🦉 This tropical screech owl is a special treat to watch, it really looks like a cat with wings 🐈 🦉
🍒Cherry guayaba is delicious, full of vitamin C & vitamin A.
This year with netting we protected this precious bush from birds .
We harvested a lot to make a rich syrup , which tastes like strawberry 🍓
Our absolute favourite passion fruit flowers are blooming, which can make you stop and stare and forget about everything! We also try to harvest them before the birds eat these delicious, colorful fruits! Giving nature…
We were so lucky to host ‘uncle Gordon’ here for a week. He is very humble so we have to say it out loud : he does incredibly beautiful, astonishing photos , especially of birds! We will share some now, the ones of the Cardenal Rojo , which is not only pleasant for the eyes but for the ears too, it has a beautiful singing voice.
We believe that your dreams CAN come true , the living example is ‘Pavarotti’, our peacock , who has been with us since Christmas.
We have been dreaming to have one and after a lot of research he found THE one.
He is still young , extremely interested in the hens and he is doing more and more weird sounds, from honking to wild cat and shouting! He loves fruits , people’s company and super curious about everything.
Hopefully he will have a partner soon !
Making your own gnocchi from fresh, simple ingredients (🍠+🥚) is very rewarding.
It’s a bit tricky towards the end but once you get the technique, you just roll with it !
After building the new chickens house, we locally sourced (from an ‘auction’ in the fields) 6 chickens and 4 chicks. We never imagined that they would have such characters , vibrating colours and impressive hierarchy . Because of the cold they have only started to lay eggs 2 days ago, we were like excited kids at Easter looking for new ones every minute! With them, and the cows and a horse which are staying here for the winter, we feel our real farm life has started !
We are blessed to have 2 Feijoa trees from which we harvested 7 kg of fruits lately. This fruit has a very aromatic taste, a mixture of mango & pineapple & mint, but every person feels some extra flavour in it . We decided to make our first chutney pot from these delicious, precious green vitamin bombs.
We scooped out the pulp with a spoon, mixed them with plenty of apples, onions, lots of secret spices and cooked for about 8 hours . We can proudly say that the result is delightful!
