What an inspiring talk by Annemarie and Jeff from Berryman Farms in Greenwood last night at Garden Club. Annemarie has so much knowledge, she has been growing heritage veg for 35 years. Only bought one tomato, an indeterminate Roma type - Amish Paste. Will definitely have to stop by their farm next time we head to Nelson.
Planted our seeded plants out today - eggplants, tomatoes, peppers and celery. I am really hoping that one of the eggplants will be an Indian one. They got a bit mixed up in the seed trays! Still have to prick the leeks out and do second seedings of carrots, radish, beets.
Tried the first Icicle Radish yesterday - excellent, nice and sharp, clean bite with good spice.
I think I can start to seed part of the cutting garden, since we almost have a meeting of the minds as to how that area of the garden should proceed! I would still like to work in a dry stream bed look, but my opinion isn't counting!!
What a fabulous drying day! Washed all the towels from the Cabana, and had them bone dry in less than 35 minutes. The smell so fresh, nice and crisp on your skin, a a lovely natural, gentle exfoliation!
Whilst looking at the towels on the line, I realised that the Cabana goes through a lot of 'sets'of towels. This fact I realised some time ago, so I resorted to buying white towels. As soon as one part of a set has a stain, like inadvertent lipstick or make-up, I have always assumed the whole set to be out of commission as one can't put out odd towels.
The Eureka moment was that all those odd towels are still excellent towels and the Cabana should be having harlequin sets of towels. Hope our guests agree, as this will be a new policy forthwith!! We can't be wasting towels like this! Definitely not a sensible ecologic choice. Besides, Matt thinks it is a real bonus, now the guys will know which is their towel!
