The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



Well, I’ve dug up all of the vegetable patch and I’m making progress with the lawn. I have thousands of seedlings colonating my living room aswell as every window sill in the house, and another 1 or 2 seed trays (40 or 80 plants) that need putting into a cell of their own. Mum’s offered to buy me a couple of those little greenhouses, which is sweet; she’s done so much for me in this new place! And it’s not easy for her; she has no car, no money and 4 younger kids living with her still, so she really is going out of her way. Which is more than I can say for my other half; he left the other day :-( Which sucks. But hey, gardening is cathartic :-D And I don’t have him grumbling every time I drag mud into the ENTIRELY WASHABLE kitchen floor.

Oh, and as a point, if anyone lives near me(Bordon, Hampshire) and wants some leek, pepper, cabbageorpumpkin seedlings, they’re going free to a good home :-) I’m desperate to get rid ofsomebut I can’t just chuck them on the compost heap!

Anywas, fI’ll be slowing down a bit now that I’m on my own, but mum and Tony (ste-dad) are coming around sometime this week or on Monday to help somemore.

Sorry to hear of your family troubles Anni. That is hard when you're suddenly on your own....However, look on the bright can now do exactly what you want, when you want...and don't have to put up with his family telling you how to prick out your seedlings. LOL.
Put your love and energy into your little boy and your garden. There's nothing like a warm hug from little arms and getting your hands into the soil to destress.
Lovely for you to have such a supportive Mum. Bless her. And your step-Dad.
