Finally, a lot of the leaves are starting to drop in my garden. Lou and I have been doing a little bit of raking up of the leaves.
wheel barrow that is falling apart, ...
.... and off he goes!
I started making a second veggie patch a few months ago. I dug up the soil and sieved it to get out the rocks and this pesty bulb of a weed which takes over the veggie patch. It is just as annoying as onion weed but not as hard to get rid of. It has a purple flower and big clover like leaves. I wanted to grow carrots and onions in this spot. A few days later we had all this rain that washed all of my hard work away. The boys did have a great time in the muddy swamp that mummy made! So lately it's been a little boys quarry for the last 2 months.
I got my partner to do the digging to turn the leaves in to the soil. He does it so much better
and a huge rock!
I got excited. It would make a lovely garden feature - keep digging, let's see if you can dig it out. In the end it was bed rock so my partner buried it. We just have to be mindful of what we plant there because it does come into the veggie patch a bit.
Well, for the last few weeks I've been fighting off a cold and now it has finally beaten me. I have been in bed with night sweats, aching bones and this really bad headache. I couldn't even do any knitting in bed - Aaarrrhhhh! I am so close to finishing my cardigan. I was also too tired today to make it down the mountain for this month's Knitting Guild meeting. :(
