Today our activity spent getting closer to nature was being in our garden.
When purchased our house, there was a section of garden 90 by 13 ft covered in bramble, bindweed, nettles and other various things. Under the canopy of leaves was glass, broken cans, rubbish etc. So to make it safe for the children, I had to resort to a step I don’t like to take – chemical weed killer: kill the garden, clear the garden, make garden safe… Then care for the garden is the plan.
Well, the garden is all but dead. So the day was spent raking “dead stuff” clearing rubbish and saving bugs.
