This is what happens to a garden when the owner is busy with other things. The red hot pokers flower, the weeds go crazy and the owner sighs.
This morning I vowed to water ALL the plants, even though I have two demos today and I have to prep for 3. The plants HAD o be done first.
The back yard was looked after first. Then I was watering the trees and wicking pots in the front with a bucket, using water from the water tank. On the second-to-last tree…
… right down near the ground. I’m so excited! I rarely buy cherries because they’re so darned expensive but this is proof positive that in years to come I’ll be merrily feasting on my own cherries. I feel bad because the garden is so neglected but I suppose that’s the beauty of fruit trees. They keep on giving.
Hong Kong: I thought I had 7 to go but then a sale that I thought was rock-solid now looks as if she may put it off till December. I don’t like counting my chickens until they’re hatched so I was back to 8.
Then Kathryn from NSW contacted me and she’s now awaiting delivery. (Thanks Kathryn!) That brought it back down to 7.
Last night I drove to Phillip Island and did a demo. Two people bought. (A mother and daughter. Very cool.) So now the target is 5.
I have 2 demos today. Wish me luck!
