The weather can only be relied on to be unpredictable right now. The few spring-like days were replaced this morning by a fiercely cold wind and low temperatures. It can also be relied on that it will be dry with not a hint of rain around which isn't a good sign for the spring and summer ahead. We'll see!
|The shed garden|
What have I been doing? Well besides taking some time off on Friday and heading off to have lunch with some fellow bloggers, I have been busy. Doing some tidying up in the paddocks, gardening, the usual household chores and missing Our Grace while she is on a school camp at the snow. I did have a cold for a few days too but I'll forget about that.
|Finger lime- Rick's Red|
Yesterday I weeded and pruned in the shed garden. It's a low maintenance area which gets watered rarely and weeded even less. I did find some new little finger limes on my tree. It has been in the ground for a few years now and last year was the first time it produced on mass. By the looks of it, it should do well again this year. When I bought my tree from Daley's, I couldn't find them in the garden centres but now they are quite readily available. I might get another one of a different variety if I can work out where to put it.
After recovering from helping Tim lift this beast into place , I've been left the task of putting it back together. So far I have managed the doors which were easy enough and the grate in the firebox.
I'm not good at jigsaw puzzles because I lack the essential patience but I am hoping to make an outdoor pizza/bread oven out of it. If not, it is so heavy that it will just have to stay put and taunt me each time I walk by. We'll see!
