This past week has been quiet at the Old Miners Cottage. The flowers continue to bloom and attract the bees.
We planted Bamboo near the water tank. It looks beautiful, just like Chris said it would.
The next door neighbours tree is attracting the local wildlife!
And finally, we put up a raised garden bed. We've filled it with pea-straw, compost from our own compost pile, and of course, sheep manure! (All very cheap and locally available to us.)
We plan on using this for carrots and parsnip this Autumn/Winter and maybe pumpkin next Spring. We'll see what happens when we get there! It should help green-up an otherwise dull area in the yard.
Otherwise, all is going fine. The corn has all decided to flower, although it is only about 1 metre (3 feet) high. Oh well, baby corn anyone? :)
Until next time. (Which I will attempt to be more often.)
