    Today we've sowed onions, 4 types of chilli, 1 type pepper, 5 types tomatoes, mixed aubergines, celery, carrots, cabbage, parsley, spring onions (trying them early indoors) chamomile. Potted up some late bulbs for cutting flowers tulips, daffs and giant alliums. Took 12 fig cuttings and tried lots of methods to root and tried rooting a blueberry and plum cutting (I say cutting but infact the dog snapped them when she was on a rampage). And OH put up a new 5mx5m bed in frozen ground go him! And yesterday we tidied the 2 sheds and outhouse. Umm can you tell we have been stuck at home lol

    sowed some more flower seeds for the border and hanging baskets..
    May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back,
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
    Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand

    First post in here

    Divided compost heap in to two manageable sections, one with rotted compost (5ft high), the other empty (1ft below ground level oops) ready for this years scraps and waste.

    Also placed a sheet of guttering to one side of the shed ready to start collecting some h2o (once my water butt arrives), and started an online blog about growing veg for the first time

    Received my new tomato seeds through the post from Suttons: Red Robin & Little Sun. I've grown Red Robin before & really liked them, Little sun is it's sister variety with Yellow toms. May have to sow a few for early toms!

    I moved a load of woodchip today and tried to make the blackberries climb up the fence rather than across my plot....They are supposed to stop vandals climbing over the fence
