Gardening glory

Yesterday was nice; cool, cloudy and calm. We received approximately 1mm of rain as well, of course that happened whilst I was feeding the pigs. The cook spent most of her day in the garden, with the aide of a couple of new garden tools she has almost dug the entire area over. We have Asparagus, potatoes, garlic, lettuce, zucchini and mobs of other veggie’s sprouting through the soil.

The pump was pulled up from the river last night – don’t want to leave it down there just in case we get a storm. There are storms rolling in from the west at the moment – hopefully the kids get home soon so they don’t get wet. Harry stepped on a brown snake walking home the other afternoon – it’s because he has such big feet, the poor snakes can’t get out of the way quickly enough.

Might have to build a loading ramp for the pigs this week, been putting that off for a while, but finally the time has come to roll up the old sleeves. Hopefully we get some rain tonight and not too much storm.
