Frost on the garlic - just right for forming bulbs
Our DS will be home for a visit in acouple of weeks, I am sooo looking forward to it! So inspired by joyfulhomemaker, DD and I have been doing some interior designing ourselves. (It's going to be a surprise, so can't give too much away just yet). I was wanting to purchase acouple of bright scatter cushions to go with the new bedspread, no worries I'll just buy some............. that was until I saw the price tag ................ on second thought, I'll make some instead (perhaps they could be my Christmas finish for July???) This project has had our undivided attention for the better part of a week with just the finishing touches to go.
Time to catch up on the things we didn't do and the first thing that comes to mind is the herb garden. It was dug over again and has been sitting (resting) since. To my astonishment the mint has not yet surrendered its hold!!!
We have started feeding off the winter oats to the milking goats and sheep as the frost has browned off the other pasture and in readiness for the lambing season which should begin any day now.
It is now warmer outside than it is inside, so I'm off to thaw out in the garden :)
