Quiet day Today.

After being so busy in the garden preparing areas for crops and then either sowing seeds or transplanting out seedlings, it was nice to have a day off from the garden.

Pat and I went into the city to do a few things and do some window shopping.

While looking through the shops we called into Dymocks book store and I bought Jackie French's Soil Food. Very excited about this as I haven't got a book that solely talks about soil and how to feed and care for it. I have a few of Jackie French's books in my book collection for gardens. So I am looking forward to some quiet time read up on how I can improve my garden soil, even more than what it is now.

Birds are giving the green manure area a run for it's money. This area was lovely and level and those holes are from their scratching when hunting for seeds.

There is still a fair bit of green manure germinating and so I am hoping it'll be enough to improve the soil for a spring planting.

That Jackie French Book is one of my favourites. Just about have it on permanent loan from our library!!
Birds are being very pesky aren't they!

Birds are a pain in the bum. Hoping though there will be enough left over for a good crop.

Looking forward to reading the book. Rather read a good gardening gook or magazine now a days.:)
