On a mission!

Posted on Updated on

This Sunday I went to the plot on a mission. Luckily I had my rain coat; as it rained!! I tucked myself away in the almost dry greenhouse (having a door is handy when it rains!)

I got some bits from the site shop. All set for the days fun.

I checked my greenhouse seedling and some are now emerging… (a few could just be weeds!) Good news as it really hasn’t been very warm, they all got a little drink.

And even more seeds!

My sweet peas look happy, so I removed all but the top 4 leaves (always a bit scared when I do this) I’m sure this is what I did last year and it worked out ok.

Oh dear I didn’t take an after photo… Here is a half way… Nice healthy roots!

I got done new seeds in:
-soy beans πŸ™‚
-cat mint
– poppy California… Although I think these will flower next year
-a packet of lucky dip seeds: the ones I knew were courgette, borage and some other mystery flowers…

I did some inspections… My poor raspberry canes are not doing well. Another one got snapped.

But the first one that got snapped seems to shooting from the broken section?!

So I went home, I watched a bit of ‘kew on a plate’ whilst having my lunch. When I got back it was a bit sunny and having watched Kew on a plate (garlic focused) I was all excited and thought…. lets get it in and growing πŸ™‚ I’m really pleased with now the garlic got a good kick start and some fab roots!

Then the rain really came down, covered with mud… I legged it home!! Never feels like I get enough done, but hopefully I can blitz it over Easter!

And I thought I should share my jolly llama photo of the day! Happy Monday!
