I don't know whether it's me getting older, running around after three tots, or dealing with the Graves Disease (did I mention that I have this?) but I am getting really tired lately.
I know that it's not because I am vegetarian because my blood work (blood tests every month) shows that my iron levels are brilliant so I am going to pin the blame on the tots!
The Teen was a total love today. She babysat for me for the entire morning while I played in the garden. I have planted, weeded and spread sheep manure. I also managed to prune some of my 'nurse' trees so that more light and air can circulate now that summer has gone.
So what did I plant?
Climbing Spinach (This is for my growing challenge this week!)
Artichokes (Thank you Hardworking Hippy for the inspiration, you can never have enough artichokes!)
I also put a heap of sheep manure over the potato bed to prepare for planting on the weekend. Tot 1 helped me scatter some collard green seeds around the beds 'just to see what happens', and a dear friend gave me a bucket full of plants for the pond.
Now I think about it, perhaps it's just hard work that has made me feel ten years older than god.
