Dawn sent me some oca
they look a cross between bugs and potato
These already have nice growth on
They should be planted in pots undercover and put out in May, I choose to plant them in potato sacks today. The flowers are very pretty, so they are here behind the trellis by the 1st greenhouse, we should be able to see them growing from the front of the garden. Which is another good use of an awkward small space.
Hubby brought me a magazine,
this one is always my favourite,
I can not remember the last time I got a magazine,
so it's a real treat for me
The 5th stage of Maryse SAL 215 arrived in my in box today
I pottered until about 3ish, after the overnight rain, the sun came out and it was lovely and warm. My cucumbers finally grew, I have three seedlings in small pots. I put some sweet pea's with my climbing French beans, thanks Pam for the tip. Our three tomato plants are out, this year they are growing in a huge pot on the decking, they are looking good this morning.
I also had time to sort my shed, I now have room to move about, everything I stored over winter is now being used in the garden.
We had one problem, the rain butt was not sitting properly on it's raised platform, we had to empty the water out, place a paving slab underneath it, which gave it a flat platform, the rain we had last night has already collected in the butt.
We sent out for a pizza last night, very naughty for the waist line, but it was a rare treat.
Today I have an eye test, so we will pop into town and then on to B&Q for another can of primer for the garden table and chairs, nothing else planned, it's down to the weather, I am happy to potter around the plot for the afternoon.
