Frozen ground

In my school geography class I learned that frost was good for killing germs in the soil. Now, I don’t know if that is an issue in my garden but whether or not I will be able to do my planned digging on Monday is another matter.

Temperatures haven’t gone above freezing today, although the atmosphere on the walk home from the bus stop this evening was nonetheless a pleasure because of this.

There doesn’t seem to be any frost in the back garden but the soil is pretty soil right now. Still, if I can’t build a new hugel bed with the latest round of bokashi on schedule, at least it can be done another day.

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.
