State of greens #29

It’s been a while. After our piggies decided to have a little rampage in the garden we got pretty demotivated. At least it was nearly the end of the summer season, but it meant cleaning up a whole lot of stuff and redoing our garden beds when otherwise we would have only to amend them and move on to our winter crops. Our neighbour helped with a little tractor to create a few more rows for us so we ended up expanding our garden area and fencing it with windbreak.

On completely different news: Ever since we’ve been on this property (which isn’t ours) we wanted to plant an orchard. Because even when it’s not yours – there should be an orchard. Especially when you think about the fact that you can establish an orchard for the price of a weeks rent …

It wasn’t the right time then because we came only in October – but it is now. So here’s the trees that we put into the ground which we hope will thrive rather than wilt and die. It’s fun to keep a record as well, as I see my neighbours trying to tell us which tree is what and ending up forgetting and not being able to read the sun bleached labels on their trees.

Got something to say?
