Hi! Joining the party.
I have a big project which is ongoing but slow and a current project which is moving fast. The big one is our acreage which is growing fruit trees and other things but my current project is my backyard in the 'burbs. I am putting weed mat on the bed that has been self seeding basil and tomatoes for a while because although I love weeds usually (edible, help to shade plants in the heat of subtropics here) it was so neglected, grass had crept in and it's just a mess.
So in an effort not to tamper with the beautiful soil ecology of that bed, I've cut the weeds back, not pulled them. I have my weed mat to smother the lot and will put on top of that a thin line of compost, chook poo, my new seedlings and then mulch like mad with lucern!
The back bed now has sorrel, gotu kola, capsicums, lettuce and silverbeet - and some self-sown melon or squash of some sort. I have seedlings ready for the weedy front bed of spinach, carrots, watermelon, shallots, radish, okra and goodness knows what, I just went crazy - all from organic heritage seed.
I broke my foot three days ago and although I tried to get in the garden, it was an epic fail. It feels better now so tomorrow I'm in there with the weed mat.
My other project is bag compost! I have a collection of kitchen scraps to put in a garbage bag with garden clippings and will sit it in the sun to rot down. Apparently in a few weeks it should stop stinking when I open it and it will be compost.
Out of frustration of not being in the garden, I am here instead to write about it.
