  1. The hungary gap

    by , 11-03-2011 at 09:59 AM
    Not bought a book for a least a day so I've invested a tenner in that Hungary Gap one in Feb's issue.

    Lovage anyone?

    I think Im going to work on the DIY beehive I saw advertised somewhere as well.

    Hoping to get to the lottie this weekend as well - no doubt rain will stop play

    The I-pig now needs a tooth out and a scale and polish. Is he having any problems eating asked th vet - obviously not I said seeing as he's 6 kilos!

    On the gardening front I have just planted up the first of the leeks and some more peas. It's a bit windy here so I'm suprised the greenhouse hasn't done one.

    I am however begining to dread the thought of where to put all these plants to keep them safe from the frost.

    A good day today - managed to get all my broad bean plants in. Raked and manured bed 2. Added a blackcurrant to my cordoned row of redcurrants. Put in my asparagus bed and added a rhubarb next to my other one - this time variety is Red Champagne.
    Used all rotted manure - need to go and get more. One third of the allotment is now completely cleared and tidy looking.
    Am a happy bunny as two beds and a path completed. Only another four beds and three paths to go : ...
