Survived my first week back at work and was looking forward to a busy weekend. Saturday saw us heading to The Handmade Expo at Ipswich. I love this market and love being a stallholder at this market. Why you ask? Firstly it is all handmade. No imports all handmade or homegrown goodies so I know plenty of love has been put into each item. It is great to catch up with fellow stallholders which we now call them our friends. Plus the ladies who run this market are truly amazing. Thanks Miriam, Liesa and Micky for always making us feel welcome. Even though the weather wasn't the best we still had a fantastic day.
Early to bed on Saturday night because a busy day planned for Sunday. A great Sunday Breakfast of Bacon, Eggs, Tomatoes, Baked Beans, Toast and Juice then off to the Treasure Market at the Dakibin Recyling Centre. I needed to find wire, star pickets, pots, etc to finish my vegie patch. This was an easy find. For a small amount of $35 we managed to pick up about 10 metres of fencing wire, 6 very large star pickets some bread trays and some pots. This time we were prepared and bought the trailer along. After this we headed to Bunnings to pick up soon soil, compost, sugar cane mulch, ant powder (we have a very bad infestation of ants in the lawn) and a punnet of corn and a paw-paw plant. I checked out the price of fruit trees for pots and thought this could wait until next week.
After spending the afternoon in the garden and planting all our seedlings. Bill put up the wire on the fence I decided to make a yummy Passionfruit Cheesecake and a caramel, chocolate pie for dessert. I truly cannot wait until I can pick my own vegies and eat my own fruit.
I hope you all had a great weekend. I certainly did.
