Have fun Vicky and post some pictures. Glad you are still working on your grandparents property ( now yours). You must be slowly making it better.  I am just about to get the pressure cleaner to the peeling off painted bricks of our house. Hoping to remove the paint from the foundations and chimneys and take it back to the natural brick. Then just paint the weather boards again.

Dang it 3rd time better be a charm this tablet keeps sending me out of here when I get a bunch written. Got my chicken wire and found a 2 pack of soaker hoses at the thrift store for $14.99. I quit using poisons didn't want a hawk to eat a poisoned mouse or have them dying in the walls. Now just have to find the energy and pray for good weather to stay around to get my beds built.

Vicky don,t you hate the smell of rats and mice. I have had rats move into my orchid house. Rat poo on all the shelves and pots, I hose it off and go in the next day and its back. I was wondering why my seeds were not growing in there when they should. I think they became rat food. We had to lay baits. I don,t like too because of our dogs. We have a vacant block next door, so Ken nailed rat baits high up on the other side of our fence. No more rat poo, Dogs are OK.

Oh, Nancy we must be tuned in to one and other. Your Campbeltown is Camperdown and that is the town where I live. You turn off the main road in Camperdown and go to Port Campbell to the 12 Apostles. I thought Canada was in metric and I have my air con and heater set at 20c as well. Must be the cosy spot for humans, LOL.

Oh well give it a try. If I could lay another two slabs cement and get help to pull tent trailer so can clean up underneath, then I can work around the last years veggie garden and have space to open up tent trailer totally.

My greenhouse grown cilantro is looking like it is going to bolt since our day temps are close to 60 this week. Just priced chicken wire for the bottom of my beds $75.52 for a 150' by 4' roll of 1" holes. 2" holes are only $35 for the same size roll. But I think the ground squirrels could get thru 2". Caught 5-6 mice indoors already this week.

Canada is metric in temperatures.Have my heat on at 20C which is 70F when it gets chilly. Would love to get back to Australia for trip #4. This time head to Melbourne and see the sights in and around. Did go up the coast to Campbeltown I think it was called, so went by the Twelve Apostles.

Its hard Nancy not to get to excited and plant too early in case there is still ice in the air.  Wow double figures, Mmmmm LOL single ones are rare where I live.  Tirple  F, we get and is no good. But hopefully I have seen the last of over 100 F for this year.

I just made a quiche I think, good tasting. I hope I can get veggies pre-started at nursery or seeds from my collection. Planted late last year did not have anything much for freezing. With prices going up for veggies and fruits I hope this is a better season coming up.

I just made a tomato sandwich for lunch. I picked the tomato straight from the garden and you can feel the sun warmth still in it , beautiful.

  My husband Ken, is starting to be able to tell the difference between the brought veggies and our home grown veggies. He picks it every time now, that our grown veggies taste better. He does not know what I,m cooking or weather its brought or not. So it is great.
