Sunday 28th June 2015 – Sorting out more plants.

Saturday was busy with one thing and another, but Sunday afternoon was mine to play with as I wished. We were out in the morning shopping in Kingston for various things and when we got home Mark and I then went food shopping. I usually do this on my own, but I seem to have trapped a nerve in the right hand side of my neck and the pain goes down and round my shoulder blade. I’m not sure how I did it, but wow it’s painful. I’ve got some strong pain killers to take which are working like a dream. Hopefully it won’t last long and will go in a couple of days. I’ve got a lot to do on the allotment next week. So once I was mostly pain free and after all the shopping was away I went out in the garden to sort out more plants in the greenhouse. I’ve now put together all the staging for the greenhouse on the allotment, so just need to take that down. Mark and I were going to use both cars today to do that, but I’m not supposed to drive when I’m on these pain killers (I was walking round Sainsbury’s very spaced out). So I’ll have to move them little and often next week. I potted up my 8 Okra Plants into 6 inch pots. They’re growing the best they’ve ever grown, and I have a flowers on one of them. I just want them to give me some fruit and then I’ll be happy.

My Okra are growing well. You can see 1 flower on the plant on the left hand side.

Then I potted up 28 Cauliflowers seedling in 3 inch pots. The variety is “Romanesco” which are green. 24 of the seedlings are for me and 4 are for my sister. Then it was time to tidy up the Salad Bed. The Radish that I’d sown ages ago had finished and the Spring Onions were all but done. Some of the Salad Leaves had gone to seed, so it was time for some more to go in. This time I put in some Chives, Parsley, Lettuce and another couple of rows of Spring Onions and Radish “Bright Lights”. I watered them all in well as the weather is going to be getting very hot this week. If you have problems with foxes or cats digging up newly dug earth, then you can always put down some spicy pepper on the soil and this really helps. They sniff it, and it burns the inside of their nose for a while and makes them sneeze. They won’t be trying that again.

Bottom left is Cayenne Pepper sprinkled on the soil. It helps to deter foxes and cats. Replace after rain though.

Well that was all for Sunday, nothing like a restful weekend.
