|There is about 20 tomato plants growing in this bed - most of them are freebies I've transplanted near trellises.|
|There has been no much rain that i have noticed some powdery mildew creeping in on my zucchinis. Today i made up a mix of 1 part cows milk and 10 parts water and gave them a light spray. I love zucchini flowers (on the plant, not on my plate)|
|Cordyline - I love this colour when the sun shines through the leaves. Notice something missing - the chook house which use to be behind this plant. :(|
|Wide Arse Seat - now you know why i bought it. Its very sturdy and unlike the flimsy sets mostly sold out of the box and assembled. Not bad for $199. It will last for many years.|
|How come they can grow paddocks of this stuff (broccoli) just outside town and i have so much trouble in my back yard. It keeps going to seed before the heads form?|
Oh, back to the concerts. Remember that clever husband of mine, well he goes through periods of interest and for a few years many moons ago it was all about audio. The result of which is a media room with digital projector and a very large screen with AAA Hi Def surround sound. Many of the speakers (centre channel & sub-woofer) he made from the components put into homemade wooden boxes. Some of them are over 20 years old and sound perfect today as they did then. Gosh you can save some money in this area when you know what you are doing. Did you know that the difference between a cheap brand and an over the top audiophile level piece of stereo equipment worth thousands could be just a few electronic components upgraded on the circuit boards or to replace the cone on a tweeter or sub or to add some filling to absorb the vibration in the box - all of which are worth only few dollars. The result is sound so pure you can hear fingers coming off the guitar strings yet with an action film the sub frequencies so deep and loud that the glasses rattle in the cupboards in the kitchen. Thank goodness this room has insulation in the walls.
So what was last nights choice?
