    Yesterday:

    Cleared ground ready for raised bed #3, built raised bed #3, filled raised bed #3 and nourished raised bed #3. Sowed some spinach, more sunflowers, few chilli and some chives. Soaked some fresia seeds.

    Today:

    Weeded around beds, planted Jerusalem artichokes (thanks pukka.tukka), tidied up the sage and took some bits off to root in a pot. Repotted the bay tree (as the frost resistant pot wasn't frost resistant ). Weeded the strawberry planter. Sowed thems fresias.
    Excuse me, could we have an eel? You've got eels down your leg.

    Took out some garlic and leeks from OH's borders [in for the winter on bed-loan], and move to the onion bed until ready.

    Harvested PSB and some leeks for tonight's dinner.

    Today I potted on 11 Tiger Tom seedlings (from the HSL) 5 Bla and ck Krim seedlings (from Phreddy) 3 California Wonder peppers (from Hazel) - can't believe I STILL spend so much on seeds too!
    Put a few things outside to harden off in the day. Was hoping to get to the semi-plot this aft but the weather looks iffy again and the ground is soaking. Made Oat bread and a big pan of Chilli - comfort food weather!
    Whoever plants a garden believes in the future.

    repotted very rootbound lavender (n.b. to self, stick to plastic pots as you cant squeeze terracotta pots to ease out roots). Spawn of satan wanted to help (very rare moment) so made him dig over the soil ready for the fruit bushes and some wild flowers, then we sowed pumpkin, nasturtium, and teddy bear, giant yellow and elite sunflowers. I watched amused as an 9 year old and a 34 year old (hes new to it all bless him ) got all excited as the sweetcorn and runner seedlings have sprouted, for which every couple of hours they insisted they have grown at least a mill . my moms insisted i grow some gourds this year so orf to the garden centre to get them along with compost i need. got to finish edging my veg boarder snows putting me orf though, im thinking if i concentrate enough it will do it itself

    OK. Yesterday, I sowed seeds of Coriander, Sweet Marjoram, Spinach, Lambs Lettuce, Parsley, Sorrel, more salad leaves, and more salad leaves. And I had just the most amazing time in my Little Girls Greenhouse, listening to the radio, sowing all of that, and soaking up every gorgeous sunbeam that was going for free.... If none of it germinates, I still had a great time....! You?
