The rosella bushes were harvested a couple of weeks ago and I ended up with only about a 1kg of fruit. Once I'd removed the seeds I had only half the volume left........ it amounted to 3 small jars of rosella jam. Not much to show from 7 bushes. I must admit the bushes took a bit of a battering; they were attacked by all sorts of pests including cheeky Harriette.
After pulling out the spent bushes I decided to keep the branches......... such a pretty red.
I had a fun afternoon making this strange structure. Don't ask me what it is!!
More red vegetable matter...... red coral lettuce, ready for eating.
Harriette is doing very well. Her legs are getting really strong and she likes to gallop around kicking, bucking and swishing her tail around. The nights are cold now and I've noticed her fur is changing....... it's not as red, but a darker brown, it's coarser and much longer too.
My cheeky little bovine sweetie!
