Well I’m back. Two weeks of fun and games has come to an end, and the last of the house guests have returned home. It was sad to see them all go, but we treasured the short time we had.
Even the pumpkins are sad to see them go.
The weather over the last two weeks was more like late spring instead of a cold late autumn. Not a good sign for the future. My pear trees think it is spring and have blossomed for the first time ever. Doesn’t look like I am getting pears this year, because as soon as the first frost hits, they will drop off.
It is so quiet around here.
So what have Kim and I been doing to keep ourselves busy?
Well, today we taught a Soap Making Class in the Melton South Community Centre. It was a full class and ladies came from far and wide to learn the old skill of simple soap making.
Quite a few of the ladies were regular blog readers, so a big hello to you all. It was lovely to meet you and talk about all things sustainable living. It was one of the most enjoyable classes we have taught in ages. Mind you, all classes we teach are enjoyable!
When we got home, we crashed. After two weeks of rushing around and parties, we just fell into a heap. Thankfully, we have next weekend free to ourselves, so I will be pottering around the garden, making sure all the veggie beds are weed free, and plant a few more seeds to keep us in vegetables as the first round grows and nears harvest.
Don’t forget that it is World Environment Day on June 5th, so take the time to plant a tree, or educate others about how to lower our impact on the Earth. Everyone can do their bit.
I will be speaking at the Melton Community Hall at a private function about all the green things I do around here on our little suburban farm, which I am hoping will inspire others to make small changes of their own. I am looking forward to the event.
Which just reminds me that things don’t stay quiet around here for long!
