The Good Life?
My brother had shifted a tonne of topsoil the day before in order to fill the two beds he made me. I've been digging in compost to help improve the soil further.
Despite the balmy weather there is still a frost risk, so some tender seeds and plants can't go out yet. So far I've stuck to veggies that can tolerate a bit of cold.
At the moment the biggest risk though, is the local pigeon population. They already visit my bird feeding station to decimate the food put out for the prettier birds.
It may be hard work, but it's satisfying work. Messing about in the garden certainly is: "The Good Life" to me.
