Hey there everyone, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.
I’ve had one of those weeks where I don’t remember what I did, it was quiet and homely.
On Monday my husband stayed home and the children helped him plant our new fruit trees. It went so well that they dug up the ones that we planted last year and put them into the new orchard.The orchard is now set up and will be planted as follows:
Apple / Accacia / Another fruit tree or nut tree.
The Accacia is a nitrogen producer so that puts into the soil what the fruit trees need. All the early producing trees are in one area, then the mid to late and then the late. This is all very exciting and there is enough room to plant 500 trees (not that we have near that many yet). My husband will be incorporating an apple library as well. He will be putting in root stock and grafting old varieties onto them. At the moment we really only have a few heritage trees all the rest being new varieties.
On the weekend we were able to pick up the next Lego construction pack and our no 2 son was so excited. This is a Bucket Wheel Excavator and has over 4000 pieces.He was allowed to start it and finished the dump truck very quickly. He’s amazing with his Lego but now he needs to wait for Dad, but he’s really busy work wise at the moment so hopefully they can get started soon.On Monday when they were doing the fruit trees I was able to plant some more seedlings into the nft system of the aquaponics. These seedlings are looking great and are standing up nicely now. I ran out of baskets so I’ll be ordering some more shortly because I have more seedlings. Our Pastor blessed us with some of his excess ones.
Below is one of the seedlings planted a few weeks back and the roots have grown amazingly.
We will be putting in some more nft’s very shortly and growing a lot more of our seedlings this way in the future.
I have been busy knitting and I am nearly finished our son-in-laws jumper and I want to give it to him this coming week, then I’m onto my next project. I have a bit (fair bit) of mending to do so that will need to fit into my agenda very shortly.
On Saturday my husband and our no 2 son went on their Fathers weekend and they went camping at a hall up in the Grampians. There were 4 other fathers and their children as well. Our no 2 daughter decided that she wanted to stay home and keep me company so we had a girls night in and ate chips and watched a couple of dvds. She’s already been on 2 camps so her dad didn’t think it would be an issue that she stayed home.
Okay, onto our link up…
Our top three posts this week were…

Thank everyone for taking the time to link up and I hoped you got a chance to look around at someone else’s post and blessed them with an encouraging comment. I really appreciate any comments I get and feel so blessed and encouraged by you all.
This coming week we have the Warrnambool Eisteddfod and our son-in-law, daughter and children will be coming with us. So that’s 2 exciting things at once.
That’s later in the week so we’ll be spending the first half of the week at home practicing and doing school. Then going to the Eisteddfod and also catching up with close friends for tea that night. It is becoming a Warrnambool Eisteddfod day tradition as we catch up each year.
Music lessons are on Friday this week so Saturday we get to sleep in and hopefully on Friday (with the help of our visiting family members) we will be butchering some ducks and roosters. So the following week I will be busy making chicken stock and canning it.
I’m also hoping that we can get to Bible Study this week as my husbands fathers course finished last week. My husband has heaps of work on at the moment so we’ll see how it goes.
What’s on your agenda this week???
Thank you all for your support and may God bless you all.
Keep on keeping on my friends…
Have a great week!!!
