If I do find the energy again, I will post photos of my progess. In the meantime words will have to suffice.
I completed the box with cedar and filled it with mixed soil. Then I planted a real combination of things ... at the back the climbers ... zucchinii, cucumbers and pole beans. In front, bush beans, both green and yellow, and sugar snap peas.Then I planted the rest of the nasturtiums in the tree trunks, took a great big breath, and considered how to start the rock gardens of herbs.
When I had my courage up I began ... and five hours later had 8 different herbs planted in and around the big rock area.
Then I went in for a swim ... well I started to ... I waded up to my knees and splashed icy cold water all over myself. I don't know how Kenya stands it ... probably the same way she and Sadie stay cool while Remi has to come in from the sun. They have thick insulating coats.
I discovered that I have to shade the basil and the lettuce from the strongest sun ... used my mosquito pullover today but have to find a better way. Some kind of movable screen I think.
It is an experience ... I have told you already that I am not a gardener, right?
