Ordering seeds
Finished off the veg seed order.


NOTES
1) I've included some work from the beginning of the new year in my work book. Even though I was on holiday from Christmas Eve I still looked after the sheep and greenhouses every day and filled the log baskets when needed so in all I worked over 10 hours during my holidays which seems a bit stupid when its all added up.



COMMENTS FROM THE POTTING SHED
The Weaver of Grass Thanks for your New Year wishes, I will be happy if all my seeds grow even just a little bit.

salina Little seems the same anymore, I think people just forgot how to be nice and have a good time without spending loads of money.

Sara You're right there, he knows exactly what to do to get what he wants and he knows just whats going down which I'm sure your dogs do most of the time, they haven't lived with humans all these years without learning a thing or two.

Lois I don't think its so unhealthy to have blogging friends, I just see it as another way to have friends that you wouldn't have otherwise. Its not like you have blogging friends instead of other friends. In some neighbourhoods people just aren't friendly or at least they aren't the sort of people suit your personality. Its a bit like that here which is why we travelled 50 miles to the party we attended, they're our kind of people.

Jim I'm not really sure why as I've never really made a special effort training him not to take things that don't belong him but he just doesn't do it. Even if one of the other dogs leaves its food it will sit there on the floor all day and Tom won't touch it unless someone says he can have it.

Red Clover Happy New Year to you too. I don't know if you can see from the picture but the red stars on my mum's hat light up.

Great photo of Tippy doing his job!

Being a gardener does not sound too glamorous in the winter time - lots of breaking ice and checking heaters.

I love how all my seed and flower catalogs have been pouring into my mailbox the past few days! Sounds like you already did some ordering.

Gday Bob, "Happy New year"
Nice Photo of Tippy minding the lambs.
OHHH Boy its B-Cold there BBBBBBBRRRR I hope you had waterproof gloves Breaking and removing that ice.
All those pansies will look lovely when in flower. Are they going in the planters at the front house?

Sara Tippy is a girl actually Sara. I have made out my order for veg seed, I like to get stuff ordered in plenty of time.

Jeanette Happy New Year to you too. I took a picture of the water trough for you this morning just in case you needed a quick dip to cool you off! The plants are for a trough in front of the house but not the two by the front door, I already have them planted. Ha ha - we had the air con running all day here too Jeanette!!
