I’m still here.
We are still in stage four lockdown
So not heaps going on right now
It’s been very very wet and the ground out the back was soaked. So I couldn’t get to my veggie garden
Today we went in, me without shoes as per normal,
And harvested what we could and ripped out anything that had gone to seed to be fed to the steer and sheep
We got a heap of silverbeet, or rainbow chard some people call it
A few head of cabbages
The last of the onions
I think I’ll cook them up with the cabbages and then freeze it in portions
The last of the lettuces
We will have that for a our dinner tonight
With the left over roast lamb
My wonderful friend who works in the nursery industry always buys extra seedlings from her work and drops half off to me on the way home
So I’ve planted out the tomatoes in the big pots.
I’m hoping to get early crops from these six and then if my seeds germinate I’ll share my seedlings with her
And that will mean we will have successive cropping to last all through the summer
Well that’s the plan
Still need to put these in the garden but I’ll have to finish weeding it first
Hopefully by the end of the day or tomorrow at the latest
Inside the craft room is still waiting on tradies to be able to come but we are hoping in the next few weeks that will happen
I’ve been working on a few things that I can’t show you just yet!
But I’ve been also making these trauma teddies
Which one I have a few more and we are able to go again I’ll drop off
So that’s caught you all up
I’m starting to struggle with all this covid stuff mentally
I never imagined just how much good the swimming was doing for me
And getting out everyday to see my swim friends, who are all in the same boat as me swimming
To help with pain and injury.
The support is a huge part of the swimming not just getting out of the house
Hopefully soon restrictions will ease
And slowly we will get to a level of some kind of normalcy
But for now. Stay safe and well
See ya xxx
You've been in lockdown a really long time. No wonder it's affecting you.ReplyDelete
Your garden produce is fantastic. Good luck with the summer garden.
I love the idea of those trauma bears. I made a couple myself but they just went to grandchildren.
Keep up the good work.
Hope you can have human contact very soon
We all just hope we get to have a family Christmas at this stage.Delete
Our number of new cases is under fifty a day now they said until it’s around five a day we will be locked in
I hope the lockdown you're experiencing will ease soon so that you can get back into swimming and seeing your friends again. Until then, enjoy your garden and rain (we could use some up here) and planting and early tomatoes. MegXxReplyDelete
If I could sent the rain to you I wouldDelete
Actually if I couldn’t come up I would. Being a Victorian right now isn’t fun at all
That’s could not couldn’t. Oh myDelete
Lovely garden stuff. I will have to look up silverbeet, which I neve heard of before.ReplyDelete
