Men and fish are alike. They both get into trouble when they open their mouths. ~Author Unknown
We've barely put our vegetable garden in & already we are picking from it. The lettuce ~ after I picked enough for 5 people for dinner. We don't pull our lettuce. We simply pick the outside leaves until it gets too hot & it starts to run to seed. Then we pick it! The tomatoes alongside them Dino has staked & they are already flowering.
And the beans! Their prisitne white is so pretty & the spindly stalks are barely strong enough to carry the heavy heads of flowers. The promise of good things to come.
Cucumbers ~ or maybe rockmelons. Someone muddled the punnets & Dino can't remember what he planted where. Not that anyone cares. Whatever it is it will get eaten.
Last thing Saturday Dino got a call to say the wheat harvest starts Monday & to get his butt down there pronto! So yesterday he ran round like a mad thing trying to organise himself. This morning I am missing plates ~ after I asked him to use the camping set! Not as nice to eat of I know but far cheaper to replace if they don't come home. *sigh* Oh, well.
And food. The men have workers' sheds with bunk accommodation but they don't provide a cook so I threw in noodles & baked beans to hold them till they could shop. Stodge I know but food is food & who knows when they'll be able to get into town. I put him & the friend's car on yesterday's barge for the 8 ~ 10 hour drive, which I hope they made ok. The lad promised to ring when they got there. Still waiting. Obviously he forgot.
Anyway he was no sooner of the island than Kirby was in the boat. The new boat. The one Dino will use to crab with.
The Captain greeting his crew. A good thing they couldn't figure out how to make it go but they investigated all the possibilities.
So for two days & 10 hours Star is an only child again. She is enjoying it. Tuesday Theo arrives. I believe Dino has organised for me to pick him up but no~one has actually spoken to me & I have no idea when his plane gets in ~ & Theo never answers his phone. Oh yeah!
