rocket launch

Remember this little salad patch?



I can't believe I've actually managed to grow some food.



Friends for lunch last Saturday, rocket and feta salad for the table. 






And this is what happens when Adam (thanks for the photos babe) tells you he's taking a photo of the baby. Snot. Taking a photo of me with salad hanging out of mouth. Super attractive. 



In other news, we had a visitor this week!



Real life Australian fauna, in my front yard. So excited. 



The echidna and I, we hung out. I asked if she could stay till Henry and Tilly came home. She said 'no,' and 'lady those shoes are clapped out.' 


'Yeah but they're two of the same shoe Mrs Tiggywinkle,' I replied. 'We're on the way.'

She got bored with my chit chat and trundled off towards the dam where the big black snake lives. 

I tried to encourage her to go the other direction but the geese were bothering her and I said, 'Well Tiggy, you're on your own, but feel free to drop in anytime.' And she said, 'I'm an echidna, not a hedgehog you doofus, and who has time to iron and starch these days anyway?' 

(I didn't tell her my washing was all wet and stinkarooney in the machine. She's still a new friend.)

Cool echidna! We’ve got one who wanders through our block on his way down to the river occasionally. I discovered this week that we have heaps of turtles in our dam, too. I was going to try stocking it with yabbies, but now I’m thinking they’d just be really expensive turtle food.

I love this post!
I love that you have rocket hanging out of your mouth.
Makes me feel so normal.
AND thank you so much for your last post.
I feel like so many wheels have fallen off this week, we could build an earthship out of them.
And how many times is too many times to put the same load of washing on yet again??

Nice rocket, but it’s the silver beet in the background I’m impressed with.

Your pictures made me smile – it is amazing what you can do when wearing your little one in a sling. Gardening, fruit picking, floor washing – even going to the loo! Hurray for slings and hurray for growing your own!

Oh an echidna! Lovely! Your garden pics are just great – gardening with a baby on your back – wonderful!
