Tuesday 24th May 2016 – Gosh I’ve got lots done today!

This morning was another split morning. I was at my allotment for about 50 minutes getting done what I could before I left to go and see another film at our local Odeon. Today I went o see “Our Kind of Traitor”. Not a bad film. It wasn’t part of the Silver Cinema, so now tea and biscuits before you went in, but I had my flask of coffee which they don’t mind you taking in. There were about 10 of us in the cinema. The seats at our Odeon are the new ones and are very comfortable, and there is loads of leg room. When you have legs as long as mine (33.5 inches, yes you heard me correctly, bloody nightmare buying trousers!) it’s very important to have enough space. To me Stellan Skarsgard was the best thing about the film, although Naomie Harris and Ewan McGregor were very close behind. After the film, I went back to my plots and continued where I left off from. I spent my time on my plots cutting grass, weeding and re planting Strawberries in tyres, and having a bit of a tidy. I managed another 3 barrow loads of green waste, so that was a good feeling. Once I got home and had a little sit down with the kids, I then went into my greenhouse at home to plant some Pak Choi “Colour & Crunch F1”, and Mixed “Lettuce Red Leaves”. The greenhouse is now completely full, so I’m going to have to do a bit of shuffling about over the next couple of days and move some stuff down to the greenhouse on my allotment. I’m so glad I’ve got 2 greenhouses, I don’t know what I would have done otherwise. So a fun filled day. Dinner, beer, bath and sleep and then repeat again tomorrow, although no cinema tomorrow, bell ringing in the afternoon instead.

    Claire, the Cinema with an 11 year old grandson in the house consists of “Captain America”, “The Avengers”, “X-Men the apocalypse”, etc. Super heroes abound in the household and neighborhood. If he could have one super power, it would be flying. So he told me. As for me, I’d like to have the Flash’s speed to be able to get the gardening tasks done at super speed. Especially those weeding sessions.

    Sounds like you have a similar schedule as mine. Gardening is weaved into the social side of life. It’s been difficult to get into the garden and do much this week. It has rained every day so far and the forecast is to continue through Sunday. The soil in my garden does not work well when wet. It’s sticky and dries in rock hard chunks if worked too wet.

    Once your trays of greens are planted do you bottom water or top water to keep them watered? I haven’t grown greens for a couple years. No one in my house hold eats salads except me. Now that I’ve watched your video, I might throw in a small patch or two just for me.

    Have a great day in the greenhouse and on the allotment.

    • Both our kids (16 & 14) are huge fans of Captain America, DC, Marvel, and the rest. We’ve not yet seen X-Men, but will most probably this weekend. There’s no rush as it’ll be in the cinema for ages. We’ve also had the conversation “What super power would you like?” Mine would be either being able to fly, but I think I would prefer to be invisible. Just think what you could do. I hope the rain eases off very soon, and you’re able to get back outside. We had a few spit spots this morning, but nothing to worry about. When my plants are in pots, then I water from the bottom, but once they’re in the ground outside, then you have to water from the top. Aim the water near the main stem and without the sprinkler on, then the water goes straight down and to where it’s needed.
