New beginnings - once again!!


By ducky


I feel like I have begun over again – this weekend I stated to make my raised beds for my veg garden – although I didnt get too much done as the girls wanted to help and my OH was at the football. But a start has been made.

Sunday was leisurely with various seed planting done to grow under cover. The girlies have adopted one coldframe each and chosed a selection of seeds to plant (easy to tell which way they will go – one has chosed all flowers apart from peas, the other has chosen stuff that can be eaten except sunflowers!)

I have mastered the greenhouse heater and givien it a name (apologies to Hywel and any other welsh chums) it is called Idris, after the little smoke breathing dragon on Ivor the Engine – I thought it was a perfect name for something small, mysterious and prone to soot!!

lol. I think Idris is a good name for your heater. ( no apologies needed ) . I hope he's doing a good job. I'll have to christen mine :o)
It's great that your children are both taking an interest in the garden aswell.
