It’s been a mostly quiet week. Our sunflower seeds are sprouting. I think we have 10 out of 18 in under a week which is amazing. The pumpkin and corn seeds we planted the other day are swelling and fit to burst (some of them swelled out of their soil lol)
Today has been a busy one though. The morning was spent pulling apart the trampoline in order to take it up to Ballan. Pulling off those springs was hard work as my shoulders are now snidely reminding me. This time at least it is just pain from overworked muscles as opposed to injured ones. The trampoline was pulled apart, the slide dismantled and the BBQ has had its wings removed and the lot was then loaded into the trailer and is now resting at the new house.
I have also gathered my supplies for tomorrows produce swap in Ballarat. I have empty egg cartons, some strawberry jam, sourdough starter with recipes (I need to write them out tonight) and some home saved organic grey and butternut pumpkin seeds. Here’s hoping people are interested. I’m hoping to grab some eggs and maybe some fresh veggies or even seedlings and a wonderful experience. It’s my first ever swap and I am very excited. It will be just Orik and I going and hopefully a friend and her baby too. 🙂 Can’t wait although the early start from here is not looking so fun. 😦
Tomorrow is the plan to get in the last of the veggie beds so there is compost to be purchased and boxes and newspapers to be got too. Martin is also planning to mow everything (again) which is just as well as the grass really is getting quite long and I saw on a Facebook page today that the first snake of the year was sighted in Ballan yesterday. A rather cross Tiger Snake I believe. I’m really not too keen on the legless reptiles (read that as scared silly) so everything that can be done to discourage them will be done. *shudder*
Well, off to get things sorted for the morning and get some arnica rubbed into these aching shoulders of mine.
What are YOUR plans for the weekend hippies? Do share. 🙂
