Sentimental Rox is going to begin blogging our other most favorite past time and that is the garden.
It is something I eat from and feel so close to like "they" the plants are all my friends.
I am an avid believer in growing what you need and use on a regular basis. For instance it would be madness for me grow something I don't eat or cook. I try to stick firstly to the staples of onions, potatoes, beans, spinach, parsley, thyme, carrots and following that the list is endless and it is hard to stop.
The garden is a major source of enjoyment and fulfillment to my partner and myself. Each day there is something to do and tend. I go and greet the garden each morning with so much joy. I am more than sure they know that I am there everyday. Everything has and is growing wonderfully.
|Strawberries in Coke planters on the fence|
The strawberries who I call Good charlotte berries are prolific. I have now made purpose built strawberry planters from halves of coca cola plastic bottles and attached them to the fence with zip ties that are removable. This way they are able to cascade down with their beautiful nutritious fruit ... they love it there!
The main focus of the day today is the compost heap. We have decided to re position it as it went where it was by default. The rest of the vegetable garden has a new home so now the compost will as well.
