The Missing Week
Thought I better get a new post done before people thought I had dropped off the face of the earth.
Its been a busy week and a very hot week
The asparagus bed was weeded we have finished picking it now time for it to rest and rejuvenate.
and mulched with the soiled bedding from the goats
had to make a batch of peanut butter as I ran out
with the last picking of asparagus I made up a quiche for when Louise came over for a visit,
the hot spell we had saw me seeking shade and doing things that were less taxing
like carding up alpaca fleece while listening to an audio book
and clearing this border early morning before the heat builds up
doing a little each day I have slowly made my way down half of it.
Still harvesting lots of goodies,
the pak choi is fantastic this year
I have been getting hanging baskets done
and window boxes,
I have always wanted to plant up some window boxes.
today we turned our attention to the orchard area, is was badly in need of a cut
I cut around the fruit trees with shears so Martin could work with the strimmer without snagging the trees accidentally
now it is under control again we can see the trees
the paddocks have all been topped as well.
the fruit cage is now all finished with a nice mat of wood chip and the paths around the veg beds
that just about sums up the week I didn't post, lots of jobs we are now on top of, it is making a big difference having Martin home more. I have also been getting some sewing done I will update my craft blog in a few days.
I hope you have all been enjoying the good weather 🌞🌞🌞
