They used to party a lot round here before the fire.

I mentioned in an earlier blog that the baboons had been burned out of their natural habitat up on the airport road. even the veggie garden at the farm is half burned out so there are only sweet potatoes there. In my veggie garden the sweet potatoes did not yield much when I dug them up, there seemed very few big ones, but the baboons found them digging with their hands. On going round the side of the house after hearing several grunts I found a big Baboon sitting on the wall eating a very large sweet potato as if it was a Hotdog. they had eaten most of the Turnips and pulled all the tomato plants out. This was after the last fire so I`m just waiting now to see what will happen.

When they came last time it seemed like a family affair.

I think he`s outmaneuvered me, but he looks a lot smaller and did not like being on the same stoop.

I am busy pulling as many turnips and sweet potatoes up as can be used and just hope they don`t rubbish my bean plants like last time. It`s time now to plant the winter veg in the front where an eye can be kept on them. So most of the things used in the kitchen are mostly in pots or troughs.
The ground around the farm areas will be quite fertile for the next crop as there is a lot of burned foliage and ash to dig in, before it`s blown away with the wind. There are a lot of places that I saw in that area that have already got vynbos coming through after a week or so. I think most of the problems were caused by the pine trees as the vynbos needs a fire to get regrowth and are not so difficult to contain, as I saw on one of the farms nearby. Our municipality decided many months ago not to collect garden refuge which is causing fly tipping. I think if they collected it still and made it into compost for sale, it would produce employment for those who cannot do technical jobs and improve the local situation.

I think it`s time to dress up and scare them away.

Well we have had some good rain lately so that must be good, and the wind has dropped.

I haven`t blogged for a while and am suffering from withdrawal as I used to be a bloggerholic. The sky in the morning always seems more interesting in the winter months so  will start off with yesterday.

As we have a problem with water in the Cape its quite surprising that there are so many veggies still growing.I`ve been using rain water for a while now and it`s getting low so may have to use grey water.

There are quite a few insects and other creepy crawlies around. i find the Prey Mantis very resourceful.When they catch a bee or wasp they keep the sting out of the way while they eat it.i was very surprise to see the even eat Gecko`s, but they do it while it is alive.

Before I go to sleep I like a hot cup of something, but this cup was a bit cold. Don`t put a full cup in the microwave 🙂

Most of the early morning is spent looking up or out to sea. There are some great sunrises and very strange cloud formations.

We used to have a ` Fire Pool ` in town near the council chambers but that has now been filled with rocks and plants that need very little water.

After watching a few of Trevor Noah`s shows i think he has a good grasp of the political situation in South Africa. I like the way he takes all the things that we fret about every day and sees the funny side of them. He also delves into every race in the country and has obviously studied them in detail.If I was to make comments on politicians, I think they would be too practical but he can call someone a thief and make it comical. For an in depth description on his life use the hyperlink

Although most of the shows I saw he was wearing jeans and leather jacket he did say that he was looking forward to taking over as host for his show in the USA. I saw that interview on DSTV and pointed out that a lot of things are worse in that country than SA, although this was supported mainly by an America announcer 🙂

He also has facebook, twitter and many others for followers.

I was just trying a different format, back to normal latter today.
