Vegie Patch

The vegie patch is still growing even though it has been very neglected over summer. We have had lots of (oddly) shaped Lebanese cucumbers, zucchinis, beans and the tomatoes are just starting thanks to a very cold December.
Only 3 more sleeps until the girls start kindergarten. They are getting very excited. Poor Eva is not going to be that happy when they go - she gets very sad when they are not around and looks for them all the time. I have plans for our first morning, she is still happy to be in the pram so we are off for coffee.
We need to child proof the house again, everything was just getting back to normal now the girls are older, but Eva has been commando crawling to anything that looks vaguely interesting so my days are full of screams from the girls that Eva is touching their lego, house, cars, animals, dolls.....

Good recipe alert: the banana bread from the last Donna Hay Kids Special - the best banana bread I've ever made - no pictures as it's nearly all gone.

Lovely garden!

Mum and I are thinking of starting a vegie patch once the weather cools off.

What a cutie!
It's still winter here but I mailordered all my seeds last week. Can't wait for them to arrive. We're planning on loads of courgette (zucchini?) because my toddler LOVES it.

How wonderful for the girls to start kindergarten. I used to love it when Isabelle went to 4 yr old kinder. She made lots of friends and I used to help out there too which was lots of fun. I can imagine that Eva loves finding everything to play with and explore too. It will only last a year or two though.

I think my Zeb will be the same, missing the 2 older monkeys! Same with the commando crawling-I have been preparing them for this, but my daughter has yet to experience the destructive power of a little one to a fairy set-up! Alex is much more experienced and has moved huge Lego constructs to the front room. Interesting days ahead!

Love your garden. When I grow up I'm going to have a garden. Hope Eva doesn't miss the girls too much. It's hard when life changes!

WOW! Can't wait to see the pics in their school uniforms. I'm sure Eva will be lost. Does that mean you may get lots of sewing done through the day now?

Thanks for the recipe alert Kate. I have that issue of Donna Hay Kids (and all the others!!!) and am making the Banana Bread for afternoon tea today. Good Luck with the Banshees at Kindy today...you won't know yourself!!! xoxo
