    Good week forecast for Nothumberland this week combined with good shifts at work (4 days off and Wednesday is 5pm - 10pm) = catch up with jobs time for me!

    Today I potted up a load of bulbs that should have been done in the autumn *whoops* and laid out my potatoes to chit in the greenhouse. Also had a good tidy of pots full of dead plants (HHA flowers from the summer) - chucked twigs and old compost onto compost heap and put the empty pots into pile for cleaning (next weeks' job).


    Tuesday's jobs include.....

    Potting up onion & shallot sets in greenhouse.
    Digging up perennials from bottom beds and polytunnel beds and move to flower bed area at gate.

    IF I still have any daylight/energy left I'll make a start on emptying the raised beds in the ex-polytunnel and spread the soil onto the bottom area which is were my veg beds will be going.

    Emptying these two beds (30ft long, 4ft wide and 3ft high!) will probably take me most of the week but it needs done before Neil can dismantle it and build a new shed and chicken run there.

    Yesterday I managed to find time to sow some peppers and I moved the tomato seedlings to the taller grow lights as they were getting too big for the grow light garden.

    Friday jobs
    Continue tidying garage (basically the problem is that the lawn mower has no home due to getting an extra freezer last year, and wherever I put it it is in the way!)
    Remove moss from hosta pot
    Plan weekend gardening
    Check fence pots and water if necessary
    Check progress at allotment
    Dig horsetail if ground is dry enough
    Harvest beetroot, carrots
