May was a busy month! In addition to finishing up reports for Farm to Cafeteria Canada and working for the New Brunswick Food Security Action Network, well… life happened! Getting out into the garden is where I find the most peace. It’s where I re-energize. I can spend 5 hours straight lifting heavy boulders, turning over heavy wheel barrows of dirt, and coming home covered from head to toe in dirt or water from the rain, and well… I couldn’t feel better. I hope you all enjoy the progress pictures. I’ve loved every second I’ve had out there.
My amazing friend Morgan!
I decided a nice path was in order. Fist step was to dig out a path… …then lay down some of this matting which helps to prevent weed growth in between the rocks.
My friend Courtenay and I dug up these rocks last year from the construction site behind my house. After hours of climbing MOUNTAINS of dirt, and carrying heavy as all hell rocks, scratching up our legs and arms, and sweating to the point of hallucination and many laughs, we had gathered enough. I wasn’t sure where I would use them but one year later they definitely have come handy.
Had the Inspector come by the site today…
Et voilà! More to come!
