The garden is fighting every day to keep alive. The plants look dead by evening, I water them and they look better by the morning. By evening they're nearly dead again. I'm very much looking forward to the end of summer! Planting has slowed down - there's a few new beetroot under shade-cloth, but even they're having a difficult time of it.
We did get a marrow to eat, though! It tastes like a mild squash. We tried it steamed with a little margarine, and it was nice. There is another on the bush, and I will have to try and keep some seeds for planting next year, as these are rare - and I used all the seeds this season!
On a fun note, Marty organised last weekend for us to go away to Port Fairy for my Birthday! The weather is much cooler by the water - as you can see from the pic!

I've uploaded some of the better pictures to that album, so if you're interested in what we got up to, feel free to take a look. Otherwise, I will update soon with some kind of progress on the Old Miners Cottage. :)
Until next time!
