This week in Sunny Strawbales:Paving – of course – getting there….the going is slow with so much cutting around the plinths – and it is very noisy and oh, so dusty work – so it is good to just take it steady!
Gardening – lots happening which is lovely – we set up three new raised beds. Valerie painted the waterproofing on them and I (mostly) filled them with our usual lasagne of rocky sand/rocks; then cardboard and paper; then straw; then mumby magic; then sifted sand and mumby mix; and finally more straw for mulch.I’ve decided our tractor sure could do with power steering – I was feeling my muscles the next days! But we do love our Bob (that is our tractor’s name).
The hard work is worth it – we have got this to show for our efforts: asparagus and tomatoes:
And three rows of potatoes – we will plant more next time it is below-ground planting days:
This here is our current, most exciting waiting:
Our boy loves his corn and these ones he planted are looking delicious!!
