At last I was able to potter about, not fast, but slow and steady is fine. I’m still not good with uneven ground, I don’t care, I got stuff done! Gammy Knee is mumbling to me now but I’m not listening, there’s more to be done tomorrow. I have plans, green ones.
Walk with me…
Now not everything in my garden is perfect, I have been laid up for a year. Today was a fabulous feeling walking normally and looking at the garden with a sense of strength, knowing that I will be increasingly able to put things to rights and continue to build my food garden and my dye garden and herbs and be able to care for it all again.
No more sights like this:This is a curry bush, tomorrow I will put it in the herb garden. The herb garden is neat and tidy again, but I forgot to photograph it. Out on my deck where I have been able to look after things a bit I have tomatoes…
On the subject of tragedies the area of ‘three sisters’ planting that the cows got into has recovered more or less,
The beans are flowering at last, and there will be corn, kamo kamo and pumpkins.
There are potatoes (I know because I had a feel) and we are eating lettuce…
That area doesn’t look big, but it was six barrow loads and I still had to top it up with another three of grass clippings.
Leafy greens (Chenopodiaceae) like silverbeet (Chard) and spinach and lettuce go to seed in early summer, but we are past the longest day now, so I can plant more. Last years have seeded freely.
The herbs are flowering too.
A self seeded celery, I will transplant it tomorrow.
Babies have grown too.
I had a great day. I hope yours is too.
