Its a terrible shock for me that April is upon us already. I have an awful lot of seeds that I must get into pots/the ground this month. I am Very grateful that this year I will have the space to grow even more vegetables and one of those vegetables that I am really looking forward to growing and then eating straight off the plot is sweetcorn.
This is plot 1, there is quite a lot in here already, asparagus, carrots, parsnips, beetroot, various onions both Japanese and main crop, shallots, garlic, globe artichokes, potatoes, celery, raspberries, blackcurrants, strawberries, blue berries, rhubarb, purple sprouting, various herbs and a cherry tree.
This is plot 2, hubby and son no.1 are over half way on clearing it. There is nothing in here, but there will be I just need a little time and a willing husband to plant my seeds/plants for me.
There are peas, sweet peas, various cabbages, purple sprouting, cauliflower, brocolli, tomatoes, leeks, lettuces and brussel sprouts all happily sprouting in my greenhouse. The mice have found the peas and we have the found the mouse traps. The mice are now currently getting fat on chocolate, which they like and have found out how to remove from the mouse traps without setting them off, still at least they are not eating my peas.
The met office predicts rain for the next week, I hope in between showers and we do so need this rain I can walk up to the plot to play with seeds, compost and pots for an hour a day. You know I’m happiest when I’m playing with mud.
