Gardening with Hayfever, a Toddler and Dave

I need to finally get started on some jobs outside.

This week I really want to get my herb garden tidied up and re-stocked with the herbs that didn't make it through the winter, all the flower beds weeded so I can get them planted up and most of all I want to reinstate Nunnery Farm's vegetable garden. This is only a small plot and is not really in a sunny spot but its the only one I have at the moment. I am really keen to get this done so I can grow my own veg to go with my own meat. I realise it is late in the year to be starting this but I am going to crack on with it anyway and see what I can manage to grow.

So today I took my hayfever tablets, took a deep breath knowing who my assistants were, got out the tool and got stuck in! I started to weed the flower beds and got quite a lot done surprisingly. I hope to do at least a couple of hours a day until the jobs are done - rain or shine!

Today was sunny - I hope I am as enthusiastic if its cold and wet tomorrow!

My son took the opportunity to move all my gardening tools every time I put them down, Meg was rabbiting in her own motionless style on the walls.

And Dave eat my plants!

I love your stone walls. So attractive.

If you get too cold tomorrow just think of me ~melting~ here in Oklahoma...it was 85 degrees F at 5:30 this morning and the wind was hot ~ like hair-dryer air. Blech!
