Had a hard days work in the garden today! thought i’d start with an easy job so watered all the greenhouse and polytunnel. I then planted the strawberries from the garden centre and the currants I got from Wilko last year as twiglets!
Ta da all the fruit raised beds finished!
As the sun was shining i thought I would move the pallet of compost from the trailer into the greenhouse only problem it was sooo heavy the tractor wouldn’t lift it and so every bag was lifted by me! I only got half the pallet done!
So after working up an appetite and eating left over bangers and mash from tea last night proceeded with my work! only now it was raining!! i dashed into the workshop and decided to saw the bottoms off some plant pots ready for the tomato experiement! Lifted the last two bags of compost into the greenhouse then used the bags to create a well in the bottom of one side of the greenhouse! I filled this with 4 (more) heavy bags of grit placed the sawn pots on top filled and potted on the tomatoes! The idea is the roots will go into the grit and we feed from the top and water from the bottom!
i planted the beans into plastic pint pots as we are fast running out of the traditional plant pots! Also planted the sunflowers, marigolds and nasturtiums…
…and while all this was going on the chicks have been busy hatching!
Phew what a day!!!
