Afternoon in the garden :)

Stunning day today at Chez Nicholas...
Yep, imagine all the dog crap under those leaves
 After sleeping in until lunchtime (due to late night at Kidspot Top 50 Bloggers launch - vote for meeee) got busy in the garden.
Mulching around the spuds (dog is talking to next door's dog)
 Harvesting the last of the basil, for pesto tonight
Princess Zuzu not overly-whelmed by it all
 And getting Bed 2, the legumes bed organised.

Presently  it contains Broad Beans.
  • Earthed up around the base of the broad beans
  • Put in stakes and strung bailing twine between them to support the beans if we get another southerly gale like we did last night (crap it was cold, and there was me prancing around Oxford street in cocktail garb)
  • Put in a row of golden podded peas to grow up the fence at the back
  • Tossed some dead palm fronds down in-between the rows
  • Sprinkled with wood ash from the fire

  • Mulched, watered and ticked off the list


3 people love me:

You are a champion! (I voted for ya!) What were the dogs talking about, or did they whisper so you wouldn't know?

Thanks Bec! Dogs were talking about other dog next door and the annoyingness of its yappiness. They would never yap in such a way because they are REAL dogs (ie pugs and a spaniel) goddamn pomeranians.

Sorry about the comments, but so far its working, its working...

We mowed the lawn for the first time this year over the weekend, you should have seen the dog crap. I think there may be some strays living in my backyard.
