what a busy week
i’ve not had much time this week to catch up with everyone but I have been thinking of you all while I was working! at last we managed to finish the stone paths in the polytunnel and fix catches onto the doors to keep them shut! It’s created a lovely sanctuary for us especially when its raining
Last year we planted out the squash and pumpkins on the last day of May and we had 1 night of frost which ruined all our hard work so this year we waited and have only just started to plant the seeds! We have got 255 seeds and had precisely… no pots so after some research we found a place who delivered us 440 pots at 6p each which i thought was a bargain!
Ive planted out my nasturtiums and marigolds around the brassicas, lettuce and herb bed! Tom didn’t realise that i had originally planted the seeds directly into the raised beds and had weeded all my flowers out so i put them into cells til they were big enough for him to recognise as flowers! I am now on weeding duty!
I have competed 10 hanging baskets which are filling out already! We spent the morning at my in laws helping to chop down 3 holly trees which I was tricked into helping… in my white cardigan which is now green! arrggghh! Tom has been busy building a frame for the raised bed to stop the naughty wind blowing our seeds away!
I’ve been doing lots more planting, weeding, tying up tomatoes and cucmber etc! Fennel has been planted I love the smell of the seeds!!! I’m feeling a bit down tho today as I found out yesterday my Grandma is moving to Scotland to join the rest of my family she was my last remining relative in England and whilst I’m happy for her I can’t help feeling a little sad! It’s empty nest syndrome but the wrong way around!! :(
