After a whole week of non stop rain it’s good to have a fine day at last. Despite the rain Ian took some time of work and got 2 loads of mushroom compost for the new / recycled garden beds. I ordered a few packets of seeds from Kings Seeds and was ready to plant them today. Cameron was very keen to help, we had bought him some gardening gloves a couple of weeks ago.
He stayed to help put in broad beans and peas before he got bored and wandered off
Here’s the 3 beds that are now planted / growing…
the back one has broad beans, peas, snow peas and some golden beetroot seeds, all planted today, the middle one, the garlic and shallots planted a few weeks ago which have sprouted, a few wild spring onions the Ian transplanted in, and a few spring onion seeds that I put in today. The closest bed has lettuce (mesculan mix), striped beetroot (chioggia), radishes, carrots (paris globe), beetroot (red) and carrots (big ones can’t remember they type), all planted today. Fingers crossed for good sprouting and no more frosts!
The herb garden is growing well, some of the outside stems of the Italian Parsley are a bit sad, but I’ll cut them off once the new growth is a bit more established.
Now that I’ve gardened I’m going to do a bit of sewing. Ian’s out buidling some more fences so we can move the sheep again.
