Tuesday

Good morning!  It was jolly cold in the wind yesterday, wasn't it?  I was (yet again) thankful for central heating.

I spent some time online with my wonderful techy friend, Eddie, yesterday afternoon while he took me through finding and adding videos from mobile and camera to Facebook.
I thought I'd give it a go in here too, just to see if I can.  It's very rough; I only took it so we would have something to 'play with', so to speak.

Fingers crossed.
It's the garden, by the way.

I had a very quiet day with just one excitement.  The replacement tomatoes turned up and I opened the package with great trepidation.  Amazingly, all six little plants were still alive and seem to be holding their own.  Now I have TOO MANY tomatoes, what with the seeds as well.  Oh, well - gifts for the neighbours and more for the allotment!
Actually, can you have too many tomatoes?

I got stuck into the washing, drying (a great drying day!) and ironing and I am happy to say I now have an empty ironing basket.

Today is a bit busier.  I have the SW Zoom meeting first and then, an hour later, a chat with Chris over the road.  I think I might then pop down to the allotment just to check that all is well and deal with any cheeky weeds.

SO - must get going and fingers crossed the video link works!
Have a great day.  xx

Edit - I sent this on Monday evening by mistake - ooops!

  2. I think I may have planted too many tomatoes as well :)
    It's lovely to see the full view of your garden. X

    1. < grin > One less today as the very smallest of the newbies hasn't survived the night. I'm not so fussed now and won't be complaining about that - the others will be OK and that's good.

  3. I don't think it's possible to have too many tomatoes! Your garden is looking good. I like the raised beds.

    You'll be pleased to hear that ALW's offering for this weekend is Cats.

  4. I really like your raised beds. Are they made of bricks?
    Your garden is lovely. 😊

    1. Yes, they are. I really wanted a brick wall - I love a walled garden - but that was going to be way too costly so I compromised and I'm really glad I did. It's a small garden (as you can see) but I wanted it to be contained and easy to manage. This was in the days when I was working all the hours I had as a teacher and, for me then, it worked like a dream. Nowe, I'd do it differently and I would have less paving and more garden including a vegetable patch beside the shed.
      Maybe, one day, when the wind is in the right direction and my boat comes sailing into harbour, I will consider a remake but for now, I am very happy with what I already have.
      And, of course, there's the sllotment.
      I really am very lucky.

  5. I thought I had already read your post for today (Monday) still better early than never as they say!
    What a lovely garden you have and I can hear the birds twittering on the video.x

      I'm not quite brave enough to do a vocal commentary - yet - but birds are better.
      I love my little 'estate'!. I know it is small and a bit concrete but what are containers for and it isn't too hard to manage. As I get older, that becomes increasingly important.
      And I have a few plans for the future.

  6. I missed your entry yesterday but now saw that you're asking about Irises. the only thing I know is that the rhizomes do not like to get really wet and can rot and that they need their tops exposed to the sun to keep them dry. We had such a long period of rain since before Christmas, so that might be the reason why they are failing. Neither do they like to be shaded by other plants.

    I think you did really well with your first video and look forward to seeing more!!

    1. That could be so, thanks very much. I'll see what happens next Spring, I think. Thankfully, they are not too hard to get hold of. :-)

  7. Thank you for showing us your garden Joy. It looks lovely and I do like your seat. I like gardens with resting and viewing places, gardens should be places we enjoy for some of the time and not always somewhere we have to be doing x

    1. Thanks, Lyn. I think the same. Although quite a lot of the 'doing' is fun too.
