I'm still alive, that's a good start to any day, right? My sleep routine is way out of whack, but I haven't caved in, still on the quit smoking bandwagon... one thing that's keeping me going is the shiver it gives me to even consider having to go through this past couple of weeks all over again, not worth giving in just for that alone!
I've been getting compliments from random people about my potatoes - they're in the front yard, so every pizza and parcel delivery, every water and electric meter check, and every visitor and passer by that's tall enough to see over the front fence comments on them. Finally got my trellises up properly for my espalier tree garden out the back. My ugly capsicum looks more like a proper capsicum now.
so got one of my strawberry seeds in today they have going into freezer to prep them to germinate, just snapped a shot of the instruction paper and will post it in the fruit and vegetable growing area. so if others out there are looking to grow any from seed.
I used both my back and legs for this one. It was a large mop bucket filled to the brim, so I was trying to carry it without spilling. We sit it under our little portable airconditioner and forgot to empty it (We have to empty it at LEAST twice a day)

I now really have to pull my finger out and get my legacy garden bed jigsaw puzzles sorted out and finished before these new beds push the old ones into discontinued. Would be just my luck to need half a dozen more pieces or a few more braces to finish mine off and not be able to get them anymore.
what is you unit Mandy one of those free standing AC with the hot air vent out the window insert? That is what sister has so i set a condensate pump up for her drill a small hole in the shield the goes in window and ran the discharge hose up to it, i added a small anti siphon valve in line at the pump so it pumps up and when it stops it doesn't back flow into the tank again
Designed for automatic collection and removal of condensate from air conditioning, refrigeration and dehumidification equipment when gravity drainage is not possible or practical. Also suitable for high efficiency oil and gas-fired condensing furnace and condensing boiler equipment.Find the PUMP...
ok so in the back you have a hose that you can drain the water into a pail, the condensate removal pump has a reservoir the water from the AC drains into the pump plugs in and has a discharge hose barb you can put a pieces of hose on and then stick it out through a hole in the same shield that holds the hot air exhaust hose. no more buckets or pails to pick up and empty
