So, what thrilling, action-packed, mile-a-minute, exciting adventure did I have in my garden today? I sifted ashes. Yep. That's right. I sifted ashes. A couple of months ago, I built a huge bon-fire to get rid of some old (smaller) structures, rotten lumber, etc., so I had a lovely pile of wood ashes. Which can be really good for the garden. Except, these ashes were full of the nails and other hardware from the stuff I burned. So today I sifted the ashes. Now I can spread them and dig them, along with some other organic amendments, into my exquisite red clay to make a nice bed for my vegetables.
And if you were hoping to see something pretty on my blog today, I won't disappoint you. This rose is blooming right next to my vegetable garden. I don't know the name of it, as it was given to me by a neighbor, who also didn't know its name, but it grows very well and I enjoy it. I hope you will, too.
Have a beautiful day!
