This morning I planted seeds in the veggie garden: lambs lettuce, radishes, Chinese cabbage, and paak tsoi. Then I helped John plant more trees.
While getting mulch today, I got in with some Mexican fire ants. I don't know how Mexican fire ants got to Clohesy (Kunandra), Australia.

Karen broke her fast today. She had a cup of fresh squeezed orange juice in her room. She was instructed to sip it very slowly with a spoon. To drink it quickly can cause you to go unconscious. It's important to break the fast properly. She took the advice seriously and took 1-1/2 hours to drink her cup of juice.
John and I went to Mareeba to take his generator in for servicing. It needs something done to the valves. I wasn't really paying attention. We will have to go back tomorrow to pick it up. John went to another hardware store and bought a water hose and some fittings. His next project is to fix up a system to water his new avocado orchard.
I looked at the seeds while he was shopping and noticed three kinds of watermelon seeds. Since John doesn't buy watermelon, I asked him if he has a place where I can plant some watermelons. He thought a bit and then said he knew a good place. Tomorrow I plan to buy watermelon seeds.
I went to Lifeline (second-hand store) and found two pair of shorts and two sleeveless shirts for $14.00 total. I am trying to avoid a farmer's tan.
Consultations were late...3:30. I got on line for the first time in a few days.
Supper was lettuces, tomato, avocado, sauerkraut, pecans and dates. Karen had fresh squeezed orange juice. I got on the computer again after supper until dark, about 6:30. Then I read.
