It's a cucumber

Another lovely week has gone by in Chez Drummonds. The unknown self seeded plant turns out to be not a zucchini, but a cucumber. Am very happy about that, but am still transplanting more tomato plants which have also self seeded, shall be a spring of cooking tomato puree methinks. Might try drying a few too.

We have had a nice mix of a bit of rain and a bit of sunshine. Today we had a planting day down on the sanddunes, with a reasonable amount of locals turning up to help out. 1300 seedlings planted in less than 2 hours, a few sandwiches and drinks, and I still managed to go for a one hour run in the arvo. And scoff half a bottle of red wine and toast marshmallows over the fire.

The fitness regime has been notched up. With 5 weeks to go I'm in intensification stage. This is about increasing my aerobic fitness as well as doing some very ski specific exercises. I'm pretty sure the whole ski experience this year will be well within my comfort zone for the first time ever, but now I'm addicted to the endorphins I just can't stop. I know it won't be a struggle this year, but I can still see room for improvement.

Of course, it's got to snow first......
