Today our word is "FARM" & I kept thinking of more and more things that fitted, but have decided to work with our own area of Gippsland here in Victoria, supposedly some of the best farming country in Australia. Although suburbia is catching up with us fast, there is certainly plenty of farming, growing & supplying food still going on. Linking up with Astrid once again
Where do I start......................?
1. Daffodil farm just south of town which covers many, many acres and is a sight to behold come August.
2. Dairy farms, which are dotted all around us supplying milk to dairies at Darnum, Korumburra, Leongatha and Poowong among others, further afield. Cows on the way to be milked one afternoon, taken on one of many forays into countryside.
3. Tomatoes. We have some of the hugest glass houses and undercover growing for tomatoes & now we believe aubergines and a few other veg. These are opposite the big new estate a few streets from us and hopefully will be staying for a long time to come.
