Pumpkin Frame

Pumpkins seem to love to grow up trellis or wire netting. This year Daniel made me a pumpkin frame from tree branch trimmings and some scraps of fencing wire. The plants needed a bit of encouragement to start their climb up and over. Now there are some pumpkins forming. I wished I weeded a bit better when the plants were little as many plants didn’t survive the resulting shade nor find their way onto the frame.

Christmas 2016

We did church at 9:30am with various family members taking part. Next we had Christmas Lunch with 2x grandparents, siblings and cousins. Lots of laughs with Adelaide’s new game, and David as a funny Santa. Happy Birthday Jesus: We are so glad you came!

Lily’s Beauty and the Beast Birthday

What a sweet present Lily was nine years ago. She wanted a dress like Belle’s for her birthday. Nan and Susie found some satin at Creative Junk for $2 and Nan made it into a costume. She had a Belle birthday cake that Susie made, they watched the movie of Beauty and the Beast and she built up her Belle’s castle lego set gift.

Seed Planters

These are my seed planters for 2016. They planted zucchini, cabbage, onion, leek and cucumber seeds in trays and other containers ready for a new growing season. Thanks people! It feels great to have these things planted and in the greenhouse.
