To be honest, I’ll celebrate anything with a glass of wine, however small the achievement. I’ve not got a drinking problem just incase you’re wondering! But this afternoon I was very pleased with what I managed to accomplish. Firstly in the greenhouse I managed the following: I potted up another load of Chives, which I put small clumps in 3 inch pots. I did 15 pots, so that’s lots of Chives to fill in the gaps in the herb bed. We do use lots of them, so I’m sure I’ll find a use for them all. If my sister wants some, then I’ll pass some on to her. I then potted on my Sorrel “Red Veined”. This is wonderful, if you’ve never grown it before do give it a go. It makes scrambled eggs very colourful and add the small leaves to salad to give it an extra oomph! I put 4 small plants in each 3 inch pot, and have ended up with 8 pots. Sorrel is a perennial and therefore comes back every year. Its a lovely addition to a herb patch. I then potted up my Sweet Peppers “Romano Mixed”. Strangely only 2 germinated. Why this was I don’t know, but hopefully they’ll mature to wonderful plants and give us loads of peppers to eat. Then finally in the greenhouse it was the time of the Electric Daisies. I think these are so much fun, and are great to try on unsuspecting victims. Again I transplanted these into 3 inch pots and in clumps. Some of the seedlings were bigger than others, so hopefully I’ll have a good selection to grow on further. I ended up with 8 pots, 7 I’ll most probably keep for myself and 1 I’ll give to my sister, if she wants more then she can have more. It’s all looking rather full in the greenhouse now which is great.
Once all was done in the greenhouse I then put some plants on the garden table that are due to go out in the allotment next time I’m down there.
Then it was time to give the front garden a little tidy. It’s been a little while since I’ve given it a bit of TLC. It wasn’t messy, just in need of a little hair cut. It didn’t take long, just a trim of my bush, a sweep of the paving stones, a slight weed, the obligatory gathering of rubbish that has blown in and then it was done. Hopefully it’ll be ok for a month, but I’ll keep on top of it and then it just need a quick look over and then doesn’t get out of hand. Little and often is the key or titivating, which I think is a wonderful word! Have a great Bank Holiday weekend. We’re hoping to have a BBQ tomorrow (the first of the year), hopefully the weather will be kind, but only time will tell. I must go, I’ve run out of wine in my glass, so need to go and fill it again. TTFN!!
