I can't believe it, I have the day off and it is dry! At last I can get out into the garden and get started on my veg. I'm sure all of you more experienced people already have things well under way, but I'm new to this so haven't got a clue what to do when. My son dug over my little veg patch for me last week so today I planted some spinach and put black plastic over the rest of the patch. It will stop the weeds coming up and all the cats in the neighbourhood who have been using it as their personal poo patch. I also planted some of my chitted potatoes into bags, I really love new potatoes I can't wait to dig my fingers into the earth to find the waxy, full of flavour beauties. I'm feeling a bit like Barbara from the good life, there'll be pigs in the garden next :)
I have gone a bit over the top with my seed buying but hopefully I will find space somewhere to plant most of them. Some of them will have to go into pots. I am hoping the spaghetti squash will be a success and Zucchino custard white seeds I bought when I was at the Eden Project. I'm probably being a bit too ambitious, it will all end in tears.
It felt wonderful to get out into the garden, clomping around in my welly boots while the birds hovered around tweeting loudly at me, waiting for me to go indoors so they could get to the birds feeders. A little bit of sun makes such a difference, I found myself singing away to myself as I filled the bags.
I bought some tomato and cucumber seeds the other day, I'm guessing I should be doing something with them. My greenhouse has an inch of water in it, seems to flood every year, I will have to get out there and start bailing it out but I'm not looking forward to that. My shoulder is telling me I have done enough for one day.
The spring flowers are looking beautiful and there are little buds appearing on the shrubs. Summer will soon be here. Happy days :)
I'm pleased to report the spiraliser has not been sitting in it's box. I have been using it a lot and will show you what I have been making with it soon.
Have a wonderful weekend blogger buddies,
