Thursday 2nd May 2013 – Tits and lettuce, a rather strange combination.

Well it’s all getting rather exciting in my nesting box as my, soon to be mummy bird, has been sitting on her nest all day. She pops out every now and then to stretch her wings and then is back on her nest within 2 minutes. She now is showing 8 eggs, which is so cool. I’m hoping that in the next few days they’ll start to hatch. I will let you know, so don’t worry about that. But down on the allotment this morning I had a great time. I put in the Oriental Stir fry plants. I’ve alternated them in the soil, so have the three varieties “Mizuna”, “Tatsoi” and “Giant Mustard” in a wonderful pattern. I’ve planted them about 3 inches apart, so they should form a lovely cover over the soil and look pretty. I’ve also managed to dig more of another bed, but the soil is starting to get hard now, as we’ve not had rain for a while. I’m not complaining, just saying.
