Back in harness

I'm back! Blue-eyed and bushy tailed. The last few weeks have been full-on for sure. First off, I spent a couple of weeks digging footings and prepping the slab for my workshop, finishing up with a twelve cubic meter concrete pour. Turns out that that was just a bit to much for an old bloke who's way over weight. I blew a gasket and ended up with a 3 hour ambulance ride and a week checking out the hospitals and the ICU unit in Albury and Wodonga.

Anyway things are looking up again and I'm back in harness, but on light duties for a few weeks. Still we have a sewing room floor and the shed should be on site and under way in the next few weeks.

While I have been out of circulation the garden has managed wonderfully well by itself and is producing an abundance of fresh veg. The second lot of corn produced well and we got a few meals off that. We have beans by the truck load, capsicum and pumpkin on the vine. The rain that held things up on the shed worked wonders for the garden.

Broad-beans are leaping out of the ground and the mixed seeds I threw out on a bare patch have fired up. I have now got a heap of curly leaf spinach and beetroot seedlings ready to go. The spring onions are ready for thinning and lettuce will need the same in a week or so. Right now things are getting back to normal and it's all good out here in the long paddock.

It's good to be back Ducki, the kneesels are still a bit wonky and I'm only allowed to poke at stuff a bit for a few weeks but we are getting there.

Glad to hear that you are back in your feet jonesy. It no fun being injured. I have had back trouble my whole life (but have it figured out now thankfully) and it can really take the pleasure out of a building project.

Your slab looks like it is a good size. I have to say that there is nothing quite so good as a really big shed :-)

I have the kit for a shed and the slab in place just waiting for the house to be finished so that I can put the blasted thing up. I am really looking forward to getting that done and having the extra storage and work space.
