Our chicken dramas continue - this little one has slowly continued to go down hill. I was told by the previous owner that she had wormed and de-liced her. I decided to wash her yesterday (something I thought I would never say nor do - wash a chook) and you would not believe this little one was covered in white dandruff - lice! We wormed her tonight and she has decided I am mama hen... Wants/needs a mama snuggle! She hasn't stopped peeping... #InvestigateExploreDiscover #NaturalLearning #ChickensWows #ThisLittleOneNeedsToLive

It's Magpie swooping season here in Australia. My two friends didn't get the memo..... Yes they swoop down on me, not to hurt me, but to spend time with me helping in the garden. I often wonder why jobs in the garden take me so long to complete πŸ€”. I think I have my answer.... Whenever I dig, I end up with helpers. The last photo is one of Fluffy our Silkie Chicken with her fluffy head in the hole that I'm digging..... πŸ’“πŸ˜‚ #InvestigateExploreDiscover #NaturalLearning #Magpies #BFF #Helpers πŸ’“

One of my favourite spots.... Test your nerves #rockhopping. They have done this before, but today the water was a lot higher. They have become brave πŸ‘

@bravewilderness - Last night was brilliant! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ The show was entertaining not only for kids, but for adults as well. We had brilliant seats, the kids got to sit back and relax and just get to have the most amazing experience. The Bravewilderness team stayed back after the show to sign books and talk to people. By the time we got out of the theatre to join the never ending queue we decided we might as well go last to meet and greet. Thanks to @coyotepeterson @marklaivins @mario_aldecoa and @benanderson1986 taking the time to talk to our girls about their passion. We didn't get home until 2 in the morning, but it's moments like this that inspire, not only kids, but us adults as well. We've come away pumped and ready to take 2018 to a new level of learning. #HomeEdKidsπŸ™‹πŸ‘πŸ’“πŸ˜Š #InvestigateExploreDiscover #NaturalLearning

Happy Halloween! This is the best photo I've got of our kids @kathjen πŸ€”πŸ˜±. Half of C's costume annoyed her, so it got taken off. We picked up our friends son and a long story short his trick or treating costume was at his house and we didn't have a key to get in to get it. R was the only one all sorted. BUT the kids didn't mind at all. No time for photo's, they were off!

C's latest obsession - identifying local frogs 🐸

Well, this is how they sorted their problem out - sit and eat lunch all loaded up with their babies while I push them πŸ€”

To live in harmony with our environment, with the bird life that visits our yard. But man, the magpies and ravens have made it hard this year and are testing us in every way. Last year I planted seeds directly into the ground and the slugs ate the juicy seedlings. This year I planted into toilet rolls (made over 100 pots) and these little biodegradable pots and after I un-netted the vegetable garden wherever a pot protruded above the soil a friendly bird pulled the pot out to grab the grubs underneath. If I didn't spot the pot in time, the little seedling shriveled up and died....and would you know it, I've had no slugs this year.... #AGardenersLife

We are half way peeps! Some serious work going on here. Two sisters determined and focused to hatch little chicks. And my two girls are fussing over these two big time. Lots of love everywhere. Natural instinct has kicked in for everyone. Natural Learning at its best. πŸ’“

Do you remember when I started our seeds off in cotton wool balls/toilet rolls? If you swipe to the next photo you'll see our corn growing. The top half of the raised garden bed is the corn that was started off in cotton wool balls. The bottom half of the raised garden bed is where we put seeds straight into the ground (about 4 or so weeks later). As you can see there really is no difference in growth; the cotton wool/toilet roll method resulted in no growing advantage, but was a great gardening experience for the girls as they could see how seeds germinate.

What do you do when you've a child who refuses to do maths, but loves money???? You start doing money maths! The girls bought dinner and dessert tonight and they loved the concept. Meals are cheap around here πŸ˜‰. Having learning difficulties are frustrating for my daughter, but it's about finding out what works for her and then running with it. This money set is working a treat βœ”πŸ€—πŸ˜ #InvestigateExploreDiscover #NaturalLearning #LearningDifficulties #Dyslexia #ADHD #HomeEdKids #KeyLearningAreasCovered #MoneyMaths

Blueberry bushes covered βœ”. Next we have to tackle the bigger fruit trees.....πŸ€”

Our berries and passion fruit have taken off - so polypipe to the rescue! Luckily my dad had some old pipe I could use, which saved me some $. As I built the structure for the boysenberry, youngberry and passion fruit plants my girls played happily next to me. If you swipe you'll see some of our cuttings/seedlings (raspberries, boysenberry, youngberry) that we're growing. The last photo is to make you smile - a photo of Silkie, our Silkie chicken. Did you see my #PhotoBombingDog?

