Got advantage of the weather since today we had very little rain.  Temperature only 14° C. Did the second cut on the grass. Replaced again the water tank. Finished the digging and preparing of the soil for seeding. Brought in all the seeds: Opium Poppy (Papaver somniferum), Yellow Marigold (Calendula officinalis), Blue Flux (Linum lewisii) and White Clover (Trifolium repens)

The potatoes we planted about two weeks ago are pushing through the soil. The Purple Tansy (Phacelia tanacetifolium) and Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) are already germinating.

Good and warm Weather. About 23° C. Organized tools and establish the structure for equipment. Cleaned the garden and collected and removed all the trash from the side. Did mowing the meadow after the grass grew to tall. Improved the soil and brought in to the bed some seeds: Purple Tansy (Phacelia tanacetifolium), Red Clover (Trifolium pratense), Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) and Nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus). Finished painting the tree stems and the pruning. Worked late into the evening since the weather is so nice.
