Plotting for a food garden.
Week 2. I was out in the garden bright & early (well early for me!) on Wednesday to fill up & start to seed my ‘magic square’ garden. Sad to say it only lasted about 20 minutes before I was surrounded by a cloud of midges or sand flies that started to BITE. I had put some repellent on as well as covering up but I still got bitten & now I have big itchy lumps. Today I put so much repellent on I could hardly breathe. I just had to get these seeds in, ‘they’ forecast rain. Two hours later, all done, I put the last seeds in as a light rain fell. Covered the plot with a few branches to keep Ebony out.
Along the way I found a few worms, a large winged cockroach & lots of other creepy-crawlies including a redback spider. Go here to find out more.
