While the shredder is working overtime and I am still dealing with the burrs armed with work gloves and pruners, my garden seems to be getting bigger and bigger and the hedge ever longer and longer. I'm tired, I'm tired of the weird weather and I want a garden full of flowers and tasty vegetables. My hands hurt, my back feels broken and the rain that is already falling out of the sky when I finally want to sit on my terrace after a hard day's work, does not make my mood better. Still I have made a lot further and I can be proud of myself but let those sunny days come because I've had it a bit with snow and hail or ice cold rain.
So the branches and pruning waste pass through the chopper and the finely ground remains I use as a mulch layer around my plants. It keeps the moisture in the soil but also protects against night frosts. So handy with such a bipolar weather.
Still, I am also happy because my garden is becoming more and more a cute fairytale garden where little figures have come to live.
