I returned from my weeks break full of the joys of spring. Alas, it didn’t last for long – I woke on Monday morning with a streaming cold, thumping headache, my nose felt like someone had left a tap running – I came back to earth with a bang.
Tuesday wasn’t much better either – my new computer threw a ‘wobbly’ and went berserk. I called my computer man who came and spent three hours trying to fathom what had gone wrong – thankfully, he got it sorted and all is well.
I was determined to do some gardening as the weather has been lovely all week – I had to keep a tissue clamped to my nose whilst I bent down to weed and get rid of thousands of forget-me-not seedlings that have covered the garden over winter – but I have made good headway, and filled the wheelie bin with trug loads of weeds and winter detritus.
Over winter I have been giving the veg garden some serious thought as to how to fit everything in now that I don’t have my allotment – the short answer is that I can’t. So choices have to be made – squash is out of the question, they just take up too much room and maybe only one courgette plant for the same reason. I won’t bother with broad beans this year, but can manage a couple of troughs of peas. It’s just a case of growing what we enjoy eating rather than trying to grow a bit of everything.
Flower seeds have been sown but I haven’t got round to sowing any veg seed yet – they are next on the list.
Right – here come this weeks pictures.
Til next time – have a good weekend, and remember …
