Missed One

 we all missed spotting this zucchini in the veggie patch.
It weight in at 1.7kg.
It has now been turned into soup and
tucked away in the freezer.

A Day On The Green

Last weekend,
 we had a couple of child free days at Halls Gap.
The village was packed with visitors for
The Halls gap Jazz Festival.

It was great to see the visitors in town
after the debarcle over the states first
"Code Red Fire Day"
when accomodation was cancelled
left, right and centre.
Everywhere you went you could hear music,
and boy, those Jazz enthusiasts
sure do know how to have a great time.

We met up with friends Ross & Lyndal at
The Day On The Green
at Seppelt Wines Great Western.
The weather was perfect, great crowd
and fantastic atmoshere.

Along with Evermore

There were lots of Horsham locals
in attendence

Whooa and boys, Tex & Archie

Dean & Lisa

Matt & Vernetta

Keryn & Tony

Matt & Janene

Matt & friends

Jacqueline & Stacey

Ross & Paul (our local press photographer)

This mum and her young son came up from Melbourne,
they danced all afternoon and all evening,
he danced on the esky.
They had a fantastic time,
you could clearly see what a wonderful relationship they had.

Poor Peter, towards the end of the evening,
(it was dark)
he went for a walk and bumped into a bit of wood.
It hit his shin, it bled, he put a bandaid on.
Sunday the leg was a bit sore.
Went home to Horsham,
by Sunday night, he was in alot of pain,
 Monday morning he could not stand
and was in excrutiating pain.
Admitted to hospital for 3 days with a very infected leg.
It is now a week since the incident,
he can only just put weight back on the leg.

Get well soon Peter
the veggie patch is missing you!

See you at A Day On The Green next year,
Peter will be the one with a lamp attached to his head.

The Carrot Smell

I needed to grate some carrot tonight.
Off to the vegie patch I went.
We have had a constant supply of home grown carrots
since 1st October, there will be
many more months of supply as we have done
staggered plantings over the summer.

The carrots we harvest are not as uniform and perfect
as their supermarket "very distant cousins"
There is always great exitement when we find odd ones.
Our carrots have a wonderful smell and taste.
I can tell you
Supermarket carrots do not smell like carrots at all.

And, what is with these?
They were all in a row,
Sort of look like they have exploded under ground.
Does anyone know how this happens?
Too much water
Not enough water
Too hot, Too cold
Harvested to late

Have a great weekend
Jacqueline :)

Buried Treasure

A couple of weeks ago, we had our annual spud harvest.

It was a "boys only" job

The varieties planted were Nicola, Desiree and Charlotte.
Peter was a little disappointed, he expected many more
from one whole bed dedicated to spuds.

The big goal was to find the oddest shapes.
It's been a long wait for the boys,

Jacqueline :)
