Temperatures in the mid to upper thirties – and what were Simon and I doing today? Building a garden – south facing of course so that we could get the benefit of the full sun.

The garden is on a steep slope, making the endeavour even more fun!

And truthfully, it was fun: there’s something terribly satisfying about seeing a blank patch of dirt, then the drawing, then a mass of plants, and then the finished product of plants in the ground. I only put in half a day but even after that, the area was transformed.

So, right after lunch ad\nd grocery shopping, what did I do? Got out in the garden of course. Water. In this heat, I can think of only one thing when I look at the garden: water, and lots of it.

I also seeded our new areas with chard, onions, beans, dill and radishes: fall crops and cover crops. The beans may just be bean sprouts but that’s good too. Food.

Our food forest is taking shape every day.

And now – dolmades.

No rest for the productive.
