Up at 5.45 and off to the market at about 6.15 - we didn't need a lot - avocados - I buy from a particular stall 3 for $5.00 from another stall a $5.00 bag of orange kumara (sweet potatoe), from another stall a kilo of delicious early tomatoes for $5.00 plus a few items for Doug's daughter. We were actually too early for the Supermarket as it doesn't open till 7 a.m. so had to wait about ten minutes.
Back home for breakfast then I put the ornaments back in the china cabinet. Doug did some work on the shelf unit we had moved from the spare bedroom to his room while I cooked a ragu style sauce with 50/50 mushrooms and mince which I will freeze in packs. Then it was straight into cooking a spatchcocked free range chicken for lunch with roasted kumara and potatoes. As we have a lull in our beetroot on the spur of the moment we bought some so I prepared the tops for lunch and got the actual roots ready to roast with a few more kumara after the chicken had cooked.
A bit of work in the garden and then feet up for a read before watering , Doug at the front garden and me the back. Tomorrow, I hope to get the next lot of tomatoes planted before we go to the gym.
