I've been procrastinating about the veggie garden for about 2 weeks. I knew I needed to get in there and clear it and do a lot of weeding, but just kept putting it off and putting it off. I'd built it up into this huge thing but as is often the case, when I actually get down to it, it's not huge and it's even rather enjoyable.
I did think I needed something nice to spur me on, though, and then I had it. My lovely mother-in-law, Penny ( I would say that even if she didn't read this!) gives the best presents, and I had a beautiful new pair of gardening gloves that she'd given me, hiding in a cupboard. I'd put them there so that I'd use my old ones up first and I pretty much have, so today was the day. ( ok, if I'm being totally honest, I haven't completely used up my old ones, but I really wanted to wear the new ones)
This is what they looked like four hours ago. Aren't they lovely? Aren't they clean?
Four hours, a huge amount of clearing and a lot of weeding, later. Slightly less clean, but looking great non the less.
And I must admit I feel really good for having done it.
Tomorrow I shall plant garlic.
