Thought I would post about a few random things.
This is all of the plant pots which came my way for 99p. Chuffed to bits I have sooo many and that they were all clean barring a couple.
I was in the Poly House this morning and took this photo across the fields at the back of the house.
Didn't need a coat and hardly needed my jumper. I was having a bit of a tidy up re the above but I have now gone off piste regarding my sowing and growing plan! Today I have sown these seeds:
two trays of spring onions
one of Gardener's Delight toms
one including sweet peppers and piquant peppers
The trays are mainly from when I buy chicken breasts; they are a great size so I just pierce some holes in the bottom of them for a bit of drainage.
I have put them in the window sill in the top kitchen and will cover them with something to help the germination process when I get a minute. This window gets quite a lot of sun whilst it is still a little too cool to put them in the conservatory, although it is a lovely day today and quite mild and dry. Yay!
I also emptied the compost that was in the fixed drainpipe in the Poly House. I have put this at the end of the main veg patch as I'm going to add it to this area when I do some digging over; I'm always a bit unsure about whether or not you should re-use compost.
Ah, yesterday two lots of my seed potatoes arrived from Thompson & Morgan,
as you can see they are Maris Piper and Arran Pilot. I need to get them chitting soon, probably this month rather than next.
This is funny. Jon and I love the Rayburn and he decided to have 10 minutes the other night!
Following on from that photo this one is a little self indulgent as it shows just what the Rayburn is all about; fresh bread, sausage casserole tea for tonight and a brew!
