Good morning! Well, here we are, pretty much halfway through March already. Where on earth is the time going?
These weren't a gift, I bought them on Saturday to treat myself.
As expected, yesterday's morning sunshine turned into afternoon and evening rain. Today is supposed to be nice and sunny this morning and fine and cloudy this afternoon.
I had a lovely day yesterday. After a lazy morning getting the seed potatoes into trays for sprouting (they are now in the shed where they will stay for a while) I worked out the schedule for sowing and planting,
I'm going to save any plastic egg boxes I get for a while - all the other potatoes are crammed into another tray but these boxes keep them apart really nicely. Not a new idea, of course, just new to me!
I pootled over to Beth's, stopping off at Dave's on the way to drop off his birthday present. Beth had made a lovely noodle and veg dinner and the rhubarb and strawberry crumble went down a treat. I've been a bit reluctant to go to hers for a meal because her cooker had broken and it would have been difficult for her to organise, but she now has a lovely new one so we might very well be alternating. My turn next week, anyway, and Alex has requested lamb.
Today the diary is empty. I will definitely be down the allotment in the morning to cut the flower bed, dig it over and hoe down any adventurous weeds anywhere else. I think I might also take a trip to a garden centre to get some plastic lawn edging and give it a go to mark and keep the edges of the new bed as we don't have any proper wood edging thingies. Worth a try anyway.
(I really haven't explained that very well, have I?)
In the afternoon, I might start on some of the seed sowing, seeing as I bought a bag of compost on Saturday morning.
I'm looking forward to a day in the fresh air, anyway.
What are your plans? xx
