Even though I’m making daily progress with my Chinese, I haven’t been able to keep up with the challenge. (I’m up to Lesson 338 today) But I think I have a really good excuse. We have been making this new garden to grow green leafy vegetables … for green smoothies. And it’s been a lot of hard work. We’ve had to bring in loads of manure and even loam. These patches of dirt will grow the quickest green leafy veg. And seeing as it’s well into autumn here and things are slowing down, we need to give them every chance to grow well.
