...sang Joni Mitchell, and although this isn't exactly Woodstock (which her song is about), it still is a groundbreaking project for us - in literal terms! This last week (my first week of summer break, yay!) has been all about digging up and preparing the soil, sowing the seeds and in general making a good, practical and fertile vegetable patch for our family. So far we have put down seeds for spinach, different salad types, peas, carrots, cucumbers, leeks, turnips, courgettes, different herbs and beautiful flowers. Fingers crossed it will turn out better than last year, which was a disaster because the soil in that garden wasn't soil, but sand. I really don't want to talk about it, haha (still sore).
I'm lucky enough to have little helpers too, so how could it go wrong?
Ps: If you see here and here, you'll see that we have happy experiences with veg farming, too! :)
