Garden log 04/02/14

Yeah it’s been a while. I haven’t had a whole heap of time for gardening and plus having a giant stomach makes it kinda awkward. A wonderful friend is coming over to help me catch up a bit tomorrow, but here’s how we stand for now.       Advertisements

Garden log 11/11/13

Well what with all the Montessori-ing I’ve been doing in the last couple of weeks, I neglected the garden a bit. But yesterday and today I got a little bit done. Oh, and don’t even talk to me about carrots. It’s a bitter subject.
