of phew!

well, here I am, back again, it’s very plain looking but I’ve worked out the new password thingo and I’m good to go …b it sad about pics etc but I’ve got most of them elsewhere so I guess no big deal – anyone know how to do a copy of all posts to a safe place? I’m sure there must be some way and I know it’s probably easy but I’ve really just no interest whatsoever in the technical side eg working stuff out so if anyone can point me in the right direction that’d be great.

In other news … can’t remember where I got up to but red gates are on, gabions are finished, we’ve worked out which solar gate opener we’ll be buying (when the tax cheque comes!), and that’s about it.

We planted 2 blueberries today (Brigitta and (I think) Northcote), to go with the other four poor neglected little bushes, they will be getting lots of tender loving care in the second week of my hols (first week we’re away to hopefully warmer climes) -used my own home made compost (yay!) and free pine bark mulch from the forestry up the road (also yay!) … am researching what other plants I can use that little resource on as I’m liking the free part very much – and the just up the road part, and the entertainment for JD the Wonder Dog part (he does like a good snuffle around).

Thankfully I don’t have a bunged up back this winter (SO yay!) so I will be able to give the orchard some tender loving care – of which it got absolutely none last year and hence basically just sat there this year – though the cherry trees did have some fruit so maybe they like a little neglect …

Anyway, that’s it for now, off to do some research (after a little facebooking of course!) 🙂
