Hi everyone!
I thought I would write a quick update on the 2m x 3m worm fest! I am very excited as the little seeds in the garden are poking their heads through the soil – salad leaves are growing thick and fast and Popeye’s spinach is loving it new home, whilst Granddad Charlie’s Boot-root is coming up fast behind (Sounds like the Grand National – all bets now being taken! hee hee) I have garlic that will be great if it keeps growing at this speed and the flower seeds in the little plastic greenhouse will need to be re-potted to develop on as they are getting ‘leggy!’ (I think that’s the correct technical term!)
I water my pots daily and lovingly put them in the sun and as I look closely at the tray of trailing lobelia wondering why its taken so long to grow, unlike its companions – it suddenly dawns on me…….. “Best I check the packet” – lo and behold, I forgot to plant them! I’ve been lovingly watering a tray of soil! Yes – official mad!

My canes are going up next week as the beans and sweet peas are getting big and will soon need going outside! (they are going in the border! potatoes in the pot!)

Indoor plants are going to be re-potted (as per my new GOY cacti friend’s suggestion!)
Its very exciting! Best I fly as I have a camera to charge ready for my supporting evidence!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Love & virtual hugs – Pita x :D

It's a pleasure to read your blogs Pita. Keep up the good work and lets have some pics.....Much better to talk to a seedless tray than to one where there the seeds refuse to germinate!!!!Done that plenty of times.

I keep moving mine around but we've been having very frosty mornings so I'm only thinking about putting them outside, lol, I always chatter to my plants and seedlings, I even swear at them sometimes if they misbehave, if I'm honest I've also watered a few empty trays in my time....
Keep up the good work Pita...
