Out In the garden …
:: I’m Love, Loving the very late season cucumbers. It’s always surprising how far I can push plants into the next ‘season.’ With frost expected early next week, I will pick the last of the cucumbers later today. Along with the basil and lettuce.
:: Lots of volunteer lettuce have popped up in my carrot rows. These tiny lettuce will be eaten whole. With the last of the cucumber, the last 6 cherry tomatoes and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar it can be a ‘Last hurrah to summer salad…’
:: Finally the Calendulas are flowering. Once there is sufficient blooms I will be making this lotion/ salve. I.can.not.wait!
:: The back verandah and herb garden are looking miserable. *Sigh* Some days I need to split myself into 2. But with a few spare hours this weekend, I will be sweeping, scrubbing, weeding and planning. Oh the plans I have for this little area! A Big white table, water feature, rock edging and flowers for winter colour.
:: And finally here is Max sporting a Mama made PJ top (that he refused to take off for a whole day) and his version of smiling for the camera! It still surprises me he is 26 months old already, how time flies.
