Woke up this morning with only one thought..
“Yeay, I can spend time in the garden with The Other Half finishing all the projects.”
The Other Half pulak bangun asking UNenthusiastically, “Is there much that needs to be done in the garden?”
Walaupun he was unenthused, but after a cup of coffee and a few home-made blueberry, macadamia and white choc muffins, he straight away went into the garden with gusto.
See what a cup of coffee and great muffins can do to you, hahahaha…
Someone said the other day yang our garden must be the nicest looking garden on the street…
And I jawab, “jauh sekali! sebab I haven’t shown you our lawn yet! kalau you all tengok our lawn, mau pengsan agaknya “.
Ini rupa our lawn pagi tadi..
Penuh dengan dandelions!!!!!!!
Dandelions are pesky weeds, sangat lah senang nak membiak especially during wet Spring season.
And they are so difficult to cabut because they are quite deeply rooted. Memang kena spray with weed killer baru mati.
But kat Bunnings, ada jual dandelions ni under ‘herbs’ category sebab memang boleh makan the leaves as salad. Diaorang jual for $4/pot.
I rasa nak aje I suruh sape2 yang nak dandelions buat salad ni to come to my house and bersihkan my lawn from it, hehehe….
So, one of the jobs that The Other Half had to do tadi was to mow the lawn and to clean up the edges of the lawn.
Dah kemas sikit rupa our lawn petang tadi. But he still needs to poison the weeds tomorrow so tak membiak again.
And we also managed to go to our favourite Bunnings to buy a trellis and also a pot of raspberry and a pot of boysenberry.
We bought these 2 plants sebab nak letak against the fence on the other side of the house.
This is one of the vulnerable spots around of house, senang untuk pencuri panjat masuk to enter the undercover area.
Kat sini tak boleh nak letak broken glass sewenang2 nya along the fences to deter pencuri. Nak letak spiky things pun tak boleh rasanya.
Kalau people aka pencuri yang climb up the fences and cedera kena broken glass, we can be sued and held liable for the injuries. Stupid kan!
The next best thing is either to plant climbing roses that have loads of thorns or to plant berries that have loads of thorns as well.
We opted for berries. Tu yang beli raspberries and boysenberries because they have thorns! And they can grow quite tall and produce berries which is a big bonus .
the boysenberry plant.
the raspberry plant.
Tapi kan……nak tunggu dia besar and penuh thorns and memanjat the trellis tu, mau lah kot makan masa 2 tahun, itupun kalau tak mati lah, hahahahahahaha…..
So, since the berries have taken that spot, we had to move the watermelon pot further along the garden.
Our garden beds are also getting along quite nicely at the moment.
the kesum is happy and the kangkungs are slowly growing.
The zucchinis jangan cerita lah, mencanak2 naik nya .
The blueberry plants pun tersangat lah happynya.
Kalau all these blueberries menjadi semuanya, alangkah seronoknya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lepas habis The Other Half mowed the lawn and lepas we all siap membaja semua plants and the lawn, we let Miss 9 played in the sprinkler while the sprinkler is watering the lawn.
Ini lah yang dikata, sambil menyelam, sambil minum air, hehehe…
