Not bought a book for a least a day so I've invested a tenner in that Hungary Gap one in Feb's issue.
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.
Had to take I-pig to the vets as he got into a fight last night and got bitten on the leg - he's off his tree on pain killers at the moment but still wants to go out. What a headcase.
The greenhouse is filling up with this years goodies - I am goingto really try and grow enough lettuces to eat this year as I always start well but end up forgetting to plant it every couple of weeks. Must do better
Wow seeds sprouting already, how exciting!
And a big thank you to the people at work who says they will gro plants as well
I am however begining to dread the thought of where to put all these plants to keep them safe from the frost.
3rd March 2011
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 :
