    Potted on all my tomato plants which are really getting big now. Kimberley, Stupice Bloody Butcher and Blaby getting really big now. Also potted on my chili planted. Checked over my strawberry plants and found two that have buds on them. Unfortunately I don't know which variety they are as I didn't label them when i took the runners in the autumn.

    Having been away from home for the last 6 months due to work I feel like I'm lagging badly behind but then again it's still pretty cold up here (although it's been a nice day here today) so I started off some early onward peas, beetroot, kohlrabi, broadbeans, tomatoes and some nasturtiums. I also put my onion sets into modules and placed them into the greenhouse as I think it may still be a little too cold for them to go out as such.

    Don't want to stop now! Better get sitting on my hands before I start other stuff off too early...

    Took a lot of rubbish down to the dumpit site. finished off painting the new wood base for the greenhouse I'm rebuilding, finished off putting up the wire mesh on top of my fence and lastly finshed off preparing the bed for my onions to go into tomorrow.
    It was dark. And cold. And very, very empty.

    And in the middle of all of the dark, cold, emptiness lay something darker, and colder, but very, very full.

    Default Backache

    Measured out beds and marked them out, spent two hours digging very stubborn weeds out of bed 6, didn't have time to plant onion sets as in-laws visiting, have leeks growing in mini greenhouse, first season on plot so am winging it at the moment but my husband built me two compost bins and a shed on thursday so at least i dont just have half a plot of mud and weeds anymore.....talking of which, is it ok to put all the weeds on the compost? Because thats what I've done inbetween layers of manure and straw that the site has delivered.
