First day of spring

First day of spring

Now when I was going through the old bereft case that I stored my seeds in it got left behind in the shed when we moved in December  but it was reunited to me a  week ago smells very musty some of the seeds were damp one of them were some broad beans I was going to through them a way in the bin but thought I would see if they would grow so I planted then it to a big pot with a tree in  and all the loose  seeds which were dry I just sprinkled on a small patch and we will see what happens

All these seeds were nice and dry that I sowed below

Chilli pepper (cayenne hot )

Onion seed (Bedfordshire champion)

Spring onion (white l white Lisbon)

Tomato (red pear)

Leek (Lyon 2 prize taker)

Now this came from Face book but useful if you do not want things flying around at night while you’re eating

The sun has been lovely this afternoon  let’s hope it is like this tomorrow want to put my washing out on the line

Today I have changed some hanging baskets around in the front one has yarrow in it and I cannot Rember what the other plant is but I hope it will look good and by the yarrow I put a small bird box  by it

I put some pots by the wildlife pond that needs a clean and some get some   Oxygenator & floating plants    as it has not had any it at all

I think they only used for drink cans I put my trail cam to have a look  and if I am happy with the pots their I will plant them properly in that area and I might replace the blue washing up bowl  pond with a red washing up bowl but I will drain the water into another container then use my sieve to catch the dead flies or bees I take a close look  and if there any pond wildlife they can crawl back into the new pond

On Sunday morning 22/03/2015

I found this lovely  vase of Daffolds  what a nice surprise on my doorstep  they smell lovely pity I do not  have  FLOWER PRESS  otherwise I might press them towards the end of the week  as a keep sake  .

WEEDING TIME AGAIN

Since Sunday I have slowly been weeding the very back narrow border at the back of the garden

I have a little bit left to do and it by my dove cote and then I will carry on down the side and de weed the raspberry patch and dig over another bed not sure if I am going to make it into a raised bed to stop the dogs walking over the area and leaving calling cards on it.

I am in the middle of moving some of my compost bins as I am going to putting  my greenhouse up and it should be sheltered from the winds and the sun sits all day over that area where I am planingIMG_1888 (1) to put

it sheltered from the wind and i have made some adjustments well David has he put some zip tiers round the poles  top and bottom to keep the cover on and from lifting up

so far i have my 3 year old Chill plant my pineapple  plant just potted on some sage plants  and butterfly mix plants

Apogees
