It’s been a couple of weeks now since a super exciting event happened in the Digging the Earth world…an appearance on national radio! Who can believe that?! Just an ordinary Monday, on which I’d scheduled in some non work appointments, a hair cut and coffee with a friend, turned into a whirlwind of excitement when…
We are not particularly big fans of either method of dig or no dig and are pretty open minded to both still, continuing to experiment as we go along, this gives us somewhat of a patchwork plot, some covered with a layer of organic matter for the winter, some parts covered with plastic and membrane and others simply winter dug over. I quite like the variety.
So spring is finally here and after so much snow, it couldn’t be more welcome.
It’s that age old thing that you have time for whatever you make time for, it’s all about priorities, what’s important to one family is less important to another. I suppose the same goes for other pursuits such as exercise or going to the gym. There’s not an infinite amount of free time available so you choose where to spend what you do have.
Each year, before I start ordering I like to take a look through all of the seeds that I already have. Invariably I end up with a few stashes here there and everywhere. My first job is to gather them all up and bring them home from the allotment.
