Gardening

by crew - 13:11 on 04 November 2012

This month we finally got rid of a huge mound of builders rubbish that had completely overgrown right in the middle of the garden and prevented us from planning what we would do with the far side of the garden.  The digger that was booked finally arrived last Saturday and, with the resultant activity of 3 people, the mound was removed, the topsoil spread, the veggie patch dug over and a new drainage ditch dug for the rain water run-off from the road. Our visits to the Santa de Serra market are now filled with plant buying as well as bread and vegetable purchases. 

We were really grateful that the drainage ditch had been dug as during this past week the rain has been torrential and constant.  Our garden pond filled up and for the past 4 days has overflowed into the Levada.  We have had a couple of days out in the rain clearing the drainage ditches at the roadside of leaves and debris to allow a free flow.  There has been no damage here but we have read of landslides on roads in various parts of the Island.
