If you build it, Plants will come
A few weeks back I asked Ralph (Caveman) for a garden fence. The fence idea was originally to keep critters out, but evolved to keep littles out too. Gummy Bear can’t help himself in that fresh dirt!
This is a hard post for me
I believe strongly in the power of hard work, so I push myself, usually to the limit. But it’s no longer just about me. I can work myself to the bone, push my body farther than I should and I’m usually ok with that. I mean yes, it does wear me thin. Yes, it does get exhausting and I do have break downs. I’m not super human or anything. But the problem comes when the list of things to do is longer than I can handle at a comfortable pace, so I push.
Since the end of March and practically all of April I was locked out of my blog in a seemingly endless password battle, I’m just going to lump April’s garden update in here with May. Be prepared for lots of pictures.
I think with all the brush we’ve been clearing, and all the yard clippings, the best thing to do is build a hugelkultur mound. I’ve never built one, never mind grown in one, so this will be interesting.
New house, new garden
Well, we moved and bought a house. Yay! That also means we have to start fresh with the garden. All the hard work I put into my perennial herbs, and berry patches, left behind. But it’s ok.
