Autumn visit to Narelle's country garden in Valery, NSW

 Narelle has established an extensive vegetable garden in Valery. She heavily mulches the poor soil with grass, compost and cow manure. She obviously has a green vegetable thumb, probably because of a lifetime of growing food.

Narelle waits until the ants seek the sugar from the ripe pineapple.
