Partner brings home from his building work any odds and ends that can be stored & each year you can buy a permit from our local council that allows you to go into the state park and collect firewood from any trees that have fallen over or laying on ground. They are usually huge & require chainsaws, trailers & a few strong men.

Strawberry Season in Full Swing

Have had much better strawberries growing this year, prolific amount of berries on each plant this season and all purchased at knock-down prices in the dead plant section after last season. Just planted them & they have all done well.

Markdowns From the Week

Have been mainly using up leftover salad and items from freezer so have not needed to purchase much produce this week. Should be the last week of purchasing tomatoes for awhile as most of my plants are ripening well now the hot weather has hit.
