A rare family shot – Jeff, Henry, Hugo and me (Jo) – at Sculpture Park in Mundaring in 2013.
Our first babies at Edgefield
Caprese salad to die for
Our beautiful living room.
Jeff doing what he does best
Hugo with one of the new Austalorp chicks. I’m not sure who is cuter!
Outside in the garden, where I’m happiest.
The soaring internal beams of the raked ceiling in the study.
Enjoying the delights of the food dehydrator.
Garlic – vampires begone!
Lounging in the orange tree – the perfect place for a boy to daydream.
A daily haul at our peak
Mushrooms in the leaf litter
Delicious chicken dish made from our very own roosters!
Mulberries and strawberries from the garden
A tiny first egg.
Bashing and squeezing
Bay, peppercorns, cinnamon stick and cardamom with lemons and salt
Just a sample of our 2013-14 tomato harvest.
My Mum painted this beautiful portrait of “Dirk Diggler”, my incredibly handsome Silver Spangled Hamburgh rooster, as an early birthday present. He is now proudly hanging on my kitchen wall. What a spunk!
Hugo’s 3rd birthday bonfire
Henry and Hugo in the Spring blooms of Edgefield’s back paddock.
Hugos artful photograph
Gorgeous foliage hangs on as the temperatures drop
Plucking our first rooster.
To die for bruschetta with ripe homegrown tomatoes and basil.
Would someone please inform these flowers it’s not Spring yet.
Camp oven heaven
Hugo doing an awesome job halving cherry tomatoes for drying
