On a spur of the moment this morning, Kate and I threw some clothes on and headed to a place we love but haven't been for ages - Lesmurdie Falls, which is just a five minute drive from our house. Ella wanted to stay home and pack to go to a friends and Phil wasn't well, so just the two of us set off. It was lovely up there after all the rain, and quite a few walkers as well. Kate had no knee pain and she forgot her knee support. It was great getting back to the thing she loved!
The winter garden has been growing well. We pick some beans and snow peas nearly everyday. Cherry toms too, although there aren't any ripe right now, there are a ton that will be soon. There are lots of flowers on the capsicums, so I am expecting a pretty good crop. The kale is being used nearly everyday (it's a superfood!) that I think I need more than two plants. The guinea pigs get a little bit each day too, which they love. We are getting through the lemons, especially with 2/4 sickies in this household, so there are honey and lemon drinks being made. Silverbeet is plenty, some for us, some for the chooks and a bit for the guinea pigs.
