The past few weeks I have been doing what I should have done this Fall... building up the garden beds. I am regretting not doing it sooner as weeds are everywhere and it is taking so much longer. I was just done last Fall after the circle garden project. It took forever!! We did somewhat reclaim the circle garden so I think it was worth it. Still wish I had found the energy to get the beds together.
To be honest, though, my energy the past few years to do anything extra just hasn't been there. Even before the pandemic work was a struggle. I had one of the most hectic and tiring summer programs I had ever had so while I gardened there just wasn't much left to build up beds. I also didn't blog much or do many podcasts. Then there was 2020 and work was even busier - still is. I think I am in a better headspace and as things here are improving for the time being I am hoping to share the garden adventures again.
I think it is important to share not just the pretty pictures and the garden harvest, but also the not so pretty work that goes into everything. I have done blog posts and a podcast on lasagna gardening so I won't go in full detail but here is what mid project looks like:
