Rain and busy bees...

The rain falling last night

I love this rain we're having. It's beautiful, it's soaking into the soil, it's cleansing the Earth, the sky, my soul. The plants are thriving, the dam is overflowing, the tank almost full.

But I do hope it lets up by the weekend. This Saturday we are planning a little working bee.

With the promise of food and booze (lemonade and juice for the non-drinkers) we have lured some of our nearest and dearest to put in a day of hard graft for us. Well probably not so hard...

We are hoping to get some gardens mulched and to finish painting the house after all these months. Peace keeps coming up with more possible jobs for the list but I've reminded him that the working bee only goes for a day not a week!

The list of jobs to do on the property and house is endless. It seems that as soon as we complete one job another five have been added to the bottom of the list. So we decided that what we'd really like for xmas is some help around the place.
So I'll be busy tomorrow and Friday prefaring my post-working bee feast (which will include something made out of Zucchini) and scrubbing the house clean for painting.




And for hippymummy, a Zucchini, albeit a hail damaged one!

What a brilliant idea! Now that IS a good gift to ask for! I hope you get all your jobs done and the weather holds off for you **fingers crossed**
Thanks too for the pic, now i know what you're talking about! Lol!!! It looks like an aubergine doesn't it. I wonder why it's called a zucchini? Strange word eh? As is aubergine for that matter. Hmm....

LOL! I should have taken a pic of my first Zuchinni, it was good! But I ate it! Along with the first lettuce, cucumbers, fancy lettuce types, truss tomatoes, spinach etc etc etc. I could not help it, really I could not! he he! Last year! My first crop, I swear I took lots of pics! This year I just got straight to the cooking and eating part.

Am I just dumb? But is an aubergine, not an eggplant?
