NEWSLETTER
 

May 2014

 
Well, time flies!!  We have had some highs and some lows since our last newsletter. 
Our pub extension is finally finished and looking really good.

We had a bumper crowd for our Sunday Lunch on Easter Sunday and filled all the new tables to capacity. Seems like it was just finished in time for colder days ahead. 
 
 
 
Chef Kadija has perfected her artisan bread and it is on sale every Sunday with delicious honey or jams.
 

Ernest helping me start a “sheet mulch garden” in December and the results below a few months later.

 
 
 
I can’t wait until these special “green” cauliflowers flower!
 

Barlotti beans

 
 
 
Stripey beetroot, and Thelma Saunders squash picked in the last few weeks .  We have spread our first, well rotted compost heap back onto the garden, so things are starting to take shape and the recycling of vegetable waste from the kitchen is playing its part.

 
 
Bryan found an amazing spider web the other night whilst he was doing his rounds checking the security fence … a double layer of security.  Thanks Mr Spiderman.  In fact, we have noticed a significant decline in the number of mosquitos this summer. Maybe the spiders are doing a good job at keeping these little invaders out?
 

This poor little Barn Owl Chick was rescued after falling out of its nest on the neighbouring farm and rushed off to “The Bird Man” Errol Markow for emergency treatment.  Sadly, it didn’t recover from its injuries (a broken leg and eye infection), but we have invested in an “Owl House” and with the help of Ben Hoffmann from the African Bird of Prey Centre, hope to encourage the barn owl population at Emoyeni.
