After 3 days and 2 nights in hospital, I am now home again. The antibiotics settled down the infection and the colonoscopy revealed a minor infection with a few diverticulum present in the lower bowel. Nothing too much to worry about at this stage, I just have to make sure I have plenty of fibre in my diet. Good as gold.
As the old saying goes, there is no place like home. So true, and it is good to be back. A few tears of joy upon my return by Kim, a big hug and I felt complete.
I spent the afternoon pottering around the garden and observing. The only real work I did, was clean out the chook house which only took about 30 minutes. The rest of the time has been spent resting watching the chooks free range for about three hours.
The garlic is up, as are all of the onion, leek and beetroot. I found some rather sturdy tomato plants that had self seeded and potted them up and put them in the greenhouse. I will plant some more tomato seeds in the greenhouse when the moon is right.
So for the rest of the day, I rested. More gardening tomorrow though. I will be preparing some new beds, pulling out the rest of the old pumpkin vines and turning through some more manure. All ready for the broccoli and some cabbages in a few weeks time.
I love growing my own food. The garden is what I missed the most when I was laid up, and of course Kim and the kids! There is nothing quite like it.
