|When we first moved in January.|
Here in the far north its been a grey day with a sprinkling of rain here and there . Its still quite warm with a nice breeze blowing. We've been lucky enough to have a wwoofer staying with us, who is from France and he has been doing a great job helping me get the garden organized.
|The front garden now with one of the "mounds" at the far end! We had heaps of cardboard boxes left over from moving so I'm using them as weed mat. Now I need sugar cane mulch and compost to put on top.|
He has moved rocks and dug up lawn, trimmed some of the canes, which are surprisingly messy, and helped out hugely where I either didn't have the time, strength or just couldn't reach!
So now our garden looks a bit different. we have two mounds of waist sitting on the lawns which I am going to allow to break down and then add some compost and soil and plant more plants there. As most of my regular readers might know I'm not a big fan of lawn and would much rather have plants and trees.
|Back in December|
|Its coming together now I will take some close ups of the plants when they are a bit settled and something to look at!|
While we have been here we 've also made a few changes round the place and found a few treasures too. I managed to pick up a BBQ for a song and get it delivered and we now have a lemon tree, and a black Sapote. Still no chooks but all in good time!
Before Christmas I was honoured to be asked to contribute to a couple of publications put out by Earth Garden Publications. The first was for their publication on backyard chooks called "Even More Chook Wisdom"
Its well worth a visit!
And just up the road we have the mountains and rainforest!
