Sometimes life sweeps you away with what you are doing and you barely notice the passing of time. That was how this June has been so far. A hive of activity with the days disappearing into a blur. I am not entirely sure how we have found ourselves one third of the way through this month. The weather was magnificent and the garden called to me. The work, while involved heavy lifting, was fun and easy.
Half of the garden has been put together and I’m happy with that. I have arranged my crop rotation and planting plan so the winter crops are on this side of the garden. Which means I can get on with filling the garden with earth and planting out my onion and garlic, all going well, on the shortest day.
The other half of the garden is still not level and the bulldozer needs to do more work. The problem is the large pile of earth is in the wrong place, but how was I to know that all those weeks ago when the garden was just a dream?! So I need to burst a foo foo valve moving as much as I can, into the new beds. Then the bulldozer can come back and level out the rest of the garden and bed building can recommence.
In the meantime I will most likely be out there – rain or shine, moving a mountain.
Come again soon – progress is being made.

Oh and… this week I am starting a new thing I’ve been thinking about doing for a while now, but have only just got around to. I’m voice recording my blog so you can listen along instead of reading it. You can check this out here:
