We HAD to get the jarrah sleepers made into raised garden beds today come rain hail or shine. Well, we got rain alright and this morning my resolve was cracking along with the storm. However, the gods intervened and the rain stopped, clouds disintegrated and we actually got sunshine. Fan-bloody-tastic! Better yet, a girlfriend dropped over unannounced and offered to babysit Henry. Even better! Down to one child we made some serious headway, even though it took longer than anticipated (as always) and the unexpected purchase of a chainsaw.
But the garden beds look brilliant! It’s all taking shape finally and I can now order my organic soil concentrate from the Green Life Soil Co. and get the beds finished ready for planting. I still haven’t received my seeds from Diggers yet but I have 11 varieties of herbs and veg already coming up in seed trays so I’m underway anyway. I’ve also got potatoes going in various different places too.
