Okay, this is an attempt to blog via the app on my iPad, let's see if it turns out.
We've been busy getting an area ready to grow strawberries. Much digging ensues to rid the area of kikuyu, then barrowing in many loads of cow poo, a bucketful of blood and bone, and a handful of trace elements. Grab tiller 'The Hun' and churn it all into the ground to mix and make it fluffy. Steve built a big metal frame to go over the whole bed so we can net it to keep the pesky parrots out, then I planted about sixty strawberry plants. Oh the joy of things to come! :-)
Just have a look at our little lime tree! It is the image of health and vitality, having grown a trillion new leaves and is now groaning with the weight of many many blossoms.
And what better to do in a warm, cosy room is to watch the tellie and crochet a blankie with wool that's been in the cupboard for years and making me feel guilty that it hasn't been used. Since my hissy fit last week re the failed knitting attempt, I am now calm and content with my trusty crochet hook.
