Screaming Thighs and Organic Matter!!!!

Doing a 30 day squat challenge. My thighs are on fire. Enough said!

Onto organic matter. The boring bit about how grateful I am for the abundance of water we have. How tired my hands and knees are from pulling weeds.  I have decided to try putting straw down between the plants to see if that helps any. The bonus is that beautiful organic matter should break down after a good till or two in the fall and again in the spring. I hope it helps. I am a quarter of the way done. it is a slow process. The garden is huge!(60+ tomatoes 60+ peppers and the list just keeps on going!) I am pulling each and every bloody weed out before I put down the straw. I manage about 2 hours or two rows a day because of the heat.
Off to make some relaxing meditation jars with my nieces and nephews....

You should squat while you weed -- multi-task!

That's back breaking work with sore knees added in.
I worked on a farm in Southern Israel hard hard work in the fields but they also grew flowers & cutting them for market was my favourite job x

How wonderful it is to pick your own organic fruits and vegetables :) Yum..~

That's a lot of veggies! I do envy the salads and other good stuff you will have though. :) I'd make salsa here, but they don't have the right peppers. So sad...

Look at that big lovely garden! I am in the process of turning compost piles here and across the street, and am putting almost finished compost out for mulch.
