More work in the garden in July ~

The garden reno’s not progressing as much as I hope due to other less interesting but important commitments in life, I can only contribute a couple of hours a week on this project when the weather is good. Except for last weekend when I took a day off to move the 5 cubic metre DeCo I ordered, still some in the front though.

Two of the four veggie beds on the west side of the house are more accurately positioned parallel to the house, lined with black plastics on the inside, and… Continue

Lots of activity

I'll have to add photos later - for now I am only words
