Yes today is World Naked Gardening Day (first Saturday in May), and this afternoon I’ve been in my very hot greenhouse wearing minimal clothing. Gravity takes over on certain parts of the body as you get older, and naked crouching is never very attractive, whatever age your are. This afternoon I potted up 18 Sweet Pepper seedlings. They’ve been growing well, but were very slow to start. Like me they don’t like the cold.
Once I had done the Sweet Peppers, I then continued with the mammoth task of potting on my Tomato seedlings. I’ve managed to pot up loads more, but still have a couple of varieties left to do. Hopefully I’ll be able to get those done tomorrow. So I now have another 18 “Moneymaker”, 12 “Bountiful” and 45 “Garden Pearl”. Not sure where I’ll put all those, but I’m sure I’ll find space somewhere. Now it’s time to put on a t-shirt and go and get some Fish and Chips for dinner. It’s been a busy day. I had a bell ringing competition this morning. In our Guild, we have 4 Districts, and we were competing against each other. Sounds a bit like The Hunger Games, but no one dies. You’re told what method to ring, and this year it was Double Norwich Court Bob Major (like you all know what that is). You’re judged on your striking, rhythm and general performance. It’s very competitive. I’m very please to report that we came first!! I’m still in shock. The last, and only time that our District won was in 2011, and the competition has been going for decades. We won by one and a half points!! So to celebrate we’re having fish and chips and I’m having a beer.
