Sun’s out. Time to give the veg patch some attention.
Sadly, at the end of the year we will no longer have access to the garden which is at the rear of the building where I work. The business is moving to new premises so this season will be our last. The move will mean some unwelcome changes for me but right now I’m trying to remain positive.
I am happy to report that our scarecrow (‘Han Scarecrow’ made in May 2015 for the Star Wars themed village scarecrow festival. We were highly commended!) is still standing guard and looking good but the plot itself needed a bit of a tidy up after a winter of neglect.
After digging over and dismantling the old bean sticks, it looks ready for action.
We have some seed potatoes ‘chitting’ on the windowsill. These are almost ready to go in. The local nursery had some pea plants and beetroot – these will be planted out in place.
I have some seeds to sow, some directly in the garden, others I plan to start in pots on the windowsill: runner beans, carrots, sugar snaps, Swiss chard. I will also be growing courgettes, green and yellow ones if I can find them.
Summer salads sorted, lots of slimming world speed foods and plenty of chutney for the winter.
