The tomatoes are still green, all of them, it's quite depressing. But I suppose it's teaching me patience. The zuchs are still coming, as are the beans, lettuce and rocket. I don't really understand it as this summer has been the best with regards to lots of sunshine and warm weather. I suppose when they do all come in I'll be very busy in the kitchen!
There's something happening with Eddie the chook too. She started laying on the 1st February and then Patsy started a week later, so for a week I was getting 2 eggs per day. But this week Eddie has laid some very strange ones. There's been a couple of water bombs (eggs without shells), one of which had two yolks and one one day she laid the water bomb and then another tiny water bomb. Luckily Patsy has carried on as usual so I am getting one egg at least. If I didn't know how young Eddie was I'd think she was menopausal!
Then to top it off, both M and I were made unemployed today by Peter Garrett. Yes, we were in the insulation business but as of now the program is dead. It is meant to start again by June, (how we're meant to survive (and our work team) with no income until then he didn't say) but with the changes planned, I can't see our local population being able to afford to pay up front and then claim it from medicare. So the scheme that was meant to assist the battlers will become totally out of their grasp. Okay, rant over, it's just that when you comply with every rule and regulation, and wait sometimes months for the government to pay what they owe you, pay all costs to ensure that staff are trained as required, to have your business taken away and have to tell staff that there's no more work, it stinks.
Anyway I'm sure something will turn up.
Have a good weekend everyone.
