    Ha ha ha! After wearing my boots for the first time I found a ring around my legs, down on my calves. It took me a while to figure out it was the boots rubbing against my legs. Socks and pants tucked in. They are a little warm, perhaps that’s just how rubber boots are? In the end, I love them for muddy work, but socks are a must.

    I have those very same boots. My husband surprised me with them when he took a little trip to TSC. I concur: They are hot and sweaty and make the most disturbing noises if you wear them without socks. :/

    Good job on all the hard work in feeding your family healthy food not contaminated with chemicals! You deserve a medal. 😉

    I just love your blog! I have a few garden beds myself. I tried to follow some of the advice from your blog while I was planning my garden beds.

    I almost got some of the walls of water for my tomatoes but then I changed my mind and used plastic sheeting to go over the whole bed. I needed to cover some some peppers and eggplants too so I thought the plastic was more cost effective.

    Thanks for sharing Emily. Everything’s looking great, especially those boots xx.
    I have a path which I want to put a light arch or trellis over so it creates a privacy screen from neighbours but doesn’t reduce light for my fruit trees too much. I think I’ll try and find ‘cattle panel’ in Australia. I’m sure it will do the trick. Then I can grow Kiwi fruit or similar over the top. Not sure what ‘concrete stakes’ are, but hubby will work out some way to pin it down, I guess.
    Thanks again for the update

    Love looking at your garden. I have a square foot garden for the first time this year and it is growing like mad. I can’t keep up with eating all the delicious lettuce. Happy Gardening. Kathy
