Playing in the dirt vege garden planting out new seedlings.


Seeing how things are growing……

A fancy lettuce (never mind the weeds)


Checking on my newest seedings –

watermelon, rockmelon, cucumber & capsicum

Annoying the PSLS

Sitting back and letting the kids water in the seedlings

We are hoping to be able to make a completely ‘home grown salad’ for Christmas lunch this year.

I think we are well on our way. 🙂

I luvs me some watermelon.

2. Dina - September 7, 2008

I am SO impressed–maybe because I can’t manage to grow anything.

I think the idea of growing your own salad is awesome.

PSLS is such a sweetie. *giggles*

4. river - September 7, 2008

Weeds? What weeds? All I see is green stuff…….

And a homegrown salad for Christmas, sounds great.

Hey Bettina,
I didn’t know you were a gardener too. Isn’t it the greatest, watching things grow? Going to the garden for your supper? I love it. Your plants look gorgeous too – I’m so impressed.

Oh yum – we have some 4ft cos heading towards seed at the moment so unless we want a VERY bitter Christmas salad will have to do a bit more planting…

11. anja - September 8, 2008

Where the heck does hooker heels think watermelons come from? *sniggers*

12. kin27 - September 8, 2008

Home grown salad for Christmas lunch sounds like a delicious plan.

15. Bettina - September 9, 2008

Evyl – watermelon is good stuff!

Dina – thanks. We’ve had a few half hearted attempts over the years, but this time we’ve got the room and the right aspect to actually get somewhere with it.

Anja – yes, yes he is lol

river – you’re too kind lol

Gem – I think it’s a good goal and great that the kids are happy to be involved.

PQ – thanks. We are really enjoying it.

Kelley – of course you can grow watermelon! Where did you think it came from? lol

Jayne – pop in anytime 🙂

Annie – thanks. Who would have thought that growing your own produce gave so much pleasure? 😉

Jeanie – I think so lol

Anja – perhaps she thinks the workers shit them instead of picking them? lmao

Kin – awww, I’m sure you’ll have it happy again in no time 🙂

WS – nah, I do little bits here and there, but do a lot of watching PSLS slaving with a shovel or rake……… lol

Marita – that’s what I think 🙂
