Take delight

A few weeks ago when the crabapple was in flower I planted out the vegetable garden beds. Soon after many of the seedlings fed blackbirds, bowerbirds or possums (not sure which) but they have left me a few lettuce and a tomato that has flowers so hopefully some tasty treats a little further down the track.

Psalm 37:3-4 New International Version (NIV)
"Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart."


  1. Everything looks so green there. Most of the leaves have fallen here.

  2. The hot weather has wiped out a lot of our seedlings as well as other critters. We can only replant and leave them in the shade.

  3. I think I can see some "half-hearted" netting around the raised beds. You could get Ian to construct something more lasting. It would be a shame to waste the work done thus far.

    Seems cruel, but I will post an image of my veggie patch. Don't look if you don't want to cry!

    1. Just read the other comments. On a hot day, eg Saturday just gone, I might water my potted veggies (tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, capsicum) three times a day. On Saturday, they were already wilting at 8am!

  4. No netting at all. Was thinking of trying again with some netting in place. Pas for watering on hot days. I just don't have time for that much fuss and was in Clandulla anyway. Fortunately not as hot here.
