    Today I've moved loads of garden "stuff" out of my conservatory and into the greenhouse where it belongs. Put up 2 pasting tables as temporary space for the seed trays etc, pricked out some dahlias, gazania, and something else that my friend didn't know the name of but thinks it's something like "Goblia" (can't find it in the books but it's a pretty flower) and sowed some Marigolds that I got from Two-sheds last year
    My girls found their way into my heart and now they nest there

    Godetia? Lovely frilly pink petals. A friend of mine grows it every year.

    No, definitely not Godetia, it's a sort of yellow chrysanth type flower, very pretty. I might be able to identify it better once it's got some decent leaves (and it flowers!)

    Sowed a new batch of coriander (Slowbolt variety)as we use a lot of it. It is on a north facing windowsill, along with one batch sowed about a month ago, which is starting to get decent size true leaves. I plan to keep sowing the coriander regularly as we just cant get enough for stirfries, Thai dishes and just about everything else that we cook...

    Garden-wise I pruned my grapevine but had to re-stack a load of logs so far too tired to do anything else!

    Welsh Wizard - can you tell me the name of the slowbolt coriander you've just sown?

    Today I planted 3 blackcurrants, 2 red currants, 4 gooseberries and started to get my first raised bed ready to receive the strawberries that are anxiously waiting 2 rows rasps already in, done on Friday.
    I tidied and cleared the weeds and started to peg out the new path (straight this time). Prepared three sites for my Lidl fruit trees which I'll need to bring up to the allotment.
    Over the weekend my OH finished my fence/windbreak and the permanent bean poles and today he stapled some of the green scaffolders mesh to the windbreak so hopefully I won't have any more wind casualties this year.

    Still have more trees to plant this week... and my friend and I have just taken on another plot - but this one has a shed and conservatory - oh joy!!
    Feeling tired but very happy, but oh my hands are so sore - have been digging and weeding for 4 days now.

    today i daydreamed some more about potato planting on saturday. i wish the evenings were longer already so i could go to the plot after work and fuss over the onions and garlic! Oh, and I turned the seedlings on my windowsill so they grow back straight again.
