Hopefully all the plot prep pays of this weekend.
–Sweet peas have gone down to the plot and in the greenhouse.
-And the potatoes have all gone in. Thanks to some help from Mr. 🙂
We dug untill the sunset (although we only started at 5.30). Victory at last.

Break time on Saturday… And I came equiped with crisps and tea! I had a nice sit in my comfy chair in the greenhouse listening to the birds sing!
I have been digging the future potato bed….again. Removing the endless rubble. The bit I dug looked beautiful 🙂 hopefully it will be worth the hard work, with no funny shaped potatoes. This is my first year using this bed for potatoes. I have to say I’m very inspired by my plot neighbour. Since our first year he has been full of encouragement. He must have come down during last week, as I haven’t seen him this year. He is a stealth gardener! I don’t know how he does it. But it goes from a bit weedy to beautiful fine soil within days… I try to console myself that he has had the plot for a long time. So oneday mine might be like that too!
I took a mini break for the hard digging. And I peered into my caged outdoor seeds. I have been planning to dig this over again as the seeds didn’t take.
However. I peered closer (I got down to ground level, looking I’m sure like a nut case) And I spotted little shoots of green!! So I had tidy up… And hey presto we have baby spring onions!!
I can be very impatient with outside seeds. And this just reminds me to sit tight and wait sometimes! If I had time last week, I would have dug over. Lucky escape for these guys!
And this is my last few chilli seeds coming up (in mini prop at the flat) another story of patience!
I took my friend down to see the plot on Friday and we got treated to this beautiful sunset!
We got some grow bags and a few extra seeds! Now back to reality!
