Peas are putting out climber shoots..
The only down side so far has been a few snail eaten plants, we've tried beer with no luck so this afternoon I sprinkled rock salt around the leafy greens to see how it goes.
These two pots (with passion fruit) will sit either side of an arbor (?) and so they can climb. The pots are to keep them in place and stop them spreading too far.

Spring has most definitely sprung! Lots and lots of growth and flower buds and the like happening. This is our Peach tree about to shoot leaves.

So I think I can probably get the hang of this spinning caper.. but I think I need a 'real' teacher in place of youtube & books to get the 'feel' of things..
That there is my first go so not TOO bad.. I got it onto the spindle (which is more than can be said for the second go just now).
During the week I visited Ewe Given Me the Knits and bought some oh so lovely Merino and Blue Faced Leicester to spin with.. I will definitely be buying from Mandie again, the fibre is divine and her service is exceptional :D I purchased 1 x High Tower 1 x Eucalypt Merino 1 x Beige Merino and 2 x Mulled Wine Merino and I cannot wait to see them spun up(once I can spin OK)

Feisty Wench who has loaned me her first Spinning Wheel to try/learn on!! What a generous and lovely offer it was :) I made a trip across town yesterday to collect the wheel. So exciting!! BUT - I seriously have NO IDEA how it works, although I figured out the pedal part! I have decided to stalk my local spinners guild for advice & tips (yes - we actually have one - how cool!??)

As for this one, well the jury is still out, but it is potentially a Sweet Corn plant (hubby thinks it's weed!!)

So we have a strawberry pot near the front door, and (up 'til Saturday) we had a *sad* Coriander plant needing a home. A quick trip to the nursery and we have a matching pot with herbs :) Coriander (much happier) and mint in the top, chives, garlic chives, mint and thyme in the sides..
