Well it’s snowing again so I have not potted on my cucumbers or courgettes or gardeners delight
To day has been sunny so I deweeded the pots out the front of the house and I just need to hoe the moss that’s out the front on the pavement then I did a mammoth poo picking from the dogs as well.
The patch of Rhubarb has started to show leaves now and we have some flower seeds coming up in bed one and a runner bean coming up
In the oblong container on the right I have sown sweet Williams, Viola , Nicotiana all from seed so hopefully we will see some Well I managed to pot on both my courgettes yesterday
And I sowed 4 pots of herbs for the Kitchen coriander chives dill sweet basil and we see how things go we tided the shed come garage up as well so I can pot on and sow the seeds and things
Well it raining this morning, so it be computing and watching TV today, I think? Plus making bread today.
The daffodils are slowly showing their flowers will take photos when not raining
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
Well the house is as complete as can be now we tidied the garage/shed up, but I got to sort my side out a bit more, so I can start sowing seeds extra but hard when not a lot of light in there to start with.
Thinking of putting the roses in along this fence between our next-door neighbor going to sort his bush out as it is coming through to our garden
I will be sowing some grass seed or meadow mix
Once I found some slabs or brinks might work
