    Default Chilli planting

    Planted a tray of Dorset Naga seeds and put them in the airing cupboard. Just touched one of the seeds on my tongue before planting - ouch

    Decided to rejuvenate my herb garden which I started when we moved here - 8 years ago. The sage was like a tree, in spite of having a couple of very close haircuts in the past. The rosemary was long and gangly, so I bought 3 well grown herbs for £5 at Wilko's - sage, rosemary and oregano - and did the deed today. Much tidier and you can now see the snowdrops and the nose ends of the daffs - I like a few pretties in with my herbs.

    PS updated me blog!

    I went to garden centre. Bought a bucket thing, compost and some seed potatoes to grow in it. Bought some flowering bulbs to plant in spring. Hoed my bed, cut back some lavender and planted an evergreen which was pot-bound. Can't seem to go there without spending over fifty quid. Must stay away!

    After spending (too much) time on the vine waiting for the shops to open, I went and bought a kettle, four enamel mugs, parafin and two elephant tubs - all for the lottie.

    Went to lottie, measured and did an inventory of what's been left there, took piccies, talked to the Allotment Association Secretary.

    Went and had a pint (lottying's thirsty work even if you haven't dug anything) . Dropped into two mates on the way home and had cupsa tea. Desperate for loo by then.

    Now sat sitting here watching 'Enders, glass of wine, waiting for dinner to cook.

    Lovely, happy day - sigh .

    Wasn't/isn't the weather gorgeous.

    Dropped mk1 son to work and decided to go wander round Wilkinsons with my birthday money from my Dad. Got me a fig, lemon and orange tree, new gardening gloves, stainless steel trowel, some sweetpea seeds and gravel trays and still got 20 quid left!!

    Sowed some 125 sweetpea seeds, and 10 calabrese autumn variety and some yellow italian sweet peppers.
    Happy Gardening,
    Shirley

    Today I started to dig My first 4ft X 20ft bed. Put plenty of horse poo in. Think that will be for my potatoes. With it being my first year, I didnt know weather to put in any organic matter in the other 3 as shouldnt there be enough nutriants in the soil (clay) anyway ? Any suggestions would be grateful.
