dodging tennis and finding a frog

i snuck out, to escape wimbledon on the tv, one afternoon this week and spent some happy time picking fruit.

and finally got to meet the frog that has moved into our pond.

cammomile for everyone

i made lots of cammomile tea this week. a big bunch had self seeded in the greenhouse - making it smell divine everytime we went in to water the tomatoes.
i packaged up the flowers to keep me in tea for a while. i estimate it'll be about 100 teapots worth just from this bunch, at a rate of 8 flowers / pot.
and then the transition chinchillas took care of the stalks. A most pleasing permaculture solution i think !
