Dare I say we've received just the right amount of rain, the right amount of sun and the right amount of warmth for one of the best gardening seasons ever? I'm almost a little fearful that if I say it out loud - it might all change in the blink of an eye. Our season started early and fortunately over the last week it has cooled a bit. Perfect for weeding, grass cutting and general chores.
Just wanted to show you an update of my front garden veggie garden. I started it by putting down newspaper on top of the lawn, cutting out a good edge (I love my edges), and then dumping compost on top. Over the past few weeks, I've re-edged once and am pretty slavish about clipping to maintain the shape. Considering it's a brand new garden, I'm really pleased. Kevin & and I have had salad almost every lunch and dinner and the taste is amazing. So much better than clam-shell-packed produce.
Because everything is on show, where I might have used covers to protect from insects, I'm just let the bugs share and watching carefully in case they start to take more than they should.
