Winter is here!


Winter is here well it is where i live we had our first frost last night -2 it was! brr. We had a heavy weekend my husband and i are trying to rescue our lawn so after mowing it and scarifying it we aerated it by hand with a normal garden fork. 50 square meters of lawn it felt like 500! my husband is not a gardener and wouldn’t know what the difference is between a weed and a flower or veg! So he only helps me in the garden when there is a fair amount of heavy work to do! Like digging! He said he would be happy if he never saw a fork again! Needless to say we both had really bad back ache sunday night! I’ve still got a few tidy up jobs to do in the garden. Jobs just don’t get done when they have to when you have 2 children at home not at school yet! Going away at the end of the week for a holiday and my tidy up jobs will have to wait until then!
