Digging ourself deep

Literally. And figuratively speaking also :-)
Literally... the hole is done for the vegie cellar.
It's not very big but it will be big enough to house the harvest and -in case of a fire storm- to serve as a temporary shelter.
You have all seen and read about the fires in Victoria. Our thoughts and sympathy are with the affected communities!
Paul is digging the site for the septic system.

Figuratively... our bank was generous and we managed to dig ourself deeper into debt. But now I not only dream about but I actively research to buy espresso machines, commercial dishwashers etc.... which will grace my kitchen.
The berries are growing nicely.
Isabelle from France is helping with the leaf plucking. BIG help, thanks Isa! She's a country girl! She knows the difference between a potato and an apple tree! :-)) and we were hunting for special cheeses for special dishes.

Veggie cellar? Yumyumyumyum. Will that be to store the veggies loose or pickled?

Loose :-) And pickled if the pantry will be overflowing :-)
