I have had a very industrious day today and spent most of this beautiful weather outside. I decided that it was about time I set to in the vegie garden. It is very dry at the moment due to neglect, as until now I haven't really been motivated to get started. I set to digging out the old plants and preparing new beds. I have started my compost heap and have been doing some research about this. I piled in lots of leaves, horse, chook and pigeon manure, scraps and dirt. I have watered it down as it still hasn't rained. I will take a picture when the garden is all ready to go. Growing vegies is new to me so I am still learning. We had some success last year with silver beet, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, zuccchini, apple cucumbers, tomatoes and strawberries. I am struggling to get the soil fertile enough, hence the compost. The water seems to disappear quickly so I will have to get myself some more mulch.
The picture below is one of my first sticheries and says, "May all your weeds be wildflowers."
This sunset was a lovely finish to the day.
Dinner was lamb stew with pumpkin dumplings served with toast. Due to the broken oven, I was unable to have dinner rolls.
