Today I decided to start dieting....yep....got to lose some weight. I decided to go on the diabetic diet as I've found that works very well for me and I eat healthy. Also, I find with this that I have lots of energy. I figure what it comes down to is cutting out a lot of the carbs. So difficult this time of year because of people visiting. One tends to eat and drink too much, however, I'm going to give it a go. I also figured I would start walking for an hour every second day but guilt over getting one of the beds cleared of weeds and the soil amended so it would be ready to plant seedlings took over. The bed is about 20 ft. long going across the top of a rock wall and I'm afraid I haven't been giving it the attention it needed. So, with shovel in hand and a line of chickens behind me I started in. Took me most of the morning but should only take a few more hours to get it ready for planting.
After lunch I decided to get the camera and have a walk around. I started teasel from seed last year and this year it's doing me proud. Didn't realize they would grow so big though, neither did I know that it will grab your clothing and pull you back if you brush up against it, lol. The Bees and Butterflies love it.
