Slowly but steadily, our garden starts to look like an autumn garden…probably due to the high temperatures during the last months which caused everything to flower and grow incredibly fast. Vegetables are being harvested, beds are being cleared, the strawberries are almost all relocated after growing on the same spot for more than four years in a row and I am still trying to do a little gardening here and there although I almost always regret it in the evening – the bump is getting to big now.
Also, I am a bit frustrated this weekend because last weekend the best husband cleared one of our composts and decided to fill the beds with the newly composted soil, professionally ignoring my objection that I have solely put flowering weeds in there during the year. The result? Hundreds of newly growing thistles, millet and grass on my newly weeded beds…. Almost unbelievable that this action was done by the same guy who tried to burn down our neighbours garden in order to avoid the spreading of the flowering weeds.
But instead of more weeding I decided on another plan for this evening: to fill the cleared strawberry bed with water and create a mud pool for the little one as she seems to love mud right now. Followed by a bathtub session….
