Brassica, beet and spinach bed – the spinach is not going great guns, no idea why its struggling so much.

Courgettes and broccoli are still coming through – although the last 2 nights frosts might have done in the courgettes!

Below is the back garden which is in its winter/mid project/earth moving/weed mat needed/alterations slowly being made state. The middle back bed is up as we are suffering  from encroaching roots from the big tree behind it. Weed mat goes in this weekend and then lots and lots of manure on top, plus some pea straw and that will be left to mulch off till late winter. The bed not the right of that will have the same treatment. The 2 far left beds have been manured and topped with the soil from the dug out bed. You can just see the courgette plants out of the left and right beds. The long skinny bed on the right didn’t do well as a bean bed this year so will be a potato bed next summer. The bed with the brassicas will continue through winter and the be deep mulched and manured in late winter. The front left bed with all the new soil in will be the pepper bed.

We are also hoping to put up wind breaks on both front beds to protect those crops when the nor’wester comes through (its strong and very dry so really damages the crop)

Some flowers around the place, not many left but I love the fact some push on even in the cold and frosts. Sadly the nasturtiums were knocked out by the frosts this week so will be tidied up.

My extremely delayed post on Mother’s Day. A wonderful day. Spent outside and in the sunshine. With friends. Revelling in the little people who made us mama’s.

Oh gosh, a whole week and no posts. Oops.

Im breaking the no words rule this week to slightly explain the unassuming picture. It was evening mist, flowing across the fields onto the road (and into our garden) It happens pretty often – particularly in early evening after a warm day as the temperature drops (rapidly). Its  beautiful but refuses my attempts to capture it on camera. This was as good as I could get.

There is a girl in that picture, look close. In her element. Mothers day adventures.
