Knitting.

Autumn means it is going to get cooler in the coming months. ( though you wouldn't think so the last few hot days. ) Today it's pouring down.
 I already had this wool, a lovely marled 4ply , to knit another jersey for Grandson. I'm using a tried and trusted pattern. It's strange how the wool always looks more interesting in the ball than when it's knitted.

 I am pretty much back to doing everything except Kiwifruit work.( Just keeping my arm plastered as per instructions and making sure I don't bump it. ) ( getting it wet is ok now .)  
  The garden got a growth spurt of weeds with me out of action for a couple of weeks. I've been trying to do a couple of hours weeding out of the sun each of the last few days. Mainly in the vege garden where produce is still growing.
 Some time ago I posted photos of Grandson helping with the planting of these gladioli. It was very late in the season to be putting them in. They have come up well but show no sign of forming flower buds. They are possibly too shaded, so I cut back the over hanging Luculia tree, put in more stakes to tie them up gave them another round of blood and bone and some sheep pellets and a thin covering of potting mix. I cant think what else to do to encourage flowering. Maybe some more worm pee. I scattered in a packet of Thumbelina Mixed Zinnias around their feet that might still have time to grow.
With the down pour we are getting today everything will be watered so that's one less job. I do however have to venture out to pick courgettes and beans and cucumbers.
 The passion fruit are finished now and were a big success.....one fruit the birds did not attack.

Beautiful colours in the wool you're using, reminds of heather on the moors. Pleased to read that you're gradually getting back into the garden, the weeds have shot up here in Auckland but I haven't been out to deal to them yet, hopefully this weekend. I have two colours of gladioli in the garden, the earlier ones are scarlet with yellow throat and they used to live in my Dad's garden in Napier, I brought a few up her 13 years ago and they see happy. The other ones are a soft peach and believe i or not they were in the garden here when we bought the house - 33 years ago - and still they come up and flower!
