    Have large vegetable garden which always need attention. Have three hothouses which grow vegetables etc and have small orchard with 25 + fruit trees and plenty of gardens to weed and modify.

    If you are talented at landscaping there are a couple of hundred blue stones to be laid as driveway edging and a couple of hundred smaller bluestone pavers for garden edging to be laid.

    Fencing can always do with some attention.

    Fire wood to cut and split, ferns to be dug out etc etc etc.

    Paint work also available, sheds need touch up and re paint.

    Happy for you to make yourself at home and even jump in the kitchen and surprise us with your culinary delights.
