Mad dogs and Englishmen...

So that was me, this weekend - I slept in as many mornings as I could. Why? Because weekends are for resting. And then heading out in the hottest part of the day to first walk your bike up a big , steep hill, so as to reach the garden on the other side of said hill, and hoe and dig in the garden during the hottest possible part of the day.

I must be mad...

All this while keeping an eye out for sneaky wood ticks. Ick! Unfortunately, ticks seem to be the one negative point to my otherwise very nice community garden. *shudders* I do hate ticks, I really do.

Still, it was a good weekend in the garden. I hauled some rocks of the right size into the middle of two of the beds, so that I could stand in the middle of the raised bed and weed or thin any plantings easily within reach, without losing as much growing space as I'd lose if I'd put a plank down instead. Still have to get going on the top part of the fence - our anti-woodchuck measures.
