    Yesterday i actually got some gardening done!!

    Planted out 26 garlic plants into the veg patch which have been in modules since end of September, got about another 15 to go out but they were planted a bit later so are still quite small. Planted 3 more Autumn Bliss raspberry canes & raked B&Q Soil improver over the bed as a mulch. Finally got around to planting up my vacant new flower bed which was dug at the end of last summer. In the greenhouse i noticed that some of my Sweetpea seeds are starting to make an appearence after quite a number of weeks, i was starting to lose hope. Quite a productive 3 hours. Still haven't managed to get any veg seeds sown so need to get them done - today hopefully!

    Mown the lawn, planted some onion sets and dug over some more of the plot.
    Not much but I got a sweat on, and I'm pleased.

    Is your lawn growing already?Our one still looks "wintery" although I can see plenty of little hills(worms).

    I converted another piece of lawn into growing space so I have 2nd bed for climbing french's ready.The big dalek is nearly empty,there's just a small compost bin left.

    I'll have to do some wash up to clean my hands though

    Slightly tired but happy-a few hours well spent-outside,not stuck in the car or the building

    - dug loads of buttercups out (again)
    - weeded & mulched the apple tree
    - filled up raised bed with well-rotted compost
    - was very pleased that the Meeces in my compost heap turned out to be Voles instead

    Been to plot and finished digging Asparagus bed and 2 potato beds. Also dug a pit for climbing beans, lined with lots of wet cardboard and refilled. All my muscles aching like Billyo, but very pleased. Plot starting to look like a proper one now even though theres still lots to do.
