Up at 6 a.m. and after breakfast I headed to the Growers' Market. Stuck to my shopping list this time (quite difficult as there is so much on offer).
After the market I went straight to Doug's where he was just finishing his breakfast and we had a pleasant walk with Sophie around Tikipunga streets.
I then did some pruning in his garden (started it yesterday). He has been so busy doing jobs for me that it has been neglected.
After going across town to pick up his grandson and take him to work at Countdown, Doug stopped and bought some mussels which he cooked for lunch.
It started to pour as we drove across town and the temperature has dropped considerably with thunder, lightening and hail.
I headed home and left him to clear out his workshop. Not a lot done this afternoon apart from phoning a couple of friends, sorting out my purchases and lighting the fire.
Last night I took a photo of the Tamarillo tree I purchased a couple of years ago. Pleased with the crop this year. Picked a couple yesterday to see if they are ripe enough. Looking forward to tamarillo and apple crumble.
