Well we have finally received the day we were after. Rain has been coming in bursts throughout the day. Great for the veggie garden. We were out hunting for those green grubs that the white butterfly lays and found our first piece of broccoli growing. It won't be long now and we will be eating this for tea every night. Yum. We grow things organically here at Kainga. So a wander around the garden and a quick stamp on the ground with our feet kills off any bugs that dare to enter.
We have been picking English Spinach and Chinese Cabbage from this garden bed for several weeks now. Cauliflowers should soon start forming too. You can see who much these have grown by looking back at this previous post. Which was only last month.
This morning we had our monthly Garden Club gathering which was held at my Mum's garden. Earlier on in the year I met a lady at the Mundaring Markets that was selling cottage plants and was willing to travel up and sell her plants and give a talk about gardening. Everyone enjoyed listening to her talk and I managed to pick up these plants. All the plants are suitable for hot dry conditions so hopefully with a bit of love and care will thrive here. Fingers crossed.
Last night I managed to get a fair amount of the cutting out done and started on the applique. The Friday-Night-Sew-In is a lot of fun especially seeing what everyone else has done. There were 108 people who were joining in this month. The next step is to get it completed. Ian Lucy and David are of to the West Coast Eagles versus Saint Kilda footy match tomorrow so I will get a chance to work on the applique while they are out. Wasn't it great to see Freo Dockers beat Sydney Swans today!!!!!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
