Homeschool convention season ended this weekend and with it, my last trip for the year for my business. It was a great weekend in Johannesburg and it is always a blessing to encourage other homeschool moms.
The double blessing is that each year when I go to JHB my business partner comes along. We get to see each other at this once a year event and share 3 days together catching up and sharing...so good.
Weeds...weeds...weeds...I have decided to call my garden a mature garden on account of the weeds. We picked up a sticky weed through some horse manure and this horrible plant grows everywhere. So on Sunday afternoon when I got in from the airport I decided that there is no time like now and got stuck in.
Garlic was dug up as the leaves had turned yellow...a very dissappointing harvest I must have done something wrong! But we managed a plait and the ones that broke off are being used already.
Onions are being harvested and used daily...some bulbs are developed others are used as spring onions. I need to empty the bed soon for the next marrow planting.
Weeding between corn and tomato plants took most of the time on Sunday and things look promising all around.
Last year I used old CD's to scare the birds away as they reflect in the sunlight and it worked well, so I had better rig that up again.
Even though there is soo much to do, I am glad that I can put away my bags and wrap up the year now...and there is nothing like being home!
Mmmh...East West Homes Best!
