Autumn

September 27th, 2015 by

I’m sorry that I haven’t updated my blog in a loong time. There has been so much to do in the garden during summer and there is still a lot to do before winter. I also work almost full time and have a very stressful job that drains my energy quite a lot. I hope that soon I will have time and energy to make some more designs.

The weather this summer has mostly been cold and rainy, so all my planned work in the garden has been affected by this. One of the plans was to build a bigger place for the strawberries. It took the whole summer to finish this. I started in the end of June and it took two month to finish it, or almost finish it. I will continue next summer putting small concrete tiles around the big blocks to make it easier when moving the lawn.

It was heartbreaking to dig up the plants when they were in full bloom.

Here I am preparing for the big concrete blocksĀ that will make the edge.

Now the edge is on place. It was a hard job to lift them in the right position as they are quite heavy. Now I have to fill with it up with lots of new soil.

I used almost all the compost I had in the backyard.

Now it’s almost ready for planting. I will use a ground cloth on the soil and make holes for each plant. Then I will cower the cloth with bark.

This is how it looks like today. Quite bigger than before and I hope it will give us a big harvest each summer from now on.

 

 

Today I tried to clean up and organize my paper and cardstock storage. What a tremendous amount of cardstock I have! I will never have time to use it all up! Furthermore, I can’t just skip buying more, when I see a great offer! šŸ™‚
