I know you’ve been pining for some before and afters. I KNOW you have!
Well, you have to watch the vid from yesterday to see B10 as I found it after 4 months of neglect. Here it is after about two hours yesterday:
Here it is after a few hours today:
We sowed (is that right? sowed? it seems wrong…oh well. so does seeded.) two kinds of beets, carrots, three kinds of lettuce and arugala today. I was also delighted to find my mint, thyme, lemon thyme and oregano all flourishing in spite of my neglect when I fought through the nettles surrounding them today. I was so delighted when I discovered them all waiting there that I greeted them out loud. Oh well, there was no one there to hear me but them.
This weekend will be more meticulous clean-up and I’ll also have a go in C10, which is equally overgrown. Thankfully, there seem to be fewer nettles in that plot. They’re bigger, sturdier weeds (babies of the veritable weed trees i was pulling when i first got these plots last year), but the ground is soft from the rain, which helps. So I’m jumping on them as quickly as I can before the sun bakes them any more.
If I tried to write about how pleased I am right now, I’d just write gibberish. But my heart feels lighter than it has in months.
