What’s been happen in the gardens this week



Well I have so many seeds veg, herbs and flowers that I got myself 2 slimline contains to put them all in and it been nice to start sowing again even though my garden is not ready yet.

Well we had a lovely morning yesterday we made my first small growing bed which I sowed enorma runner beans and Bedfordshire champion Onion seeds and some flower seeds at one end.

It was so nice to be out in the garden again without any slipper snow about will be planting some of my jacket spuds that have sprouted in the potato bag not sure were yet

The first bed was made from red bricks and made two layers of them some metal things to let the runner beans climb up

seeds we scattered around the garden are

cupids dart’ corn cockle, antirrhinum majus eastern star, morning glory, rudbeckia.

And in a sliver bucket a mixture of chilli’s and sweet peppers


Well I got my jacket spuds into the green tub with out a bottom in it planted 10 in all and some lettuce on top

In the wire thing I have sowed some sugar snap peas on the inside of it so we see how that goes.


The only job I did was hire my worm bin so I can get juice out all I do is slightly tip it forward to get the worm tea out

And I cleared some more of long grass area to give the dogs more room to run around in and make a natural hedge like for the wildlife to use during the whole year


I sowed two watermelon seeds called Sugar baby never had any luck with any squashes or melons so using my window sills indoors as have not found paving slaps  that I need before putting  the greenhouse up  which I need


Yesterday I sowed 2 kinds of cucumber one lemon and one marketmore 75 and 2 kinds of courgette one lemona and one Romanesco you might think it crazy when I have not got any more beds ready in the garden and have no more window sill space left to do anymore sowing indoors   so watch this space as they say


We cleared the rest of our garden found snowdrops  and things I think are rhubarb not sure and we have 11 tress in our garden but not sure what they are as yet  I scatter some sunflowers Pastiche down the bottom end of the garden planted a handle rose near the dovecote  as well


This morning I started to make sourdough bread and giving it’s first proving of 2 hours then I will re know it about and shape it in to a round or loaf  type thing  if David likes it might be making more bread at home even if its with ready made yeast



I started weeding the rhubarb bed yesterday needs a bit more doing to it will see part of me doing it in a video

So, apologies if I turned my back on your


We see our first bumble bee and 2 ladybirds this week

What’s been happen in the gardens this week

Well after I put my roses in the ground  the Landlord came with his digger and helped put up our dovecote and washing whirl y gig in the ground  all I need is some new pegs for it now and turned some of my growing area up for me so I need to mark out were I would like my raised beds to go and clear the garden up from the rubbish that’s in the garden


He will do the far end in a couple of weeks, so he said

I am going to work on the left-hand side and try and deweed as I go noticed some red berries this morning as walking the dogs up the garden along with another plant, I do not know

Will take photo’s


We put the swing seat in shed until the spring with all the gales we are having at present around here. Been raining again so have not managed to do any clearing up I want to start sowing but need to clear a space first in the shed to sow some seeds

Cleared the garden up again been raining the last couple of mornings so as the sun is out, we decided it also was the day to walk the dogs this afternoon as it meant to rain for the rest of the week, and we do not walk our dogs in the rain  if we can help it unpacked my knitting bags this lunch time


The snow has melted with all the rain, but it been forecast to snow again so the tv weather folk keep saying


So, no practical designing has been down outside as yet which is a shame, but Rome was not built in a day was it.


We did the bird watch over the weekend  witch was nice  will be nice when I got my camera’s up for recording  the birds as well


I am slowly planning my garden out I think by getting the compost site and possible the greenhouse in place and sorting out my water butts where they are going to go so, I can easily water my plants when I am growing them.


It’s been snowing again so apart from feeding the birds not a lot has been happening I am afraid  in the garden or shed


Today I am going to be sowing my first seeds of 2019

Saved seeds from a supermarket stir fry mix they long ones and I am going to soak them in black tea a tip I got from Tony O’Neill from UK here we grow  on Facebook



while we were outside we made a small planter out of guttering and in it we sowed basil, coriander, some pink flowers, and some broad beans Bunyard Exhibition only my last 5 I had  and in the pots around the back garden sprinkled other flower seeds


IT fills good to be outside again
