Friday 13th May 2016 – I may be stroking it too much!!

This morning I was up my allotment again. This time I wanted to tackle a rather large bed. To my surprise, all the rain has made the soil very easy to dig, which is brilliant. The bed I was working my way through today must have been about 2 meters by about 6 meters. In 2 and a half hours I managed to go from a bed that was full of Groundsel to a bed without out any weeds in at all. I remember my nan picking the Groundsel to give, as a treat, to her Canary bird that she named Henry! Blimey that was a few years ago now! I was rather pleased with what I’d managed to accomplish. It was 2 barrow loads of weeds, so hopefully that’ll give you some idea of what I had worked my way through.

All ready fro next weeks sowing fest! Can't wait.

Then this afternoon I was back in my greenhouse potting up my Lemon Grass into a much larger pot. I sowed the Lemon Grass from seed on March 3rd and it’s been growing very happily on my kitchen window sill every since. Now they’re getting too large for the 3 inch pot I put them in, so it’s time to move them to their new home. I hope they’ll be happy in their new pot.

    Claire, lemon grass? I imagine it is used for some kind of seasoning or flavoring in cooking. What do you use it for? I am open to new seasonings but don’t use many as of yet.

    Have a great day in the greenhouse.
