A winning combination in the garden

Just writing this in Taurus waning moon.
We have just gone into Gemini Sun Sign and the New Moon will be arriving on Wednesday
I have been creating new pages with the videos on that we have made ~ cringe ;-(
Yes this is a very basic website and we are doing it on a very low budget
because we are on a low budget 😉
It is great to look back on where we were last year…
and where we are now …
with the poly tunnel starting to take form inside
and become the womb space of lots of little seedlings
This blog currently doesn’t have a large capacity for media storage so I am currently posting pics on my Facebook page.
I will create a new page for this blog in a few days time when we get into the perfect Gemini Waxing Moon to do that.
I am learning to go with these creation cycles more and more.
Today I have been looking around the area we have planted and see that our furry friends ~ the rabbits ~ are checking out our planting arrangements to see if there is anything they can share in.
They have been digging up the potato beds and getting rather cheeky ~ they come right up to our gate now and they are huge ~ bigger than our cats.
So maybe we can set some cameras up to see what they get up to when we aren’t there and see just who we are sharing the space with ?
We have had a couple of casualties recently ;-(
Forgot my Blue Peter training and didn’t create a bridge in the new pond aka The Bathtub in a former life.
Sadly a mouse left it’s earthly existence a few days ago in the pond ( have now created a bridge)
and today our cat Basil ~ who is becoming a skilled “hunter” caught a mouse today and had ended it’s life before I could rescue it.
Luckily I was in time to rescue the Great Diving Beetle though from our water butt ~ need to put some mesh on the top
We have seen some rare visitors today ~ the Finches
The clay of the foundation is problematic at the moment as we are having very hot weather and then storms.
We are having to balance finishing off the outer structure and creating the inner one
and finding time to sow new seeds at the appropriate moon time
and maintain what we already have
and of course live our life too 🙂
Like everyone else I guess
There are lots of things to learn
Scorpio brings water and all around the perimeter we have water
It is seeping in and when it stays for a few days it can easily go stagnant and create a place that attracts mosquitos
This can also reveal emotions that are seeking moving along in the cycle
We have added water to soften the clay when it is hot, so we can add a layer of sand around the plastic.
When the heat bakes the sand it makes for a razor sharp edge that cuts when the wind blows the plastic.
The sand softens the boundaries
When it is dry we can firm up the channels and add some drainage materials
and we are now working our way around the edges building raised beds that will also insulate
Lots of potatoes going in 🙂
This is a perfect time ~ Taurus Waning Moon ~ to be putting in Yin based root veggies as the energy is going down into the earth taking the roots with it
We have lots of different varieties in different parts of the garden
What’s growing ?
Having accumulated lots of seeds from last years garden harvest and seed swaps,
friends and garden centres both locally and online
we had lots of choice and are still planting away
Beans are big ~ lots of varieties because I have rediscovered beans 🙂
Pick and quickly boil to remove the skin and wow
This pic is from The Real Seed Company where I bought them
Peas, Fruit trees ~ Apple, Damson, Fig, Mango from a stone , Vine ~ rampaging away in the 30 degree heat, Olives
Tomatoes , Courgettes, Aubergines, Beetroot, Spinach, salad leaves, Kale, Gerkins
Lots of flowers and herbs too ~ Angelica, Anise, Coriander, Calendula, Nasturtiums
Squash ~ especially for our cat Arnold who eats this every day now mixed with Slippery Elm Bark to assist his digestion
and colon 🙂
I have made a note of when we planted the seeds ~ which Moon and what Wavespell to be aware of the energy that is creating with the seed
As we are in the last day of the flowering castle ~ Yellow Cosmic Star ~ Lamat which is also known as a rabbit ~ we can see the shift
It takes time to establish new ways of living and sometimes it seems that nothing much is happening
and then suddenly everything starts to do it’s own thing and
Eden is evident
All of these seeds started for me as a very small child
and as an adult in Greece with my lovely tomato picking gloves in 1986 🙂
