I’ll use my old wheelbarrow.
Our morning walk sort of got destroyed by the castles tractors, I don’t think they even try to dampen the sound from the exhaust pipes. They come here to feed the cattle and I’m glad I don’t live close to where they drive around. Still the sound from them almost drowned the sounds in the forest and it was totally impossible to even hear the sound wall from the cranes down at the lake. The Black Grouse roosters gave up too and I wonder if it can be legal driving around with such noisy machines, especially since the entire village now is a bird protection area and will continue to be so till the end of this month.
It will be slightly more cloudy today but slightly warmer instead and the real warm weather will start from tomorrow, even nights will get warm. I’m not surprised it happens just when we start to work after the weekend again 🙂 🙂 Yes I know I shouldn’t complain, some of You still have nasty cold weather and some of You already have heat waves and draught. But still 🙂
I had planned on going to town today but I think I might skip that, I don’t have the energy to be honest 🙂 I can get those things I want tomorrow at the grocery store in the village where I work. Instead I think I’ll continue to work some in my garden. I started to make my vegetable patch bigger yesterday. I thought I worked quite much but realised that I hadn’t 🙂 It’s hardly noticeable to see that it got any bigger to be honest 🙂 🙂 🙂
I usually toss away the turf I dig up at the left corner in my garden, there’s actually a tiny hill there now 🙂 I was once thinking of growing something there once but the stinging nettles thrive there because I also toss dog poop there that I then cover with those turfs I toss away. So yesterday I thought I could use those turfs better and brought out my old wheelbarrow. It is rusty and has big holes near the bottom and the tire has had no air in it for years. So I covered it on the inside with two layers of ground cloth, filled it with turf and then put two layers with ground cloth over it all.
The rain that falls will be able to sink down into the barrow but the grass will have a tough time growing up through the cloth. I will later on make tiny holes in the cloth and plant something there. Squash perhaps? or pumpkin? I’m not sure yet and I’ll have plenty of time to decide since the last night with frost usually comes at the first week in June.Hopefully the worms that followed the turfs will do their best to decompose those turfs at the bottom of it all and hopefully the grass at the top will have a way to big job to grow through the double layer of ground cloth.
I’ll continue to make the vegetable patch bigger so I was thinking of doing the same today but with big pots, the ones I usually have tomatoes growing in. I have plenty of pots so I can just keep filling them and use the other pots for flowers if I want to or perhaps a potato or two 🙂 We’ll all know if this was a good idea or not when autumn arrives 🙂 I just hope I have enough ground cloth left, after all I’ll only need to put that on top of the pots since they only have the small hole in the bottom and that I can cover with a shard of any broken teacup I already have 🙂
The temperature has just passed 0C (32F) and is on its way upwards. I’ll make myself a cup of coffee and a hard bread sandwich and then I’ll start to work. To be honest, I don’t see it as work and I won’t get any problems with aching joints since I do it in my own pace and take lots of breaks for tea, coffee or cocoa 🙂
Have a nice last day of Easter!
