Shadow Shot Sunday #131 STOP PRESS

Early morning Yanchep Lagoon news.
Abalone Fishing -
State regulations set bag limits and minimum size limits for abalone caught by recreational fishers.
I would also add - don't leave dangerous items laying around and take more care.
Better still, stop all fishing. See more at Sun City News

Another near drowning at the Lagoon this morning.
Two Abalone fishers were taken to hospital this morning.
On a happier note there are some very nice shadows over at Hey Harriet

Prickly lettuce!
I think it's called 'Oak Leaf Lettuce' - very tasty but it has prickles on it's backbone.

Plotting for a Food Garden week 57

No time for gardening today much to busy.
All the art was hung yesterday but I forgot to take photos! Dashing off now to put up signs, label art, grit my teeth (I have jaw ache already), take a deep breath & hope all is well.

Don't think these tomatoes will be any good - they came up next to the compost in among weeds & I keep forgetting to water them! We shall see.
Having to go back & make bread by hand today as the machine won't work. So the dough is in a bowl, in the car which is in the sun.

The Wednesday Wotsit

Today is my day for Family History at the library.
There is so much history in the web.
I was reading Thames Sacred River by Peter Ackroyd
about a disaster where over 600 people were drowned in 1878 I googled & found this amazing site
London Historians' Blog

I have also just found out from
The London Gazette January 11, 1881 that two of my Beck family were in a spot of bother!
