day off

Day off= my idea of a holiday at the plot!

Posted on Updated on

I have a few days off work this week. So it’s a great excuse to get to my beloved plot!

Sweet peas are in 🙂

Last year I grew them in side, this year I am being tough! 💪 starting them off in the green house (no fancy heating, but I do have a door :)).

I got my chilli peppers in… I plan to start these off back at home.

I have a bit of a headache today so I have retreated home. Not before I tipped one of pots of peppers over 😱. Feeling poorly and gardening don’t really work. I need to make a medical kit for the plot… Pain killers, plasters… Maybe some antiseptic tissues!

But now I need lunch! Just need to move the furry heater (the cat) off my lap (she is making the most off me having a day off work) then back to the plot for stage 2!

Posted on Updated on

So todays a funny day off work and I got some time down the plot first thing.

Cleared out snail city and bed behind the greenhouse.

I weeded the onions a bit, as they had been a but over run. Tomorrow I am investing in an onion hoe and some nice mulch material. Keeping the net on them for now.

I potted up the chillies into big pots! Have them back in the flat… Hopefully they will be happy on the window sills.

I have moved the 2nd set of hoops so we can net another bed a start some more seeds. So much to do!

Also the tree branch we cut earlier this year are shooting…
