I have not blogged or followed other blogs for a while as life got in the way. This is the busiest time of year. At 6 a.m. or whenever I wake up I go out in the garden to do deadheading and weeding before it gets too hot, then have my walk before breakfast. Today was the first day that Doug has come with me. He is doing well but still taking things easy.
We seem to be busy with birthdays and visitors (two lots of visitors today and I went to an exercise class in between).
In the evening there is harvesting and watering which takes a while with Doug doing the front and me the back garden. There were a few days when I did both but Doug is doing it again now. This was the harvest a couple of days ago and it is much the same every day. We also have lettuce, beetroot and carrots.
By the end of the day I finally want to put my feet up and watch the news and the half hour Repair Shed that is on after it.
We weighed one of the Black Krim and it was over 600 grams. They are delicious.
Fellow blogger Jean phoned when I was at the exercise class today to see if we were o.k. as it was a while since I had blogged. Thank you Jean. I gather Doug said it was because I was lazy. Jean the beans you gave me are still producing vast amounts and we have been giving them away - I did freeze beans many years ago but as they were thrown out the following spring I don't bother now as there are always plenty of fresh greens in the garden.
We are pleased with the garden this year, both the flowers and vegetables are doing well. Tomorrow we go out to a friends place just out of town as it is his birthday but I hope to make a start freezing the tomatoes in the afternoon and will soon make some chutney.
Of course tomorrow it is also the inauguration which starts here at 5 a.m. so we shall be watching that while we have our breakfast. I just hope and pray that there is no major disruption.
