I’m itching

Firstly, from many mosquito bites – we had another bad evening yesterday with zillions of mozzies attacking and we ran out of mosquito spray – I need to get that fever tree oil to try out. They were even sitting on Fred’s nose!  Does anyone know what I can put on him?

Secondly, I am itching to start growing my own food.  I thought that I would wait till the property transfer goes through before starting the veggie beds but it is going to take too long.  I have decided to start some at least – even if I have to use pots.  So this weekend I will get myself some compost and plant some juicy tomatoes and some lettuce.  I would also like to get some cucumbers growing but must first check to see if they grow in autumn in the sub-tropics.
