After feasting and celebrating Fathers Day with my dad we busied ourselves in the yard while the sun was still warm and our bellies still full*.
We chopped slender bamboo stems from our back yard before forming them into a tee pee. With its frame stuck firmly in the ground we wove string and flexible bamboo around the structure. After channeling our inner Harriet Goodall, we had a trellis.
Next we shall have climbing beans.
It was fun to be together and achieve something useful, practical and hopefully lasting. As evening crept up, we watered the veggies, washed our hands and ate from the garden. Fo realz.
Makes us sound like we've got the prefect life right? Don't be fooled. We squabbled and the kids did more destruction than construction. But that's okay 'cus it was still bloody awesome and life is good when it's normal.
* of supermarket bacon. Ohh conviction, Where where you at breakfast time?
