Hi! We had a lovely productive day in the garden. Made some real progress (although I might be feeling a bit creaky tonight!)
I started by tying back the tomatoes while Jeff got to work on the crazy weeds in the pathways.
Next was the long overdue tidying up of the garlic! Happily the recent rain made pulling up most of the weeds not too difficult.
I scraped a bit around some of the bulbs. A lot are forming up nicely.
I had a fair bit of clearing to do in the corn patch to see what corn had survived, since hardly any had come up before we left.
Not too bad really. I decided to move some of the ones from up the top into gaps further down in the garden. Previous experience has shown me that popping in seeds into gaps hasn’t really worked.
That left me with a whole clear area to replant three more rows of corn seeds
Still daylight – so the zucchinis got a tidy up too –
From yesterday to today:
There are a number of little self seeded parsley plants and a couple of tomatoes – all to be moved in good time.
Still daylight – so onto the pumpkin patch… this was yesterday:
This was today:
I think Murgatroid missed me – he stayed by the fence and let me pat his nose without trying to headbutt me! Plus I fed him fresh grass! (and sang him Baa Baa Black Sheep)
It was 8.30pm by then so time to pack the gear away, put the chooks to bed, get inside and scrub off the dirt.
I do like before and afters though…
Quite the improvement!
Hope your day was great too!
