We had a morning of sunshine and warm spring air on the weekend, just enough time to clear the sides of these stairs and begin the process of building up the rock walls either side.
The neighbours chooks love to visit, and love to scratch the dirt all over the stairs. A few hours after this shot, the steps were laden with soil again.
I do like them visiting though. Master S snapped a few great shots whilst he was home sick earlier this week. These are two of next-doors flock.
Potting began for market stock. Excuse the mess in the background, we have been emptying the downstairs room of moving stuff.
Miniature gardening counts as garden journal material doesn't it?
The old house is ready for sale, I cleaned it yesterday. As I left the house, the barren hydrangeas were calling for me to take some cuttings. I am also trying lavender cuttings for the first time.
Do you take cuttings? My Grandma has always grown roses from cuttings - I have yet to master this art. Daisies work very well.
I was blessed to take part in the very first meeting at 'the blessed school' for the school farm. I could not be more excited. They have an existing greenhouse igloo from the horticulture department that is no longer being used for the upper school. It is huge - we discussed fitting maybe 20 apple crates inside. The children will all be studying farming as a whole school - while devising market stalls, worm juice and egg produce. Exciting!!!
How has your garden been growing? Spread the word....
My friend in Tasmania was discussing her chooks eating her crops... just a little note to let you know thus far my stick fence is doing wonders keeping all animals out! Easy and cheap too!
