It makes me smile to hear that someone that is 59 is loving their garden work still!

BUT I'm glad I didn't do this to the whole garden. The beds I lightly turned around have been a lot of work because of all the weeding but on the other had I've had many pleasant surpises. For example, a few Borages appeared on these beds without me having to sow them. Also the beds have a large seed bank of chamomile which is nice. Had I covered all the beds I would have lost these treasures.
