Yesterday being lunar Beltane saw us trying to finish as much in the garden as possible ready for the growing season to really kick in, the rest of the seeds are planted, some things transferred into the garden and a few other trees planted an watered in.
I did buy some poorly plants yesterday that were reduced down very very low 20p in fact but you can see the reason why
I also got three trees reduced to just over £1, admittedly the plum tree may of seen much better days and may end up as fire wood but the silver birch has loads of leaves on it as they are quite robust and twisted willow tree has the odd one or two that reacted well once it has been planted want watered.
On a side note you can tell we have been spending the past few days on the garden as my house needs a darn good clean.
We’re going to have a frost this weekend, it’s just come on the news *le sigh* so I’m happy that we don’t have any delicates planted although the rescue plants may not make it even with being protected.
The seeds that we’ve got in the garden will be ok for an April frost but we may need to protect the seedlings in the green house, it has seen better days and is missing quite a few panes, the back of it that’s close to the fence only has one in lol
We are going to need more containers for planting the seedlings in, and more compost. Everything out of our compost bins have gone into the garden which greatly needed it after seven years of being worked and I am doing the yearly panic of if we will have enough food for the year. I would very much like a larger plot of land, but not an allotment, I didn’t enjoy gardening when I had one, far too many people sticking their noses into what I was doing which was usually followed by “you’re doing it wrong”
The trees are starting to leaf showing their green fuzziness, the birds are singing and it’s great to finically say goodbye to winter.
