Just in time

It feels both timely and wonderful to be moving into summer again. Shirley has been working her green fingers to the bone on my behalf and the garden is almost ready to be planted. All it needs now is 1.5 cubic metres of Living Earth organic compost/bark/seaweed mix to top up the raised garden beds. And that arrives this coming weekend. Next week the transformation begins. I'm itching to get a newly-bought assortment of organic Koanga Gardens heirloom vegetable seedlings into the ground. During winter months, my horticultural inclinations hibernate. But they have now well and truly re-awakened. Just in time.
