Chicken induced tourettes

Hi All, I was just hanging out over the deck rail muttering expletives at one of our chickens. Her name is Minnie, not after the mouse of American fame but after the Minx of U.K. comic fame. Minnie the Minx was a horror of a child who spent most of her time terrorising the neighbourhood….

Not dead, just busy as all get out

Hi All, You may have wondered why everything has been very quiet on the blogging front on Serendipity Farm well truth be known, Steve and I have been taking advantage of the sunny weather and our 6 weeks off from TAFE (college) to throw ourselves headfirst and upside down into tidying up the property and…

Tamar Valley-Sidmouth Sunny Sunday

Hi All, Well another Sunday has ebbed and flowed under the life bridge and we find ourselves contemplating our navels on Monday. That means there are only 2 weeks to “C” day and that will have a lot of people in a flap but we are enjoying the summer, doing what we like in the…

Hi-de-ho it’s Sunday again

Hi All, Well as the title of this blog post alludes to, it’s Sunday again. That means I either sloth around reading or lazing around in a hammock or I decide to take a few photos and update my long suffering blog. Steve had a chat to a friend the other day who mentioned that…

One Sunday

Hi All, It’s a magic summers day in Sidmouth Tasmania and the temperature is approximately 21C so it’s cool indoors and the sun is performing its magic out of doors. I have been attempting to walk Earl a bit further than I usually do in order to have him knackered out when we head back…

How does your garden grow?

Hi All, Well our garden is growing particularly well thanks to a spate of hot weather that we have been having recently combined with the fridge wicking potential that has kept the veggies happily growing with no wilting despite some seriously hot sunshine outside. I wanted to show you how Narnia is going and so…

The post where we survive Christmas…just…

Hi All, I just thought I would take a small break from “doing everything all of the time” to share a few photos of how the 14 fridge wicker beds look now that they are covered with netting. We are winding down from our very first all vegan Christmas that coincided with Christmas Eve and…

Summer has finally landed

Hi All, Well it’s been another busy fortnight or so here on Serendipity Farm. Steve and I have been working hard to get everything sorted out in the garden and our latest task was to build a structure around the fridge wicking beds to protect the veggies inside them from possum attack. So far, the…

Warning. Image intensive post AHOY!

Hi All, Well what has happened since we last met? Well it feels like a year ago as we have been so very busy. We have filled most of the fridge wicking beds with soil from the back of Sanctuary, we have ravaged Sanctuary and turned her into a fruit and nut garden (and edible…

The joy you can find in a broken fridge.

Hi All, Well I am back for another swing, much like my fellow compatriots ACDC. My “swing” involves more fridge wicking and some photos to share with you of the state of Serendipity Farm of late. The long damp winter that we are still being influenced by (more rain today as I type this) has…

Plans and processes

Processes towards change The processes that form our lives come about entirely by choice. We choose to embrace or stand back from each moment of our lives and sometimes you just have to step out in faith when you really don’t want to. This is most pertinent to what we are doing here on Serendipity…
