    Bought many, many 6 inch pots to pot up various plants in. Gave away most of my aloe vera babies: one neglected plant was split into 8 babies! I just can't kill the thing.

    25 additional Cambridge Favourite Strawberry crowns arriving tomorrow, the dozens of strawbs in greenhouse showing plenty of flowers so all good there...
    Watered patch with added 10% "liquid gold", seems to make sense, its free, good for the plants and organic as it comes.

    PSB looks a bit happier now, has stopped sulking and started growing.

    - ordered a *few* more plants from eBay
    - sowed lots and lots: mostly hardy annuals for our new garden, plus sprouts
    - erected a 4th plastic greenhouse
    - picked the 1st Camellia flower to come out (late this year)
    - planted Skerry Blue spuds in pots on the patio
    - pricked out a tray of Baby Blue Eyes
    - potted on my young Camellia & Acers
    - sowed carrots in loo rolls & some in pots on the patio
    - painted another 3 fence panels & planted honeysuckle
    - plotted which bit of lawn to dig up next (it's right in the middle - Mr Sheds will have a fit)

    I planted Swiss Chard today, "White Silver". Another sunny day, with a breeze.

    Rained all morning managed to get in the garden about 3pm. Planted my garlic which I got from ebay. It was 2 months old. Also was given some wild garlic so I planted that as well.

    Since yesterday at 3 pm, I have planted 10 pointed cabbages, 10 calabreses, 10 cauliflowers, 50 sturon onions, 5 Jerusalem artichokes, 30 allium mollies, and 16 picasso potato seeds. And, I double dug for most of them.

    I planted out dozen Magnum Bonum and a dozen Ezetha's Krombek Blauwschok peas, each group with its own wigwam. Then I direct-sowed a row of pea Canoe which grows to about two and a half feet.
    Did some Chooky playing. They are itching to get out. Chicken Out day tomorrow!

    Today I sowed crimson flowered broad beans. Put log roll edging along my front path to stop chipped bark spilling over but found I didn't have enough so back to garden centre and bought 3 more rolls. Decided to re-pot fennel in bigger pot as it had rooted through my gravel and weed membrane and the pot it was in had frost damage. Picked up the pot and the edge broke off causing it to drop and spill soil and broken pot all over other plants and gravel grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! After trying to remove soil from gravel as best I could, I eventually potted fennel up into its new pot! Spent a while clearing up broken bits of terracotta. Planted 4 new chamomile treneague plants in front garden to fill a few gaps.
