Nice weather again after rainy days over the weekend.  Sunny, around 25°C. Again the soil is moist and perfect to weed. We have sown some more Blue Flux (Linum lewisii) in to the bed since the growing looks quite week. We also did the weekly mowing of the lawn. Today we managed to weed about fifteen tree pit surfaces out of sixty. So there is more to do! Since we want to improve the herb variety of our meadow we also have to maintain it by controlling obnoxious plants like Broad-leaved dock (Rumex obtusifolius). With the spate we dug them out and made sure the roots will dry out in the sun so they not growing again. Three of us worked all morning and in the afternoon we were two. We just did maintenance all day! The garden looks good, special after such a successful working day.
