I think our household is missing a vital gene. In fact if I didn't know better I'd say we were foreigners. The great kiwi ability to DIY is definitely missing. But I do own a rusty hammer and an equally rusty saw. That was enough to knock together the required bed. I then barrowed compost from the bottom of the chicken coop up the slope. Lots and lots of barrow loads. I was sweating buckets by the time I'd finished cleaning the chicken coop and filling the new bed.
I was covered in mud as I finished but boy was I happy I'd finally achieved something in the garden. I collected the seeds to plant. Garlic up the back amongst the black currants (yes I know it late for garlic but I'm going to give it a go), sugarsnap and climbing peas, carrots and a few strawberry plants. Then the heavens opened at it started to hail. I ignored the weather and got those seeds in.
After I finished the lightning and thunder started. Then the rain, then the sun, then the rain, then the thunder and lightning, then the sun - actually I think you are getting the picture. Four seasons in one day.
