Saturday morning and it’s far to wet to do any gardening.
We’ve had 10 rainy days in June so far with a total of 121mm [5”], that’s about average for the last 4 years but it certainly slows down the gardening.
The car was booked in for a wheel alignment this morning, so Sue and myself went for a walk around town for an hour or so whilst it was being done.
Mooched through a few shops looking for nothing in particular but did find something interesting in one of our supermarkets. A sheep’s milk Fetta cheese from Bulgaria.
A 500gm pack for $6.00 was pretty good value. Tried some on my sandwich for lunch and it’s good.
It looks like too big a piece of cheese to eat before it goes off, so I’m going to try freezing half of it to see how that goes.
Anyway a good hours walk this morning and more exercise after lunch, splitting firewood for our wood heater.
Just followed that up with another 40 minute walk this afternoon.
I’m still trying to have a small serve of peanuts weekly and I’ve had no ill effects so far.
Broad beans are up about 50mm [2”] in the garden and I’ve got them netted to protect them from the greedy Sparrows and Starlings who can’t resist the young tender leaves.
Thanks to all seven Aussies who responded to my call. Not many of us are there ?
Not much else to say today, so I’ll talk to you again next time.
