    Stepped away from the steps for a day,I cleaned gutters for the rains coming in the next few days and planted my seeds I got in the mail from Ebay,peas beans cucumbers will need to get onto the leeks and onions….$2.5 for a leek is disgusting and I love them.

    Tweaked the path a bit more to go tomorrow and stage 1 is finished,then its going to rain for a few days let the cement dry and get ready for stage 2 next week,stage 2 is a bit more tricky there will only be 3 or 5 steps there but closer together as it drops of sharply…I need to get this bit right as its an important part of the rhythm,long steps ,quick steps, long steps,quick steps long steps….the quick steps are for the really steep bits

    Thats the future at the moment its lots of kneeling and scratching my head but Im enjoying it and looking forward to the finished product….Ive never done stone masonry before or built steps, so its a nice learning experience,Im ready to sculpt in stone…hopefully the urge is still with me at the end,I could end up building some nice things.

    My tomatoes are doing well too, they love the Queensland climate most of the year,except the wet season…Ive got little green ones on one plant,everything just self seeds now form the original seeds I bought nearly 10 years ago…when their time is right up they come,when its too hot and wet nothing happens
