Raised beds are the best. You can see what is going on easily. Weeds are right there, easy to pick out. Add to that the fact that my Christmas present last year was worms, as we no longer had our chooks. Worm wee is great fertiliser. Maybe, just maybe, as the garden is small, just a stone's throw from the back door and we no longer have water worries we are looking after it....just a thought.
Anyway, things have thrived and we are enjoying it all.
While on the topic of bikes, we headed off for another weekend. This time to the Butterball Classic Motorcycle Rally, based at Albury. We used to attend this rally for a few years in the early 90s and thoroughly enjoyed it. Life has since got in the way and we've never been back. We heard that this year's is to be the last in this format, so we thought we'd better make the effort to go. We are so glad we did.
The markets were good, as usual and a few bits and bobs came home.
I was happy to run into Dzintra and her family while there. We now look forward to catching up at Nundle.
On the Sunday we made a detour to Bungendore, as they had their quilt show on. No photos allowed, but it was good to see some quilts hanging around the town.
Meanwhile, some stitching had to be done to send off to Carole in the USA for the Secret Santa Christmas Swap. I made it on time.......just.
And, finally, the garden had progressed by the end of the month, with us picking zucchini, spinach, rhubarb and snow peas. The feijoa tree at the back door was putting on a display and attracting lots of birds, which was nice.
So that wraps up November. I'm tired just thinking about it, considering we were both working full time as well. OK, we did take one Friday off.
