A gardening day
5 April 08
Today I spent all morning in the garden with the girls playing close by. Even Calista was outside on a rug for a while.
The first vegie garden bay has been part of the chook run for two months now, and so the chooks have scratched it over nicely, fertilising it as they grazed. I moved the gate off the front of the bay to the back and dug over the soil again. It’s dark and rich and should be perfect for a vegetable garden.
I have chosen and planted some vegies that we normally eat: zucchini, tomatoes, strawberries, spinach, chinese vegetables, eggplant and capsicum. My goal is to grow and eat vegetables from our garden for at least nine months of the year. (I thought I would give myself the hot summer months off — especially if we have watering restrictions!)
All my hard work this morning was rewarded with some gentle rain this afternoon. Thank you, God!
