I found some muscles I didn't know I had by digging up some ground for new vegie garden beds. We have black soil here and as Darling Downers know, this stuff is hard to get going. It holds moisture and nutrients very well, but its a bugger to dig up. Anyway, the bed is there, with some decomposed cow manure, gypsum, chook litter which was put through the mulcher all added in. The bed will most likely be for brassicas so a bit of extra leaf won't hurt.
So, I'm glad today is like it is, because I don't think I could go out there again and dig some more - still have at least one more bed to do this run.
The weather is like this...
|Looking west there is mizzle - mist and drizzle|
You can't see beyond the 2nd contour in our paddock.
|Looking north towards the dam - the beginnings of the greenhouse and the vegie garden beyond|
The dogs have not moved more than a couple of feet today and the chooks are not enjoying much free ranging. This one definitely didn't want to be in the rain. A bit of comfort on the carpet if you don't mind.
I'm supposed to be doing a sewing job for some friends but I seem to be procrastinating about it. My procrastination has taken the form of this...
There's also a slice cooling, waiting to be iced along with the cake.
Grudgingly signing off to go sew.
