Great weather for outdoor chores

So, today I weeded out my potted veggie/herb plants. Fed all of them, including the lime tree, fig tree, lillipilly and rosemary shrubs. I trimmed some branches of the fig tree, so it will grow upward, rather than out.

Weeded out all the gumtree seedlings sprouting in my potted lime tree. Then I noticed that the ants have set up aphids all over the blossoms/new fruit as if it was a frigging supermarket. Break out the organic bug spray and gloves. Much squishing where I could, spraying where I would end up tearing the blossoms off. After all the weeding, trimming, spraying, they all got a good watering (extra plant food for my rosemary, as it seems a bit scraggly)

Got a second wrist splint because the one I’ve been steadily using needs to be washed, and it takes a day or two for it to dry. I really don’t want to have any setbacks on the improvement of carpal tunnel. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find another one exactly like it. This one fits differently. It’s taking some getting used to. Feels awkward, but I’m sure I’ll get accustomed to it in due time.
