It's a windy day
It's very windy out today and I don't like it. I'm scared of wind. I'm sure the fear comes from an event in my childhood when the wind blew me over (or so my mum says). I don't remember. All the same, I don't like it and gardens don't like it either. It dries things out, knocks them over and doesn't seem to do any good at all. A gentle breeze on the other hand is always welcome.
It hasn't kept me from my jobs though. They have to get done regardless. The washing did dry in record time so I guess that is a positive.
I've been sprucing up the orchard. Mowing around the trees, giving them a good deep water, a little bit of manure and then mulching. All the while I wish I was a better fruit grower.
