Daily doings.


By marge


Hi, been to my gardening class today. We are getting round to the nitty gritty stuff today, started learning about the P/H stuff.
Next week we have to take some of our garden soil, and test it.

Unfortunately I can’t go next week. I know that it is clay soil, from when I have been digging. So will have to do my own soil test.

My little seed order came today of things to set off next year. I only have a small veg plot, I am having to be more selective in the coming season, they are mostly smaller salad crops that I intend to grow.

That’s it for now, happy gardening.

great stuff Marge, you never stop learning do you? thats the wonderful thing about gardening,
in the words of my dear old grandad "never mind the plants, feed the soil and the soil will feed the plants, well its stood the test of time for me, Good luck, Dave.

Hello Marge ~
Lori [ from Canada ] recently wrote a good blog on soil testing.
Very useful photos also.
I found it extremely helpful.
You're doing well with your garden plans.
If you're not sure how to find Lori's blog on GoY, send me a p.m. and I'll explain. :o)
