With the convenience of the internet....I downloaded another copy of my camera's manual....and after searching and reading...and taking lots of photos of my hand...it was finally time to venture outside with all my newly learnt knowledge.....If I could only remember it all once I got in the garden, that would be great.
I did it!
|Choko flowers, although I don't think I will get another crop,|
with colder nights I am finding little teeny choko's falling on the ground by morning.
|Aloe Vera flower|
|Chinese Water Chestnuts starting to show their new shoots.|
|More Chinese Water Chestnuts peeking through|
along with Peppermint saying hello
|Can you see the root system on the Ferny Azolla|
I must say; I had fun seeing how close I could get to the fernia-azola....Tomorrow I need to drain some water out of the water garden (the old laundry sink) and drill an overflow hole in the side. With each rainfall, I am finding small pieces of the azola on the pavers, being washed out of the water garden...I have been collecting them when I see them on the ground and putting them in another rain-filled bucket. The water garden is overflowing and becoming very crowded....I will need to work on building another water garden soon....... but for now.........
While I have the drill out, I also need to do the following:
- Drill some drainage holes in 3 new pots for the front garden.
- Drill and plug some hanging hooks in the brick work on the front veranda so I can hang some items up.
- Build a scooter so I can get under the unit easier to harvest mushrooms in the cold weather.
When I get out the power tools, I try to have a list of things that need to be finished....Often I feel like I am putting away every power tool and accessory we own....but that's only because I get right into it and usually ending up doing a whole lot more than what's on my list.
I guess I have some work to do tomorrow....but I'm onto it already with work clothes soaking overnight already in the washing machine....
What's on your to-do list for tomorrow? or today?
