And so the seed sowing begins! – Saturday 18th January 2020

Well this seasons seed sowing has begun. I had a lovely time in the garden, and greenhouses this afternoon, and got loads done. It’s now too dark to be outside (can’t see what Im doing), so I’m in here writing this especially for you, yes you……aren’t you lucky!

I’ve given both greenhouses a good tidy up and all the trays are in my staging units. Any old plants from last year that I’d not had chance to sort out at the end of last season have now been cleared, and I had a couple of boxes of bits and pieces that needed sorting out, and I managed to also do those.

So (no pun intended, sorry) the seeds that I’ve sown are as follows: The first of the vegetables: Onions “Exhibition”, Leeks “Musselburgh“. The it was onto a few herbs: Dill and Chives. And finally a few flowers: Sweet peas “Old Fashioned Cottage Mixed”, Lobelia “Crystal Palace”, and a few varieties of Aquilegia’s “Blue Star”, “William Guinness”, and “F1 Spring Magic Mixed“.

Well that’s a good start to a very busy year.

Happy gardening!

Dodging the showers!

It’s the end of November and there’s still quite a bit to do in the garden. However, you have to watch the weather to see when you can be outside and when you have to hide inside.

Now I’m a hardy gardener, but even I would rather be inside my greenhouses, when it’s pouring with rain than outside. There’s getting wet, and getting wet! I’m not willing to get wet, just for the sake of it and end up with a cold, no thank you.

So today was a day of dodging the showers, but I made it work, so that’s good.

I’m starting to propagate my sweet scented geraniums, sort out my new strawberry babies, and plant out my Autumn planting garlic.

Come and see how I got on…..

Harvesting this years potatoes

Life has been so busy lately, and when I have a day off, I do get loads done, but there’s just not enough hours in the day at the moment. The clocks have changed and now the sun sets about 4.30pm.

I have managed to get out in the garden, and harvest all my potatoes, which is one good thing. I can tick that off my “To Do” list.

Here’s how they did this year.
