    Rob – can you come and process our veggies when you’re done? Once again this year – so much produce, so little time! We set up a stall in front of our house (near main road) the other day, and let the kids help sell our excess produce. Made about $45! Must do it again if I don’t get around to processing the rest…..

    It’s been a tense few days here with cyclone Ului crossing the coast this morn – I have spent alot of time checking on rellies before hand and also this morning since. So far no significant damage – not too sure re neice at Proserpine tho as she was at her in laws and had not been home to see when i contacted her.

    I have had a baking day and prepared a triple quanity fruit cake and then realized I had no eggs:jawdrop: so I have this morning made up the cakes (I did shopping yesterday.

    Today will be more pushing mower thru grass hip high

    May even get those seeds planted!:lol:

    Narellah, I hope your are surviving the weather and am glad to see that the cyclone has been down graded to a severe storm, but even that can pack a punch. My eldest brother lives in SEQ so have been thinking about his fortunes.

    Being sunday I have a bit of a house clean and planning (dreaming) about a house purchase & reno I may do if the price is right and can raise the funds. Its an old seventies 2 bedroom shoebox full of asbestos cement sheet, aluminium windows, creeky rotten deck, crappy carpet, ugly laminex, etc etc and faces the wrong way being jammed up against the North fence on a slopping corner block. It does, however, have great views being elevated, good bones and is a bit of a blank canvas garden wise. Hope you are all having a good day. Cheers porgey

    Recently I won an extension lopper for $10.50 – it is the most amazing thing, slices through sucklings and branches without effort by me. So today I have filled the horsefloat with clippings for the second time in a week. My trees and shrubs are looking neat and tidy for winter.

    Dragged out my sausage making machine and made 2 lots of beautiful sausages out of a small pork shoulder. They look a treat, one lot has herbs and the other has chilli and herbs.

    All in all a productive day for me and it is time for a bit of tapestry.
