March 2023 Update

Well we’re now into March, although the weather seems to think it’s January.

Still there’s lots of things to do in the greenhouse and garden, just lots of cups of warm tea and millions of layers are needed. We seem to have some baby bunnies that have made their way into our garden from the field at the back. Not sure how they got in, but I’ve caught 2 so far and put them back in the field so they can find their families, the other 2 are still at large. I think I’ll have to bait the humane traps with some carrot later on.

The seeds I sowed in early February are growing well, some better than others. So in this video I’ll show you what I’m doing this month. It’s a case of little and often at this time of year. I hope you find what I’m showing you helpful.

If you want to encourage little ones to get out into the garden and start growing then Lottie and Dottie are here to help them on their journey. Click HERE to go to my Etsy page. The books are going fast at this time of year and I am running out of my Pumpkins and Sunflowers books, so get them while you can.
