Monday Again

I cannot believe its monday again. The days and weeks are flying by so fast. This weekend we started on the hot house and got all the weeds out. Hubby will now rotaryhoe it a few times and then it will be ready to plant.
I dont know if everyone in Aussie land knows but a whole season of seedlings have been poisoned and come september the price of vegies will rise dramatically. This has put a firecracker under me and has got me into hight gear re planting the next crop.
So today I will sow my seeds and get them going and hopefully have them ready in about a month to go into the hothouse.
Last year I put in early tomatoes, capsicums and eggplants and we were eating home grown well before christmas.
Being able to grow your own helps to buffer you and your family from this little disasters. Not that having to buy them means we will starve, but why pay huge prices for things we can grow at home for a fraction of the cost.
So a big day of washing, which will get hung outside and not on cloths horses, yahy.
And house cleaning and sowing.
Then when that all gets done and afternoon, of craft me thinks.
Have a great day
see ya

Sounds like you have planned a fun day of hard work. I've just read in the newspaper that prices for fresh vegetables will increase with 30% here in Belgium. It's not why we do it but is sure is a great recommendation to plant some more!
