Take all my cooking books over to our storage unit, cos I've got nowhere to put them right now.
And... buy a big candle for the 'what's it' I got from the Hospice shop a while ago.
I suppose if that's all I've got to wonder about I'm lucky.
Just remembered, my Uncle Frank gave us some advice, to try and get a fruit tree or two to actually GROW in our back yard. Our soil is solid clay, so we need to dig HUGE holes, put heaps of compost in and then the fruit tree.
I'd love to get Stew onto digging a hole for a lemon tree.
I can't keep knicking the neighbour's lemons!
If it works, I might acutally think about spending more money on fruit trees. Our last lot of trees died. Such a waste of money.
Right, that's about all I have to yabber on about today... for now.
Success! Third shop we visited in the Apex Mega Centre (Freedom) and we found the perfect 'candle' for my what's it.
ABOVE: it's not even a 'real' candle! It's a plastic fantastic, battery operated flickering fake candle!
Perfect. No safety issues with this one. And it fits almost perfectly too.
Now we are off to Kings Plant Centre in Takanini for a lemon tree and compost. Then lunch at Manukau mall I think.
ABOVE: our 3rd lemon tree! Hopefully we keep this one alive!
As advised by the Garden Centre, I've cut off the lemons so the tree grows bigger before producing fruit.
At least we know it does grow fruit already.
ABOVE: Poor Stew! At least I kept him company, wrapped up in a blankie! It was bloody cold out there.
ABOVE: Fingers crossed we actually get more than ONE grape this year!
ABOVE: Tallulah in the rhubarb patch, cute little girl.
ABOVE: We now have 1 lemon, 2 feijoas and one other citrus, not sure what it is? Our two plum trees died, as did the tangelo and 2 Tree Tomatoes. *sigh*
There is also the two grape vines, one of which is doing really well, and the other is struggling.
I'm thinking of trying to grow passion fruit vine along that back fence now.
Tomorrow I'm going to price half round concrete surrounds for the fruit trees, and see how much a passion fruit vine is too.
LEIGH: thanks for that. I will not get concrete surrounds then!
End of Day: well... we had nothing to do, but managed to fill in the day nicely after all that.
