Mum and dad dad were so proud. Their Nectarine Tree developed a huge BUMPER crop of yummers fruit that looked great.
See - that's the tree behind me in the very hot sunshine.
We are still puffing(dawgs) and schwitzing(peeps) here in our record high temperatures.
See the beautifuls sweet fruits on the tree. The peeps were lickin' their lips looking forward to them.
Then these feathered guys moved on in and ......
Soon the fruits were lookin' like this !!
And the pavers smelt good with shredded Nectarine stuff spewed everywhere!!
Mum and dad dad were not happy ..... but I pointed out that the birdies were just trying to feed their little birdies!! (plus eat a little themselves)
The peeps were not happy my furiends.
So I direct your attention to the vegie patch.
Here we are having more success. The old sheets are preventing the scorching sun from stewing the tomatoes and frying the leaves in the 40 (104F) plus temperatures.
Here is my favourite patio tomato bush. It produces little baby cherry tomatoes which I can pick myself!!
But mum didn't like it when I started ripping off bits of the branches to get to them!! Bol! So now SHE does the picking for me.
See - those birdies didn't get these!! Yaaahoooo!
And there are plenty more to come on yet.
I know Frankie and Ernie's mom will be very jelly to see our Tomatoes ..... they are very cold over there at the moment. Warm up soon Aunty Lana!!
