Just thought you’d like to see my lovely dogwood I gratefully accepted from a generous freecycler. Looks like it’s hapoy in it’s new home.
Back on the 28th February I tweeted about the need to begin my veggie patch for the year because my father-in-law had delivered some chitted potatoes and onion sets.
And at last the weather has allowed me to get out in the garden and get the veggie patch underway. A little bit anyhow!
So here’s the progress so far…
The veg patch has been dug over, leaf mould & compost out of my potato bags added,
Garlic cloves planted,
Onions set planted,
Started preparing area for new veg bed,
Lovely hubby kindly did some running repairs on my shed/glasshouse door,
And we had our first visitor, a fat juicy worm!
So that’s it the work has begun, no rest for the wicked now!
The snow has cleared and the sun is doing it’s best to come out so my thoughts have turned to my veg garden for this year. Last year was my first real attempt at a veg garden. Courgettes (zucchini) were the most successful crop. Even made a chocolate cake with them – really! Lost potatoes and tomatoes to blight and something ate my radishes. Carrots didn’t seem to do much, not sure why. So tomorrow I will be quizzing the father-in-law, he has an allotment, for advice and then drawing up my plan. I’ll keep you posted.
