to start planting and sowing but I’m going to wait another week or so to let the ground continue to dry out and warm up.
Monday morning was cool and overcast which I found ideal when I emptied out the compost heap. Fifteen barrow loads were spread over the the three areas where I’m growing vegetables. It’s a worthwhile job but I’m thankful that I only have to do it once a year. A bonus this time was finding the pair of good secateurs which I lost back in the summer. I cleaned them up then sprayed liberally with WD-40, and they still work fine. Click on the picture and you’ll see them above the fork handle just after I’d found them.
The crocuses are still looking good with this container of purple ones,
and in the long planter it’s interesting to see how white the Blue Pearl are now they’re fully open, and have looked really good with the Cream Beauty.
Of all the photos that I’ve taken of the crocuses I think that this is one of the best.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
