a day in the life

It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday, and I spent most of it turning soil into new garden beds. I used the double dig method described by John Jeavons, then sowed them with Mustard seed, and a row of Pea and Broad Bean seedlings.

I thought I had done enough, but when I went down to the beach for a cool refreshing swim I discovered 5 dead Penguins (probably the result of the storm on the weekend), and had to dig over another patch, which became the Penguin bed.

Today I transfered some of the Lettuce, Brocolli and Red Cabbage seedlings from the soil cubes, into pots. Very satisfying.

What a gift to be able to live in such a place that puts on displays like this at the end of a day.
