It will be a busy place at this homestead today. I'm going back to my voluntary job tomorrow after having two weeks off and I still have a few things to do before my holiday is over. First job will be to make sauerkraut from the cabbages pictured above and two others, they all still have to be picked and will be pickled absolutely fresh from the garden. I'll write about making sauerkraut, with photos, tomorrow.

After the big cabbage session, we'll go to our local garden centre to get some fine netting for our peach and nectarine trees. It's fruit fly season here, so the netting and Eco-Naturalure bait will help us deal with this horrible pest.

This afternoon, H and I will be in the garden. We have things to plant and the garden needs a good clean up after all that rain. We ended up with 423mm (16.5 inches) H took a reading that he didn't tell me about, so it was more what I originally thought.

In addition to the above, I'm baking bread and an apple spice cake and ironing. I hope you all enjoy your weekend. Thank you for stopping by. Take a minute to make a comment, even if you've never done so before. : )
