It’s been raining

all day here in London today, which I don’t mind. That and the still mild temperatures have got to be good for the plot.

Following on from a week ago Sunday I did a couple of hours work last Tuesday and Thursday. The first thing I did was to plant the daffodil bulbs that I had been given in clumps around the flower half of the plot.

In the vegetable half I planted two short rows of onions, and sowed a short row each of Corn Salad Verte de Cambrai, Japanese Greens Mizuna, Kale Dwarf Green Curled and Lettuce Winter Density.

I broadcast some more flower seeds – Cornflower 513-cornflower-large.jpg Tall Mixed , Eschscholzia Single Mixed, Larkspur Hyacinth Dwarf Mixed and Nigella Persian Jewels Mixed.

That’s about it apart from the planned roses and raspberries, and a couple of promised donations from my kind neighbours.

From now on I’ll finish forking and weeding the areas that I only turned over once a while back, sort out where the paths are going to be and just keep the plot ticking over.

On days when the weather is like today then I’ll be at home continuing to compile a flower seed list from the Chiltern Seeds Catalogue and a vegetable one from The Organic Gardening Catalogue. More about these another time!

Happy gardening!

  1. Its rained most of the day here too. Sometimes I quite like the rain but for some reason we seem to get all or nothing. Having said that the forecast is better for tomorrow. The garden sounds as if it is coming along really well! Time for some pictures soon I think. Happy Gardening! It certainly seems to be the case for you! Long may it continue. xx


  2. Daffy hello! I like soft rain but today was definitely a big umbrella day! The forecast for here is looking good as well.
    I’m well pleased with what I’ve done so far. I’ll take some photos on Sunday and include them in the next plot entry.
    Thanks! Yes you’re right, and I hope so too. xx
