Random Tweets from #decsplot my little patch of earth where I spend a lot if my free time digging, planting, weeding,sweating,aching,getting sunburnt,getting wet,being peaceful,proud,annoyed,frustrated but mostly really really happy!
Decsplot is about 60 ft by 30 ft (work out the mtrs yourself all you young wans) heavy clay soil which has had 5 years of digging,manuring and even two pigs on it for 7 months who did both digging and manuring for free, filled our bellies and the freezer! It has polytunnel that supplies tomatoes,herbs,grapes,strawberries,salads and shelter from the Irish weather. In the main plot I grow spuds,onions,garlic,carrots,kale,cabbage,turnips,peas,beans,parsnips……and other stuff. Jeez when you sit down and write all the produce you grow you realise how much work is involved.
At the end there is two poultry runs with houses. One is let grow wild all year until September when I get 10/12 bronze turkeys and fatten them for Christmas. My darling wife thinks the whole plot is wild but I’m convinced that to my highly trained eye it looks exactly like Monty Don’s Gardeners World plot!!! I doubt we will ever agree!!!. The other one has had all shapes and makes of ducks and hens over the years supplying eggs and some meat.
The buzz word at the moment in ‘Mindfulness’. Living in the moment and blocking out the past,meditating and generally aiding your mental health (this is my impression of it anyway) and #decsplot is my Mindfulness…….
