Down came the rain

What a great turn out for the working bee last saturday considering the weather was pretty yuck. Thanks to all you amazing ladies (and Hamish, but he kind of has no choice really) for getting into the rain and mud and making it an enjoyable afternoon digging and weeding. If you weren’t enjoying it you were doing a top impression.

We were digging three holes up by the vege garden ready for our donated trees from Mount Eden Village People so I’d like to say a big thank you to those guys also for the trees. Check out their website and you’ll see they are doing some great community work up there. I’d love to see something similar in Sandringham, but one thing at a time I guess.

We also did some pruning of grape vines and passion fruit vines and did a general clear up and re-mulch. It’s looking very tidy now and all ready for Spring. I am going to a fruit tree pruning workshop this weekend, held by the Mt Eden Village People as it happens, so I will soon have a better idea of what I’m supposed to do in that area. It is important to know that some trees produce their fruit on new growth and some on wood that is 2 years old etc etc, so pruning incorrectly can really mess up your fruit harvest. I have read plenty, but will be good to ask questions and get answers from the experts.

Ok folks, latest photos, taken Saturday afternoon of August 7th 2010
