May in the garden- The garden series



I've been sewing like crazy this past month and have left my garden to the elements. The rain has been welcome but unfortunebtly the neighbours cat decided it was amusing to dig up my carrots so I'm at a loss about how to cat proof my garden. If the rain holds off I'm going to get the tribe out to weed, mulch and plant out more of the garden. It's looking good though. How's your garden going?

Adding scraps, egg shells, straw and paper/ shredded waste matter to the compost bin. 
Adding dried egg shells to the new plantings that are starting to come through the planted beds. 
Let's not talk about the worm farm {it needs a major overhaul.}

I'm joining the Garden Share Collective over at Lizze's the strayed table {http://www.strayedtable.com} and checking in monthly with what's happening in the garden.  Follow me over at bloglovin. What's growing on your garden at the moment?
