which was almost springlike are most welcome at this time of year, especially as it’s been dull and windy recently.
For the first time this year I spent all morning working on the plot, making a start on the long list of things that I’ll be doing over the coming weeks.
I’d only been there a few minutes when the robins arrived to say hello, they then constantly came and went. I think that they were checking to see if I was going to empty the compost bin, which I didn’t, and it really was so pleasing to see them both!
The first thing I did was to lift the few leeks which I’d grown on from plants that plot neighbour Brian kindly gave me. Size wise the biggest one is about an inch diameter and four inches long. This year I’m having a go at growing my own from seed with the variety Ardea Organically sourced.
Last year I moved my Jerusalem artichokes from the bottom south-east corner to the opposite end. Inevitiably I missed some so I dug these up to replant with the others.
The area I’m moving the raspberries to was lightly forked over, and I then did some general tidying up filling an empty compost bag.
The film Broken Arrow (1950), starring my favourite actor James Stewart, is being shown on Channel 4 at 12.20 pm today. It’s a miserably wet day out so I’ll be settling down to an early lunch whilst watching this classic Western.
Have a good weekend!
