Can't believe it's been a whole month since I last posted! Now that it's school holidays, I can have a think about what I've been doing apart from going back and forth between school, kinder and home. I've been making a few winter inspired upcycled garments such as the flannelette nightie above.
Picking big sweet juicy apples from our big apple tree.
The Easter weekend's efforts- spreading manure over a big patch of our back lawn. It had lots of patches of no grass, and very sandy soil, so it was time for repair. I'd love a chook tractor at some point, so this is "pasture", not lawn. It's pretty stinky at the moment. Most of our garden got a manure treatment too.
A trip to the Garden of St Erth on Monday (and lunch at Red Beard in Trentham) resulted in a new dwarf golden delicious apple tree, 2 female kiwi vines (the one we planted in spring didn't make it through summer), and a few packets of seed and garlic. All our garlic is now in the garden.
Broad beans (crimson flowered) and snow peas popping up in the teepee.
