Double marl


One of our citrus trees is a bush lemon so I originally planted it in native soil mix. Its leaves turned pale yellow, so I fed it chicken manure. That made no difference. Sunday I decided I needed to totally repot the tree with organic soil and I hope that will give it the nutrients it needs.

The new lot of beans in the fourth bed are poking up their second leaves.

I’m a little concerned that the two mango trees from our neighbours are shading over our vegetable beds too much in winter.

I think I have been coming down with the flu (again) and forgot to put in my organic order. I’m surprised how much we missed it, and how easy home delivery makes the grocery shopping when you have a busy weekend. (I’m in love with organic prunes!)

After we came back from living in England, Matt attempts to go the whole year without a jumper or a jacket. Unfortunately, this year has been unusually cold and he has had to pull out the gray woolen one that he bought before we first met. I don’t mind the jumper, but he teams it with marl tracksuit pants. Double marl is a worse fashion sin than double denim!
