More Rain on my Parade

Hi Lovelies, Hope the day is finding you well. I can say that things are looking up a little here - but that's only because the internet connection is finally back and I can actually sit down and collect my thoughts. I went into this year being extremely thoughtful. By that, I mean, I planned.…

Field Preparation: Weed Barrier Fabric

Hi Lovelies, Hope everyone is doing quite well. I've tried to write this post a few times and I've managed to get myself distracted by a bunch of documentaries on Netflix. Now, I know I need to focus. Can I just mention, once again, how much I hate pulling weeds? Can you believe that some…
