We put all the stuff out on the lawn while we erected the metal shelving.
Unfortunately our little sweetheart had some major health issues and had to be transported urgently by NETS to the NICU at Sydney Children's hospital and was there for two weeks before being transported back to Wollongong and now finally back home with his family.
He is now doing wonderful and although needing many follow up visits to specialists he is really good.We were really shocked at how quickly things can happen and how scary it can be.We are so very proud of how our daughter and son in law handled the situation.
While we held down the fort there hubby completed a few jobs and helped out where ever he could, he completed building a ping pong table that my son in law had started doing,
We went and picked up a new power inverter that we had ordered previously.
We had been concerned that the two big raised beds of potatoes we had planted may not produce anything as they had not flowered(we had always been of the understanding that flowers were needed to produce a crop),but after voicing my concerns on my face book canning page, many people assured me that it was not always true)
So today we decided to do a test dig of just two plants.
lot's of yummy beautiful spuds.We will leave the rest for a few weeks yet, as they haven't died off properly yet and they were still small potatoes forming on the roots of the plants.
Looks like we will get a wonderful crop when we finally dig them, this was 2 of about 50 plants.
It has been a crazy ,chaotic ,exhausting few weeks and this post only skimmed across a bit of it.
The only thing that is important is that our beautiful baby boy is going to be okay, everything else pales in comparison, he was certainly being looked after, and I can't give enough praise for all the hospitals that he was treated at, and the brilliant staff, they are just marvelous.
So until we meet again,
Life is precious,
Jane. :-) :-)
