Sunday evening - I'm so content because I'm ready at last. Yesterday we had a marvellous day with sunshine and quite warm weather for the season.
At the moment I’m reading a very interesting book about the No-Work garden a Swedish book by Ingrid Olausson and it is based on a meeting and interview with a most fascinating lady Ruth Stout the author of No-Work Garden Book, it is an old book from 1971, I got a Xerox copied copy from my dear neighbour ‘Nuttan’ this is her nickname she is not at all nutty as a matter of fact she is a really smart lady. A lot in the book is about mulching and for that we need hay, straw and leaves and that I still had plenty of in my garden. Well…boots on and out to gather all that absolutely free mulching material…one and a half day later I’m done. Hard work for a No-Work garden ;-)
The kitchen garden is now tucked in, ready for the winter.
