What to do on the day after hiking? Well, make your already rather large garden even bigger. After all, I don’t have enough weeding to do. May as well do more.
The irises that have somehow survived years, if not decades of neglect, will soon be moved into a new place where they won’t have to complete for root room (not much anyway) and where they are going to thrive like never before.
Honestly: I moved 5 bucketfulls of roots (comfrey!) out of the new bed. Now all I have to do is move the plants and get some more straw to put down on another new path.
So thrilled with how everything is doing. Oh yes – we are going to have the first strawberries of the season for breakfast tomorrow! Yes! From our garden!
Very soon, everything we eat will be from the garden!
It’s a wonderful antidote to politics – I get mildly annoyed (or a lot annoyed) and all I have to do is go into the garden and get to work and – peace.
