Ordinarily, today would have been the first day of spring but in view of the nip in the air, I’m not bothered it was still February. It gave me an extra day to get my nephew’s birthday card in the post, apart from anything else.
Whether or not we are really on the cusp of a new season, today’s frost gave me a renewed opportunity to reflect on the challenges posed by the location of my mini forest garden, which is developing at a very slow pace.
I got sidetracked into cleaning windows, so no gardening got done. I did, however, inspect the said ‘forest’ to work out what I need to move and start to plan when. And considering it is the time of year when I empty the freezer in order to defrost it, I also ate lots of homemade ice cream.
Anyway, I’m hoping that Friday will prove a fruitful day for putting the plan into action. It might even rain….. Hard to believe that only two months after the floods, there are cracks in my soil. So, we’re back to being told that it will rain and then nothing happens.
