Apart from yesterday which was cool, wet and windy I was on the plot every day last week. As always when I get there I have a look round to see that it’s all okay then top up the two ponds. One morning I gave the shed, pallet patio and compost bin a coat of Woodland Green wood preserver. Since planting out the first early potatoes and onion sets and sowing some broad beans nearly three weeks ago I’d also been looking for signs of growth last week but to no avail up to Friday.
This morning however it was a different story, much to my relief, with potato foliage ( as shown), onions and broad beans just appearing.
I started sowing flower seeds today including sweet peas, pot marigolds and love-in-a-mist. With the week ahead looking dry and warm I’ll be sowing lots more including sunflowers, nasturtiums and California poppies. I’ll also be planting the dahlias and gladioli.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
