hubby is off to the hardware shop this very minute, to get rolls of wire, I'm so excited! POSSUM PROOFING! this year WE will eat well, not the wildlife (sorry possums, but you broke the agreement re sharing!!)
My herns are already netted in pots outside the dining room door, but now we have broad beans lettuce spinach carrots an on and on to go in, oooh and the solitary heirloom rhubarb that survived last year, yay yay yay!

Hail has holed my new rhubarb and broadbean leaves...some wild weather this week! frustrating, because its too cold and windy to be out doing in the garden.

Tony, I am sorry to hear what happened to you, but you will have the last laugh. Living well is the best revenge.
Today I am getting the first of the lights for the basement garden for my winter growing! I am very excited about this and hope to put pictures up soon.

Playing with the recycling today we decided to make a cheap and easy automatic drip system on the cheap! 2 liter bottles with a tiny hole drilled in the cap (easily done with the cap still on the bottle) and a large one drilled in the bottom. Upended and filled with water they drip and don't seem to lose much if anything to evaporation!

Such a lovely day. I managed to water the glasshouse, weed some of the vege garden, plant some more broad beans, pick some celery, snap peas, broccili and some baby broad beans.

I didn't get much done in the garden today. My dear husband bought me two mandarin orange trees, pots and the stuff to plant them for the house.
They will be in my living room. (do we all call the main living area in a house the living room?) They were a present for my birthday. He is such a sweetie.

Ha ha John - just imagine those 15inch mulberrys!!
These natural disasters sure create havoc and stress for those living in the stricken areas. Makes us realise how lucky we are. I planted lots of stuff today including yard long beans - in a greenhouse but the weather is very mild at the moment. I also planted cleome, three different tomatoes, calendula, amaranthus, beetroot and lettuce. Roll on summer!
