Plot 55 update

If these photos look fuzzy, it's because they are! One night after dinner Dan suggested we head out to the garden and take the bale of straw we'd bought weeks before and put the plot to sleep for the winter. So, these are taken at dusk, hence the fuzziness. The girls worked really hard helping us - I was so impressed! Eliza planted the last of my birthday daffodil bulbs, I planted some garlic, and Dan and Anika carted over about 7 barrow loads of mulch to put on over the cardboard. I hope we're doing this right! We're enjoying it nonetheless! I was over at the garden today, helping build a new compost site, and doing other odd jobs with the folks who showed up. It was a beautiful, warm autumn day...
