… actual garden beds are watered and covered with pea straw to protect any micro-organisms that remain. This garden bed (below) produced carrots all winter and the remaining plant is the single dill plant that grew from the packet of carrot seeds (from Diggers.)
The ground is dry. Cracks are up to an inch wide. Clay soils do this spectacularly….
I have recently moved a lime tree that was looking very sad. Since arriving at the new spot, it has sprouted a new shoot…..
Inside, I am sorting and sifting seeds collected from an assortment of plants… ready for next year. The dill plant has produced plenty of seeds, and having discovered how much nicer fresh dill is when compared to the dried variety, I will be planting quite a bit next year.
My bookshelf is housing some of the seeds….
Many are already packed up and stored in the cool of the bottom shelf of the above bookshelf….
… a whole new opportunity waiting for next year.
