    I started pickling more jalapenos and bishops caps.
    Car battery was dead I havent driven since before xmas
    I dont drive far/often so the battery doesnt get a chance to charge
    So I had that on charge for tomorrow trip
    I will have to fish out the solar trickle charger to keep it topped up.

    Covered the whole veggie patch in shade sails yesterday, kept loosing too many things, I think the sun is extra strong this year.
    Very excited, my sister and her hubby have set up a veggie patch, they got some raised beds from mum for Christmas and I made them a lovely gardening hamper with everything people who have never gardened could need. She sent some photos of their first plantings on the weekend, it is quite a miracle, think that may have been the first time she has ever touched dirt 🙂

    Finally both my boys have taken to growing veggies. It has only taken them 20 years.

    Once you start your hooked for life
    I was lucky my dad had a massive veggie garden and tonnes of knowledge and I was interested at a very early age.
    Still ask him stuff now you never stop learning and home grown tastes excellent as is virtually free.

    My childhood memories of eating a young cucumber early in the morning is still one of my favourite tastes
    No bought cucumber has that taste.

    With carrots bought and grown its like they are a different species.
    I can never eat a bought fig, apricot or plum without being sad wishing it was home grown.

    Like I said I’ve had enough rain …. went out to plant something dug the hole about 100mm deep and it filled with water so gave up, checked on the beans that are in that same general area and they are looking sad the asparagus on the other hand is happy.
    Rosella bush had a flower today 🙂
    I really need to get more planted picked the last of the radishes, picked a few zuchs today …. and collected 5 cups of frog spawn from a depression in the yard and put it all in the dam.

    Except the tomatoes they dont like it so much at this time of  the year.
    Still lots of fruit but the leaves are yellowing
