    Finished weeding the front garden. It was a battle of wills and I'm not sure who won. Then I went and re-planted my cabbages that my dog had lovingly dug up for me. Yes the dog is still alive (just)

    Started to help mum sort her front garden out.
    She had a lavender bush that had gone all woody and decided to take it out,whilst doing that found that most of it was rotten.
    She has also got a lot of other bushes that she has decided she no longer wants. So we decided to have a go at them and it started to rain...which is just typical.

    Dark and miserable here today so I cleared up some of the residue from my Dad's office move (how come he seems to have moved to our house?) then cleared some kitchen worktop and sowed:

    Various interesting beans kindly sent by Two_Sheds
    Asparagus peas from Eco Chick
    Some squash seeds from Nicos
    Ezetha's Blauwschok purple peas
    Sugar peas
    More cut and come again salad leaves (bunged all my various types in one jar and now have them in a salt cellar to sprinkle sow)

    Chucked out the pinks seedlings which have slowly died off whether pricked out or not (maybe I am just not destined to grow flowers)
    Happy Gardening,
    Shirley

    A warm but cloudy day here. Easter Hols, so I spent a total of 7 hrs gardening:

    - sowed pre-germinated peas (Hurst Greenshaft)
    - transplanted loo roll peas (Feltham First)
    - sowed radish, lettuce, onions, beetroot direct (nice warm soil)
    - at home, dug out another border & filled it with daffs, anemone, honeysuckle, and a philadelphus

    Today I sowed kohlrabi, carrot red samurai and carrot purple haze.
    Went to the garden centre and bought canes for me broad beans and french beans.
    Potted on some toms and peppers and 24 stock plants. Fixed canes in place for broad beans and tied string between canes.

    Nearly, nearly, nearly finished my chook run frame. All sides as well as top are wired now apart from one small section which I shall finish tomorrow!
    Next job is to flag the base so that the feather legged variety of birds don't get all gunged up in mud! It will also stop foxy trying to burrow underneath as when he comes up the other side he will bash his nut on a paving flag!

    With the rest of my Globe Artichoke seedlings coming through, you just have to pot them on too?! or they die. So I potted them on didn't I?!? No, you're right. I probably WILL need all of these Globes next year!!
    And there were some Aubergine seedlings needing potting on, and Aubergines are very very close to my heart, one can never have enough of them for cooking with in the Autumn.

    My dwarf Cape Gooseberry seedlings are developing really slowly, but maybe now that I've potted them on also, we may see a significant improvement over the next few weeks.

    I'm really enjoying reading all of your 'What I Did Today' posts. X.
