There has been plenty of rain, and wind, during the past week so the ground is now too soggy to do any plotting. Not that there’s much to do at present as all the compost that I dug out and sieved has been spread over the three vegetable patches. I’m all ready to start planting and sowing but I won’t do that until late March, weather permitting, when it will be lighter and warmer.
Between now and then I’ve got to check and sort through all the bamboo canes, with most of the eight foot ones needing replacing. I’ll also be digging out my own compost heap, which I’ve not done for a couple of years.
The yellow crocuses Romance aren’t far off starting to flower, and hopefully they’ll do better than the earlier white Snow Bunting.
The tulips are starting to show, both the red Toronto which are in the ground and yellow Bellona in a container.
It was good to see a pair of robins on the plot one morning.
Next week is looking quite reasonable weather-wise remaining dry, mild and sunny.
Have a good week!
