How's life in your part of the world going?
We are having some gorgeous summery weather here, well into Autumn, so it is just lovely to get stuck into the garden and Do Stuff.
I am doing a lot better this year with my annual resolution to grow as many of our vegies as possible, and this great weather is coinciding with a bit of a rekindling of my gardening bug.
Usually I start the year well and we have lots of summer veg, and then I slowly fall off the wagon as other things take my interest, and only remember to plant things in fits and starts.
Not this year!
I am Mrs Consistent this year!!
Planting something new at least twice a week.
Yesterday I finished clearing a derelict part of our front garden, weeded and smashed up the
concrete-like soil, and added a mountain of stable manure to improve the soil structure.
Then I had some fun making teepees for my climbing things, I am planning a sweetpea teepee, a snowpea teepee, and a sugar pea teepee, so lots of peas! I also want to put in a lot more flowers for cutting this year. It makes me feel good to be able to pick posies from our own garden.
It really felt good to knock a few things off my list of Autumn things to do. Usually I write them all down and that's about as far as it goes. Not this year!
I am planning another day in the garden tomorrow, before this Indian Summer leaves us for good.
It is just great to be outside, my crochet has to take a back seat at the moment, I feel a bit guilty sitting inside when there is so much life flourishing just out the door!
Do you love the 'change' seasons ?
Hope you are making the most of the lovely days we are having if you are in Melbourne, otherwise, I hope you are having a sunny day wherever you are!
