Summer Sunday

Today was so perfect that with the barest of housework essentials achieved I found much in the garden to pleasantly distract me and keep from more mundane chores. While I value and esteem domesticity and relish a harmonious home, sometimes the day is too fine to dally indoors.

We have a ute load of stable manure...can I use the word lovely?...well I will anyway because it is so nicely broken down and hot with microbial action that the plants are sitting up begging for it! I was very excited to plant out my own blackcurrant bush today and have relocated some strawberry runners also to a garden bed in the front. It's interesting how priorities change, more and more space in the garden is being converted to food production. I still have flowers in amongst the veggies, as I like to encourage the bees to our garden and ensure good pollination for all. A couple of the zucchinis got away from us and ended up nearly marrow sized so they made a beautiful soup for our lunch today.

Simply an onion and the two zucchini chopped and simmered in stock then blended smooth, nothing more, delicious! Dinner was a mixed vegetable (dry-alu) curry from the garden; onion, potato, beans, broccoli, corn, squash and zucchini. Simply divine.

Tonight I have finished another couple of baby singlets for the Made It shop. Fish are becoming quite popular for baby mofifs. People like the bright colours and can buy before baby is born as they suit for boys or girls.

These singlets have now sold, but other similar items are available in the shop. Thanks for stopping by.
