without the need of air conditioner!!

Finally my first ever Lupin plant and the joy of seeing it's bloom:)

Yet, one can't resist going out in the discover some new plants, get food harvest, and smell the abundance of flowers all around. Early morning and late late afternoon is the best time to enjoy the garden.

Quack and Quack are out to enjoy the murky pool, while the other Quack is keeping cool inside

Even our growing ducks are starting to feel the heat...but at least they have a murky little swimming pool to enjoy from time to time;P

Our intensive bio diversity vegetable garden

I'm not complaining....because with the warm temperature, everything seems to be taking off...everything is growing so fast... plenty of food to eat and harvest everyday:) The weeds are doing great too...well, it's not really a big deal...just pull them up from time to is also good food for the chickens, ducks and it keeps and helps make our soil healthy too:)

Hope you are enjoying the season...yes, do enjoy them for they don't really last long.
