Back to Basics Week 13

My 13th entry for Belinda's Back to Basics Challenge.

Sowing or Planting:
This week there has been zero sowing or planting. It has simply been too wet. There has been quite a bit of sewing though.

  • zucchini
  • lettuce
  • herbs
  • carrots (thinnings aka baby carrots)
  • strawberries
  • cherries
  • mulberries
  • onions

A gang of gruesome cicada shells

Grace and Hope have been harvesting cicada shells too. Last year there were very few around but this year they are in large numbers.

Climbing Princess beans just starting to produce beans.
  • finally went to the kitchen showroom and made our choices. New year, new kitchen.
  • looking into purchasing some more registered suffolk ewes and a new ram next year


  • a lot of craft for gifts and for fun
  • logging up learner driver hours so our son can get his driver's licence
  • house painting is officially half finished (the weather has been against us all the way)


  • attended community Christmas tree lighting and met some new neighbours

Apparently it is hot work too, I think it was the humidity not sure. Love your banner picture. Reminds me of my childhood male turkey.
