We’ll walk again soon!!  It’s glorious and I didn’t plant anything new this year except for the petunias, sweet potato vine, and more that  my daughter bought for me on Mother’s Day and the flat of begonias Eddie bought for me.

  2. Colin, You always make me smile and you are so right about city folks that haven’t a clue about really GOOD food. We are so blessed!!

  3. Beautiful. I wouldn’t have the slightest idea of how to garden in such an area. Only drought and wind and heat tolerant for me! And now the grasshoppers are devouring everything in their sight.

    Hi Rita

    Your garden is a triumph for you.
    You would have got on VERY well with my grandparents
    who besides like you having properties at some stage
    to work – cattle! – always had magnificent flower, shrub and vegetable gardens – of course manure was easily obtainable – ha ha.
    They were garden proud.
    I don’t think either grandparents ever went to a green grocer
    shop for vegetables – even in retirement in Sydney, they had
    incredible vegetable and flower gardens.
    The so-called vegetables labelled as fresh in supermarkets
    is nothing but blatant lies! And as for the egg department,
    anyone can tell with a smitten of intelligence what is a fresh egg and an old egg!
    Regretably city slickers don’t possess this intelligence, if they did
    and boycotted egg buying it might wake the supermarket chains up.
    We live in hope. ????????????
    Cheers from a summer like day here when it is WINTER!!!
    I am in a T-Shirt and shorts at present.
    The rain hopefully has departed to where it is needed and that is not
    over the bloody Pacific Ocean – ha ha.
