Neglected

Oh, poor blog. Poor, forgotten blog.

One month since I have last posted. Simply unbelievable really. It seems I took an unannounced blogging break. And what do I have to say for myself?

Well, we have been busy, but hey we're always busy? Aren't we all? I guess it started when I was feeling a little under the weather and had a few too many commitments to honour and then I just sort of lost touch. The longer I left it, the harder it was to make a post.

But, I am back. I don't have an awful lot to show. (I haven't even been taking many photos. Now that is saying something!) But I do have a few projects up my sleeve, and a few things to share. I just had to make the first move and get back on track.

Here is your one solitary picture. It is the last of my summer vegetable garden harvest. I took this photo a few weeks ago.



This year is the first time we have planted potatoes. Boy, are they delicious! If you have a deep, neglected part of your garden, I recommend them. When I dug up/picked/collected this beautiful lot of produce I really had such deep satisfaction. I mean, anyone can grow lettuce and tomatoes, but potatoes and eggs...that's real self sufficiency.


Back soon, I promise.

Oooh, there is simply nothing better than freshly picked, home grown produce (I can still remember that sweet earthy smell of Grandad's carrots as he pulled them out of the ground). I finally have a piece of garden mapped out for veggies...but have yet to go dig it. At least we are coming into Qld winter here, so better veggie-growing weather. I really should get to it. Thanks for the inspiration :)
