We are mighty excited at the prospect of growing our own tomatoes - of which we bought two, a basil and some potted colour for the other end of the planter we picked up when we first arrived (it has cat grass living in the other end, of which both the cats LOVE). I tried having a tomato plant in Dunedin last year, but it was too cold without a glass house and the morning we left Dunedin, we ate the three piddly little tomatoes that were semi ripe and left 2 still unripened on the vine at David's dads house.
This weekend we added to our garden some lettuce, celery and herb seedlings, two more tomato plants and a lemon tree. I also wanted to buy a kumquat tree just because it was awesome, a pomegranate tree for the same reason, and a feijoa tree because YUM! But alas, being renters and having only a small courtyard means getting only what is useful and what can be grown in pots - photos to come soon.
David is mowing the lawn, it takes a really long time as I'm sure you can see...
Monty's favourite spot, especially when it's sunny, which is is most of the time.
Monty also got his first wasp sting, the poor little guy. It took us a while to find the sting in his paw (and he was NOT happy with us trying to find it) but we got it out, with just a little yelp from Monty before he was on his way like nothing had ever happened.
