Its at dusk that we can truly appreciate the hard work put in during the day. I for one look at the garden with a smile of achievement, rather than what else needs to be done.
And when we reach the polytunnel a slug or 2 have started to peek out so we can do a bit of house moving for them (ie throw them onto the ditch). But last night my partner suggested we leave one slug that we found incase our resident frog doesnt have enough to eat..... ahem..... I threw it across the ditch, informing her that the poor frog will have enough to eat ! hehe
In the mornings, like this morning, I do a 'walkabout' but its with a different feeling. Firstly the fear that the goats have broken in earlier and destroyed our hard work (thankfully not this morning) and secondly anxiety mixed with excitment about all the work that has to be done in the next few weeks.
The first thing I did spot this morning (with camera in hand) was the neighbours goats, they ran away from our ditch, then stopped to look back at me
I did bake a cake of brown bread though, so I dont feel soooo guilty for dossing online! yum, the smell is gorgeous.
