Hello Forkers and evening

Been out in front garden today planting as much out as I could 12 plants in and leaves removed from ground ready to make more leaf compost for this year dug up soil in some parts and added homemade compost around the catalpa tree (indian bean tree) and where new plants went in the fern and mahonia and had 3 buckets of sieved soil with lots of stones mostly stones to put back onto garden around plants done garden gloves very dirty

got wet a few times as sunny some times and then sudden rain

Came in later clean up when finished noticed I had lots my earring in garden looked around a lot found earring great just lost the earring back, will be searching around garden for that in daylight, damn thing walked over most of garden area

extremely wet at mo 

Bilje - does happen that way you do something in the garden then find another to do or end up doing an extra thing not on the list

Good Evening FORKERS
