How's your weekend been?
It's been busy round my neck of the woods!
Yesterday we had a bit of a going away party for some friends of ours who are leaving the area, 10 adults and a heap of kids, lots of food and drink, chatting, laughing, some music, and a bit of pool sharking made for a pretty enjoyable evening!
This was after the first Harvest Lunch at our Community Garden, and a basketball presentation afternoon, Gary took care of the basketball while I stayed home and cooked a few treats for the party, and tried to make the house presentable!
We dragged out our new summer chairs in all their colourful,stripey glory, it was a lovely afternoon weather wise so they had a good work out and were declared very comfortable!
Had a wander round the garden today as well.....
.....checked on the seeds I planted a week or 2 ago, and they are doing well, lovely little snow pea plants........
.......and mesclun lettuce, as well as zucchinis, sweetcorn, tomatoes, sugar peas, capsicums.
My sunflowers have germinated well too, so there should be plenty of colour in the garden this summer if all things go to plan! I sow my seeds in biodegradable pots that I can plant out pot and all, so there is no set back when they are planted into the the garden and I can grow them to a good size before transplanting. It seems to work well for me, we usually have lots of great veg growing amongst all the weeds! Although I don't know how things will go this year with my roaming chickens scratching every where they go!
....a few more garden pics....the artichoke patch, looking good....
.....and the raspberry row, high hopes for a bumper crop this summer!
....poppies are full of buds, really great range of lovely colours this year, so happy !
....and round the front the blossom trees are starting to look gorgeous
.....whites and deep pink of the flowering peach, my favourite I think!
Today was spent cleaning up the house after last night (washed a very tacky floor, yuk), and pottering in the garden, mum and dad visited with my aunt from the country, the boys generally mucked around, the eldest had work and the younger 2 were happy at home.
I am going to go and do a spot of crochet now, a good way to finish of a lovely weekend!
