The Vege Garden.............

The summer vege garden really doesn't have much in it as it is way to hot here.
Herbs are all doing well but that is about it.

I have been spending time in the green house as it is very cool. I have a grapevine growing over it as well so it is the perfect spot on a hot summer day when you want to be out side.

I took a lot of cuttings in spring and this week they have gone out into the garden.
Now I need to get in and take some more as it is looking bare in here.

 The lettuce and bok choy seeds I planted on Sunday are already up.
I have been growing my lettuce in here as it doesn't bolt to seed that way.

The glass is another shady spot in the late afternoon with grape vine growing on it as well.
The succulents love it in here all year round.

As you can see I took this photo mid day and it is very shady.

This is my most favorite spot looking out to the vege garden, at the end you can see the green house and how it is very covered in vine.

Most of the vege beds look like this one bare...I am getting ready to sow carrots in this one in a week or two.

My little bird feeder I made from chipped china,
my new found fun making garden art from old china.

Bruce has been making these mini glass houses and selling them as fast as he makes them.
Lucky we have a good supply of windows...

How is your vege garden going through summer?
it does make it hard doesn't it.

We are really battling the heat lately in the garden and I am thank full I have a good under water supply for the garden....as we have missed out on most of the rain this summer...

Enjoy your week

Any-one still there...........

If there is any one out there 

I couldn't even begin to catch up on all that has happened since I last blogged.
So I will not even try..

 We have had some good rain this year so the garden is looking green.
The herbs are doing well in the vege patch but it is too hot to grow any thing else really.

We did get a wonderful crop of grapes this year, green grapes are my favorite.
There was plenty to share as well.

I have been filling in gaps in the garden beds....Lots of cuttings in September saw me able to start filling them up.

My favorite thing at the moment is edging...
I have always done the edges with my shovel and it is hard work. When we visited Tenterfield in September, we were visiting a garden and I asked how she got her edges so perfect.

Well she got her petrol edger out and showed me
and it was love at first sight.
Thankfully I have a son that works in a mower shop that was able to get one for me.
And I love it.....so easy to use...
I think those edges speak for themselves....hahaha

We are still doing markets and had a lot at the end of 2016, no
more now until March as we are having a break from them.

Opening our shop back up here has also kept us very busy, as 
it has been very busy. We only open 3 days a week...
Friday-we still have craft as well here
Sunday.....I also have a business partner and she works Sundays for me.
Loving having my shop open again and sharing all I make and vintage treasures that I find.

Life is good and I am enjoying 
my little shop, my family is growing all the time.
We have 3 grand babies due this year.
God is good and has blessed me in so many ways.

Thanks for dropping by......
