I took a break from trimming down my study papers. It was a bigger job than I had anticipated and one, which, requires inordinate determination from me to plod on and do it. I entertained myself to a bit of gardening while the weather was dry, not too windy, and not too chilly. I say ‘entertained‘, perhaps, what I should really admit to was giving myself a ‘healthy’ back ache.
My little herb garden was looking a bit denuded, except for loads of weeds, grasses, a sage that survived last winter, a pot abundant with mint, and a bit of lovage. The pottery strawberry planter which I used for edible flowers just stood in the middle of it all, looking a bit mouldy, sad and out of place. Oh well, the result of my oohs and ouches, is not bad. The little corner is now looking a bit more cared for.
This is representative of the harvest I had from my wee patch, a couple of years ago.
I had better put on my thinking cap and decide what to do with ground after my next surge of paper de-cluttering, when, I am likely to be wanting to distract myself and needing to dive outside again for a bit of fresh air. And just for good measure, I shall use a knee mat or something similar to make my life as a fairweather gardener a bit cushier and kinder to me.
