Bedraggled be gone!

The other day the pepper plants looked like they might still be functioning. Today they looked like this:

So, to the compost bin they went. I’m happy about this as it means I can now move on. Or rather the garden can be readied for next year’s food. Namely, there is a space for some more broadbeans.

The beans which are already through are doing extremely well so far, going on the fresh green shoots poking through the ground. The borage and nasturtiums have also been holding up well, as has the lettuce. So, we’ll no doubt be having some salad this weekend.

I have one kale leaf to add to this mix. Kitty has not lost interest in the garden since the compost bin was moved on Monday. S/he has therefore been knocking plants about in pursuit of the elusive mouse. 

I think the cat must have been quite puzzled after the compost move, as I can see paw prints all over the spot where it used to be. I hope that means the mouse is safe in the wood pile.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
