It was a lovely spring day in Whyalla when we went over on Wednesday. We had lunch at the Beach Cafe then went to my appointment. They have really nice beaches over there, a nice spot to sit and enjoy.
I came home with some plants from the garden centre. A black cherry tomato plant, punnets of strawberries and apple cucumbers. I also stopped in at Cheap as Chips to pick up a couple of things.
What is it with these birds? They build their nests in the strangest of places. I know this one has babies because I hear them when I walk past, they are common house sparrows.
Friday however was productive, although I had a big pile of washing to do. I find that I keep putting off household chores and instead spending the day outside in the nice sunshine. The thing with housework is, it will wait for you, and I will get to it eventually. It is not top of my priority list lol! I ended up doing the washing, vacuuming and mopping as I have a busy week coming up.
First thing in the morning I set to and re-potted a mint plant. I need to repot a few plants as I don't want them to become pot bound.
I have planted out the black cherry tomato.
I buried a rotten tomato in the soil a week or so ago, hoping that the seeds would grow. I was very pleased to see tiny life appearing.
These volunteer tomatoes are starting to look like Roma's...I think.
Today we spent time putting up shade cloth out in the patch.
We laid the shade cloth out in the driveway to measure and cut.
Stretched and pulled over the top. Almost finished now.
This old fridge has been placed under a shady tree to be used as a worm farm, I am hoping that the insulation will protect them from our very hot weather. The fridge still needs to be leveled and some things done to it to prepare for the worms.
I have started to put mulch around the veggies.
I really need to find room somewhere in a bed or two for some of these rhubarb, they will grow so much better.
I freed this bed up by removing one of the celery plants and topped it up with some horse poo, soil and slow release fertiliser. Maybe I will put rhubarb in this one.
See you soon,
