The paths and open areas are still a disaster but I will fix that next weekend. My lower back has had enough today and my hands feel like sandpaper.
I worked one bed at a time - weeded, then mulched. The asparagus bed got an extra treatment with a mix of homespun compost and horse manure.
I discovered kale and red spinach in this bed that self-seeded from last season.
I'm back inside in front of a fire. The cute thing though is that I had an audience today when I worked.
The cows who live over the fence came to look so I threw them the grass I pulled out. It feels good to reconnect with the earth to dig and nurture and grow.
