A monthly diary of activities and progress in Susan’s Garden.
Photo heavy, text light, following a natural timeline.
The warming spring sun is beginning to work its magic. The roses are stretching, the tools ready and the seed trays are being introduced to the gentle light of lengthening days. The shadows are still long, but the work must begin.
There's a winter’s worth of ground cover to be cleared, reclaiming the fertile soil of the potager from its natural tendency to return home to mother nature.
The remains of winter linger: a last kick at the slow-cooked can as it were. So the last of the leeks and chard come out and the first of the summer crops are planted.
And there’s always a lemon to add a bit of zing…
March 20: the potatoes are in!
March 25: Feeding the roses
In Susan’s Garden, its all natural.
Compost is home-grown of course.
