What a lovely weekend! A lot of sunshine, little bit of rain and a good lot of gardening.
Right in the middle of this picture is one of our escaped guinea pigs. They are living under the garage and, so we found out today, in the mower shed. Must be retiring there after dark. If we want to catch them we are really looking at getting a possum trap. I have started calling them Thelma and Louise.
Got an asparagus crown today and the run down from Shirley the garden guru from the nursery. The green will die down over winter and come back with spears about mid August. I have never had just cut asparagus but everyone assures me that it is soo much nicer than anything in the shops.
Red onions, lettuce and silverbeet in!
Beetroot seedlings look a little down on their luck but should perk up in the next day or so.
First lot of broccoli is in and I am not even going to mention the first white cabbage moth I saw today.
Our house is coming along, I am still loving the colours we picked (lucky!) the only downer is that it rained just enough yesterday to put a halt to any more than a couple of hours of painting, I am sure the painters were even more disappointed then us!
I got the River Cottage Bread book out from the library yesterday and it is jam packed full of bready fabulousness! Dave made Roti at lunch time and it was super quick and tasty. The first couple were a bit crispy as they were cooked a tad long but he got it in the end!
What a Whiz!
