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

        Finally, a few pictures from various angles, so you can admire the overgrownness of the grasses around it and the general ramshackle nature of it all. There’s order in there, I promise.

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.

With a mix of crappy weather, getting the boys’ room sorted, spending time with Sir A at Montessori, and general other busyness (oh yeah, also the week of school holiday), I had been a bit slack in the garden lately.

You thought I’d given up on blogging, didn’t ya? Well, I couldn’t really be that bothered but also I’ve been growing a person, which takes a bit of effort. Plus it was winter. Who does stuff in winter? But I’ve decided it’s now spring. Earlier in the week I cleaned up a couple of the … Continue reading

As usual it’s been a while since I’ve said anything about the garden. Actually about anything. Oh well. We had a beautiful day here on Friday last week. Lord B was home sick, but not super sick – more crash-around-lunchtime-and-be-super-whingy-for-the-rest-of-the-day kind of sick. Sadly takes after his mother. I decided we all needed to make … Continue reading
