When we had surplus apples from our tree we started dehydrating them . We liked them so much and found them a very portable convenient snack that I have done some more.
I am closely watching the persimmon tree. The wasps have already found it and are hollowing out unripe fruit. I will start picking some to ripen inside or they might win.
At 5pm on Wednesday last I came to the very last Kiwifruit vine I had to do a final thin of rejects from. Yahoo!
The kiwis are looking great and it is only a couple of weeks till picking time.
Notice in the top left corner the holes in the leaves from the hail storm we had last November.The vines grew enough new leaves to carry the crop and we have had so much rain that helped too.
The rib stretched out to show the lovely wool.
I have now finished knitting this vest for Grandson.
I have also sewn him a potty warmer ( stop laughing! )
His Mum got the idea from this site.
Finally I have joined the craze of the moment doing English Paper piecing.
I needed a new hand sewing project to take to club and am making a table runner to start with. More about this as I progress. 75 % of the ladies in our P & Q group are EPPing at the moment.