My girls said today that they are the luckiest kids πŸ€—. Today we went and picked up two new budgies and we were so excited because about a month ago we rescued a white budgie that had flown into our yard and ended up in our dogs mouth. It was our neighbours bird and he said to keep it. After about three weeks it took a turn for the worst and we ended up taking the little thing to the vets to be euthanized. We were all heart broken. So we decided to get a replacement (x2). We bought these from the actual breeder, not a pet shop. She took the time to show us a nest full of eggs, newly hatched chicks, older chicks and her prized winning bird. What a fantastic morning. Then this afternoon we had art appreciation at the Bendigo Art Gallery. Then after a quick play with friends we were off to pick up some fertile chickens eggs to go under our broody hen. #ThisIsOurClassRoomToday #MeetingPeople #LearningAboutLife

I got to spend this afternoon in the garden. How beautiful it was. As I pottered the girls played 😘 Today's harvest. Our sugar snap peas and snow peas have been producing non stop. The plants are at the end of producing so I started to pull them out. I decided to pull out the garlic as well. I am calling these garlic boutique πŸ˜‰. Everything is growing like crazy. It is all taking off and it won't be long before yummy food starts coming our way!πŸ˜‹ #InvestigateExploreDiscover #NaturalLearning #GrowingOurOwnFood #HomeEducatedKids #KeyLearningAreasCovered #KitchenGardener #PermacultureBug

And our vegetable's are being grown in raised garden beds, a #VegePod and self watering raised garden bed. We've had to cover all the seedlings because our resident magpies like to pull the seedlings out, yes even as we were planting them! #LoveLittleHelpers

So what have we done we our old chicken coop? Done it up of course! Swipe to see how it looked before we painted it. We plan on getting fertile eggs and placing them under a broody hen and letting her raise the chicks in this coop. After she has raised them they'll all go back into the other coop. The girls and I are thinking what animal can we get for this home when it's free. We have discussed miniature pigs! Anyone else have any ideas?

Around the yard we have used five 150 litre planter bags for some fruit trees. We've planted orange, grapefruit, tangelo, plum and feojoa.
Also in our yard other fruit trees/vines and nuts we have are:
- in pots:
4 blueberry bushes, 2 apple trees 38 strawberry plants.
in the ground:
Passion fruit, 2 olive trees, 4 grape, dwarf mulberry, 2 dwarf cherry, pomegranate, Trixie pear, dwarf plum, dwarf almond, 2 hazelnut, fig, dwarf lemon, dwarf, mandarin, dwarf lime, 2 dwarf apple trees, persimmon, dwarf apricot, dwarf nectarine and dwarf peach.
in raised garden beds:
Raspberries (lots), 2 youngberry, 2 boysenberry, red current, black current, and kewiberry.
I'm so excited. Ten of the fruit trees have been in the ground two years and they are loaded! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‹ Have you noticed that my dog photo bombs a lot of my photo's?

The girls have their very own garden bed that they attend to. They decided on the design and then planted the plants up all by themselves. They pick the dead flowers off to encourage new growth. I think it's safe to say, they're doing an amazing job! πŸ’“πŸ™‹πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜˜ #InvestigateExploreDiscover #NaturalLearning #HomeEducatedKids #KeyLearningAreasCovered #Unschooled #LearningDifficulties #Dyslexia #ADHD #GrowingOurOwnFood #KitchenGardener #FreshFood #Organic

Now to show you the other garden bed. We planted in pots 1x gourmet red flesh apple, and 2 x blueberries. In the ground two different grape varieties, dwarf almond, 2x hazelnut and a fig. We added a seat with arch and some trellis for the grapes. These garden beds were a kit, which we stained with oil.

A little bit of pretty for your day. I've never been able to grow geraniums (I know, these are the most easiest plant to grow), but this year is the year to prove to myself and the girls we can do anything! πŸ™‹. I'm loving the flower display I'm being given πŸ’“
