Belinda's Back to Basics Challenge Update

Sowing seed or Planting

Not much gardening has happened this week. The heat has hit so most of the effort has been in keeping things alive. The water from the washing machine is being used on pot plants and anything else that needs it.

Planning for The Future
Started checking what seeds I need to purchase for winter planting.

Menu planning is still happening. My daughter is helping out which is great. The menu features a lot of her favourite meals.

Monday: Warm chicken salad with fresh rolls
Tuesday: Chilli con Carne
Wednesday: Quiche with salad
Thursday: Curry Chicken
Friday: Tacos
Saturday: BBQ sausages with salad
Sunday: leftovers

Working for the Future
More fire prevention work - the gutters are finished, the foliage is cut back, firewood removed from around the house and the verandah cleaned up. The fire hose has been checked and the metal buckets stacked under the verandah. We still need to run the fire pump to check everything was OK but it was checked not so long ago. Now fingers crossed that we won't need to put all this preparation to use.

Building Community
I staffed on a camp for the Girl Guides. We took a group of girls away for the week end and all had a good time.

Learn a new Skill
No new skill.
