She's back!!!

Hi thanks for hanging in there, I dropped out of the bloggersphere for quite some time didn't I.
Early in June my husband was given some rather shocking & depressing news regarding his health which certainly turned our world around. After months of being in shock & him engaging in treatment everyday which involved him travelling a round trip of 4hrs each day, I'm pleased to say he is a lot better & we are feeling more positive. Phew... now that that's out of the way we can get onto lighter subjects.
Last week I had a visit from a very tame cockatoo who didn't seem at all disturbed by me watching him eating the seed pods from the wattle tree at our front door. He seemed just as interested in me as me in him.
I've also been busying myself in the veg patch of late, harvesting homegrown broadbeans (yum) & planting many more seedlings such as tomatoes, eggplant, beetroots & butternut pumpkin. The plan is to be feasting on nutrient packed homegrown fruit & veg all Summer long.
Do you enjoy getting your hands grubby & attempting to grow your own food? Ever had a little critter from the animal kingdom pay you a visit at your pad?

Sorry to hear your time away from the blogosphere has been traumatic... hopefully things will continue to improve and all will be great again.
How lovely to have a regular visitor to your garden! We have a sneaky nocturnal visitor which we occasionally spot and he is lovely (a bandicoot!) and we love that we can supplement our diet with nutrient rich home grown food! We have kale and perennial lettuce in right now (waiting for the Tassie weather to warm up for real Spring planting!) and chickens 6 weeks away from laying hopefully - exciting times! :)
Great to see you back :)

What yummy dishes are you using the broad beans in. Our crops just gone into some kind of bumper output. I need ideas. (Oh, and welcome back.)
