Yeah, I’ve been busy again. Between babies and school holidays and Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and general being a mum and running a house, there isn’t much time for things like this. If you want to see what CGS stuff has been happening, go to Just as I haven’t had much time for … Continue reading

I’ve actually managed to do quite a bit in the garden and it’s starting to look like one again, instead of the mass of (largely edible, so it kinda counts) weeds that were in there.

Ok, actually the pics are from a few days ago, but I didn’t get a chance to do anything with them. I’ve finally started sorted out the garden again. I had been thinking something was off in it and eventually clicked that I was rotating my beds in the wrong direction. D’oh! I had spent … Continue reading

I’ve had a busy morning in the garden. I should really be making myself something to eat but I can’t be bothered. Maybe I’ll have some more chocolate in the interim. We’ve had a couple of cold days and nights since my last update, but on the whole it’s been warmish and wet. Excellent news … Continue reading

Direct sowed some beetroot, red silverbeet, kale, carrots, lettuces, broccoli, celery. Cunningly put down seed raising mix first, in the hopes it’ll help germination. Just realised I forgot to take a photo of the strawberry flowers – very exciting! Will get one when there are more. All the gourds I sowed inside have germinated. Except … Continue reading
