Sowing seed or Planting –

  • A punnet of beetroot seedlings that I raised
  • 4 capsicum that I raised


  • Baby cos lettuce
  • lemon bottlebrush
  • basil
  • corriander
  • corn
  • Yet to plant – spring onions, leeks, celery

Potting up

  • Haven’t done it yet but I need to pot up all of my asparagus seedlings that have emerged over the past fortnight

Planning for The Future

  • Trying to get together enough punnets to plant out all the summer crops again in January just in case
  • Reworking gift lest for next year to see which ones I can make & what to make
  • Bottling excess Cherries
  • making garden maps for the Beechworth Property
  • Writing lists of what works (food wise) over Christmas for future years

Working for the Future –

Managing Stores

  • Mostly waiting for the garden to begin producing, the apricots at the block are almost ready so what doesn’t get eaten over Christmas will become jam if there is enough

Building Community –

  • Playing mid week tennis & met a woman who was in the next room with her baby the day I was born!
  • Toy Library Duty (both mine & filling in for others) & joined the committee.  Taking on the role if finding funding to upgrade our toys & buy new ones – tired of constant raffle tickets!

Learn a new Skill –

  • Made my first ever Christmas cake – today will be Plum Pudding & maybe mince tarts time allowing…

Before going in the oven for 3 hours!
