Sometimes It Just Falls In Place

Not all the time, but sometimes you get that perfect day when everything falls in place, today was one of those rare days.
The sun was shining no breeze, washing got done and was out on the line first thing, every one was fed watered milked let out,
 bread was on the go.
 Flash enjoyed breakfast in the sunshine
 Young plants are brought out for hardening off, taken back in the poly tunnel after the evening feed round
 
The tomatoes were planted into border of the poly tunnel
 I am using rope to tie them into this year, I am also using soaker hose for watering.
 The squashes, cucumbers and peppers were all potted up
The last of the potatoes got planted
 With help from Tess I got some more wood chips down in the fruit cage
The asparagus is up

 The strawberries in the poly tunnel are in flower a couple of weeks and we should be picking some
Joy of joys the sweetcorn that was sown in situ in the poly tunnel are now starting to pop up
 
The day wound to a close with watering the poly tunnels, everyone was fed watered and put in for the night, young plants were brought back in again, log baskets were filled, then it was time for a sit down, satisfied with the thought that everything is as it should be, it was a good day. πŸ˜€
Why cant everyday run so smoothly ❓

  2. A good day. Put your feet up and have a well earned rest.
    Your bread looks amazing. Mine always looks a bit 'messy' if I bake it in a tin.
    I hope tomorrow is just as perfect for you. X

  4. No mention of evening meal here - did you really have enough energy left at the end of all that work to cook food?

    1. The beds are bottomless on soil, the boards are just to keep the soil in place

  9. It's always nice to have a good day, with all the hard work you have put into your ranch, you should have more days like today.
