Tuesday 7th May 2013 – Another glorious day.

Well we’ve really been spoiled this bank holiday weekend. Saturday (10th Annual World Naked Gardening Day) started a little cloudy, but as the day went on the sun came out and stayed out. Monday was warm enough for a BBQ and to eat outside, and today reached 22.5 degrees according to the car. So this morning before I went to the allotment I had to apply some suncream. Also the white legs have come out as I’m wearing shorts. This mornings task was firstly to water the allotment. It’s all growing really well, the potatoes are coming through and the radish are popping up, as well as many other seeds. So I’m a happy bunny at the moment. I managed to finish digging another bed, and removed yet more stones. I do need to get in the greenhouse to pot up more bits and pieces, and the next few days are going to be a bit rainy, so it’ll be the perfect time to do that little job. I also found a rogue radish growing in a potato bed. I’m not sure how it got there, but I picked it and it tasted very crisp and hot. Just a taster of what is to come this summer.

    Hi Claire. Just love your blogs and you tube videos. I’m a very keen gardener and after living in Northampton for most of my life I moved, along with my family to co Kerry in Southern Ireland. I love living here as I have so much more land than in the uk. I have encouraged lots of locals to ‘take the plunge’ and grow their own. Trouble is lots if them have never grown anything before so I have been showing them. My problem is time and not enough of it…so I decided to start a blog gardenofyvonne@wordpress.com and I’ve done a couple of videos. I would love to have a chat with you about your experiences as I can see you have been doing your blog for a few years now. If you could spare some of your precious time to have a chat please would you send me a message with some contact details. Thank you. Kindest regards eve
