    Yesterday, OH finished removing the leylandii so I now have room for a fruit cage. Checked the garlic - still seems OK despite the weather.

    Planted 40 shallots into modules in the greenhouse to get them off for to a good start (not heated, but it does keep the rain off for a bit)

    Cleared up dead tops of tarragon, cleared the dill and cut down the respberries (Autumn fruiting) ready for the new season.

    Can't wait until Spring....

    Yesterday, in the surprising January sun - filled 2 new raised beds with topsoil and manure, added the contents of the kitchen composter to the bean trench. Cleaned out and repositioned a bird house. Set up a new waterbutt to drain from the greenhouse guttering. Sowed a few more tomato seeds in pots to put in the airing cupboard.

    Yesterday I made what seemed like a million cardboard rolls, ready for when I sow parnsips, then sorted through my seed collection, cleared some rubbish iin the garden and put up my new mini-greenhouse. On Saturday I erected the cold frame and put some stuff in it, plus installed my bamboo edging on one soon-to-be-raised bed. Woo!

    I dug out some bramble roots before they get growing again, then I mulched the cleared ground with layers of newspaper, held down with said bramble roots.

    Noted that my Limnanthes green manure is doing a superb job ... a lovely green carpet of potential flowers, instead of weeds

    Called in at the lottie on the way back from T'ai Chi and picked a slack handful of chard leaves to add to the curry tonight. Talked nicely to my onion seedlings on the windowsill when I got back - they are coming up very nicely!

    Yesterday. (18th) I have sown some flower seed.

    Lavender Munstead Strain and Chinease Lanterns.

    Could not believe that the chinease lanterns can take 1 to 6 months to germinate!

    Both have been put in the propogator for now.
