Monday (Bank Holiday)
Well we visited David’s parents and did a bit of shopping
And come hope and after coffee come lunch I will start some of my potting on but might do it in the garden as it too hot for me to do it in the greenhouse.
I potted on some sweet peas that I had in the kitchen
Opened the lids on my composts 6 in all and one wormery waiting to get started when I can get a starter kit as my worms are hiding at present.
I painted Vitax tree grease to my fruit trees this afternoon
Well we had a good downpour last night and it slowly helping fill up my water butt as well filled a can up to water all the things in the greenhouse will be going in to pot on some melons and some flowers larkspur I think.
Having a coffee first,
Just potted on 5 melon and 11 larkspurs so far and 2 Greek oregano then came in for lunch which was a cheese and pickle roll and a bacon packet of crisps and a cappuccino made by David.
