I got loads done yesterday. Call me over-organised, if you want, but I have all my meal plans sorted, all the stuff I need for those meals measured out and ready to take and a shopping list for the fresh stuff too. I'm not shopping at the supermarket there, it's shockingly expensive!
I popped down to the allotment, mowed the grass (about time too) and then concocted a cage frame for the mangetout. We haven't forgotten last year when we turned up one morning to find that all the little shoots that had been growing so bravely had been pecked off by pigeons, horrible things. Not this year!
I didn't put the netting over because it's not needed yet but also because it really needs two pairs of hands.
Then I gave everything a good water which takes ages but has to be done. I'm wondering whether I should invest in a bigger watering can or two.
Here's the cage skeleton! Those corner things are very useful for this sort of thing.
And here's that empty patch, now planted up. I know it still looks a bit bare but wait until the courgettes start to spread and the runners climb up the wigwams! Beside the two wigwams we are planting the cucumber so that will be another wigwam!
Today is packing day. It's a bit complicated as I'm away for the weekend, then off on holiday, then back to the same place for the next weekend. Loadsa packing and sorting to be done so I have today clear for just that and getting everything ready so tomorrow I just have to bung everything in the car and set off. I also need to micro-plan my route as I'm such a worrier!
Time to go and pick the breakfast strawberries (it's such a hard life!) so I will stop waffling and get started. Have a good day and enjoy the lovely weather.
