Its a good day when you underestimate the size container needed to pick your raspberries! Not much off a kilo here! The local supermarket has them on sale at $34/kg!! Leading up to Christmas I have seen them as high as $54/kg which is daylight robbery.
Just glad we have plenty of our own to enjoy.
Plenty coming along on the canes as well!
I also found some baby butternut pumpkins!!
And like other adventurous toddlers running off … a few plants were making their escape into the neighbours paddock!
I’ve redirected them and also spent some time mulching most of the garden in this area.
I will possibly give up on the watermelons though… maybe give them another week or two to see if they look like bouncing back.
I still think the tomatoes will be fine.
A few basket fulls of rose petals. Not sure what I will do with them… if anything. But they are pretty.
With a bit of a shock I realise its a week until Christmas. I am even less prepared this year than last!
I did, however, actually send out a card today.
I am not sure if Jeff will be working, but one or both of us will be planning on trotting down to Rubys for a quiet Christmas Lunch – I’ll be making a pavlova and some home made custard and Ruby will be baking something!
Sounds like a grand plan to me!
I hope most of you have something wonderful planned for the festive season.
Whats tradition in your household?
Of course being in summer, an older tradition when we headed back to our home town for Christmas, was to eat a nice big lunch, hang out with family and open presents at some point.
Later in the evening all the ‘kids’ – neighbourhood crew etc (now slightly older) would gather up leftovers and meet down at the weir to swim, catch up and eat more. Fantastic summer evenings.
The day lilies are blooming and I was greeted this morning by the yellow lilium! Nice start to the day!
Hope your week has started well!
