I have the weekend to myself since the husband is back at work again (well I will see him at night)
Lets just say though the most exciting thing this weekend will be that I finally got rid of the dodgy god knows how old purple toilet seat and replaced it with a beautiful white new toilet seat… It doesnt take much to excite me though.
This morning after a lazy breakfast I popped down to the vege garden to do a bit of a clean up. The lettuces have gone to seed so out most of them have come, I could not pull them all out because I had so many bees and I felt so bad taking their flowers away. The zucchini and squash have not taken off as well as they did last year but they are now in a new area and we have had a mountain of rain which did hit them hard but have just cleaned up the worst of the leaves and found that we do have a fair few little ones in there so fingers crossed they start to beef up a bit.
The artichokes and pumpkins have really taken off which is great to see and there are a heap of baby pumpkins already.
Had thought from all the rain that our beans had been lost and gone forever but after some hunting I found some massive stashes on my tiny little bean bushes! Also pulled out all but 2 of my red shallots so its been a very green harvest today.
So do you have a vege garden at your place? What do you most like to grow and what grows best for you?
