BACK TO KANGAROO ISLAND – THE GARDEN

13/1/2017 – I am back in South Australia, visiting friends

This is the front view of the beautiful stone cottage that I am sleeping while on Kangaroo Island with Liz and Scott.  Complete with mezzanine floor, Scott is now building an extension in order to house more WWOOFers.

View of the work in progress, to the left will be a shower block, in the middle is the new extension for bunk beds, and to the right is the original from the back of the building.

I slept in the extension, as the original cottage is being used for storage (and it’s full).  You can search on the category “Kangaroo Island” to check on their progress.

And here’s the garden for now, slightly overgrown as Liz and Scott have been cycling overseas for a few months, but they will soon get it back in shape.

I was amazed at the number of potatoes all over the garden, they are growing like weeds, the entire garden has potato plants growing between other vegetables.  I couldn’t resist collecting a few.

Some parts are a bit more ordered, I helped with the weeding.

Liz is working to get more seedlings into the garden before the weather turns and it is too late.

More produce that likes to grow unaided.

And this is how you try and keep the possums out.  Unfortunate if they get in, because then they have a hard time finding their way out again.  Great times as always.
