worst blogger... ever.

but firstly, a massive thank you to the lovely Kat at Family of Girls, who sent me these lovely dishcloths in a giveaway on her blog!
heh heh you know me well kat!!

other than that, i've been busy with a variety of different projects, i've finished one of my secret things, but can't share that til after xmas!! and i'll have a few other things finished over the next couple of days too.. but in the meantime....
our garden is going quite well, our strawberries have started ripening, but it's a fight between us & the ants as to who gets to eat them!

we've got quite a few boysenberries popping up on our plant, i ate the first one the other day even...
should have waited until it was *properly* ripe first though!

we've got radishes, beetroots, kale, silverbeet & rainbow chard, cabbages & another cauli all ready to eat, flowers on the potatoes, cucumbers & feijoa, and the first tiny tomatoes & mandarins are shaping up, and the pumpkin, peas, beans & garlic are all growing nicely.. sometime in the next few days i need to plant out our corn, more cucumbers & the sunflowers too...

it's quite impressive how much you can squeeze into a small space (we've got an 8.8sqm/94sqf patch, plus have bordered the front lawn with trees & dug up some of the tiny lawn), and ours is by no means optimised, but i'm fairly happy with how it is progressing! oh for enough space to lay down some decent beds though!

Your welcome :) Glad you liked them.
We had an ants problem in the strawberry patch aswell. I resorted to ant bait to get rid of them as we had eggs in clumps in the dirt. We are getting 1-2kg of strawberries a week from our patch now. There is enough in the freezor to have a go at making my first batch of jam :)
