I have NEVER gotten excited about a garden as much as this home's garden has excited me.
We have done some new plantings, and now have:
10 strawberry plants (new)
3 plum trees
3 grape vines (new)
3 feijoa trees (2 new)
2 blueberry plants (new)
1 tangelo tree (new)
1 mandarin tree (new)
1 fig tree
1 lemon tree....
and lettuces, broccoli, cauliflower, spring onions, parsley and chives (all new)!
I'm thrilled with our horticultural efforts. *smiles*
Now hopefully everything comes to fruition and we can enjoy our fruit and veges.
I asked Stew if I had missed anything? He said what about the 2 olive trees? Well yes, we do have them, but will they fruit? Don't know... plus we don't like olives!
Griffin dug the holes for the grapevines yesterday afternoon, and Stew planted them after dinner last night. So all our plantings are done.
Today I'm going into town to get some curtain wire. I want to make a curtain for the garage door windows. The glare when I'm sorting out the washing is driving me nuts, so a curtain is in order. I made one for our garage in Palmerston North, so I know it will work.
Keera only has half a day at Kindy today, so I will be picking her up at lunchtime. My ears will be bleeding by the end of the day! That child can TALK... and TALK... and then talk some more! lol
With any luck she will be tired and fall asleep... lol!
Right, I'm off to get said talkative pre-schooler ready for kindy....
11.18 am: And I've not managed to get into town yet.
I've been fluffing around at home. Watered the new grape plants, moved a few items on walls, and finally hung the bunting in Keera's room.
Now I just have to quilt her bed quilt, then her 'bedroom' stuff will be done.
It's been a very long and hot afternoon. The kitchen/dining/family room gets the sun ALL DAY, so it gets pretty hot in here. Keera did her best to drive me nuts today... it was "Grandma, Grandma, Grandma" for hours on end.
So, I laid her down on a couch, with me on the other and insisted she have a rest. I fell asleep. I have no idea if she did! I woke up an hour later and she was off playing with the big kids.
The lounge was a tip. She had laid blankets over the flipped out lazy boys and cushions all over the place. I think she had made tents!
I'm trying to get to bed by 10.30 tonight. Let's see how that goes.
