Gardening…. over the winter I had no heart for it.
Last year I caught the gardening bug, thought I might have lost it, but no, I loved spending an hour in the greenhouse today.
Firstly clearing the bench.
Unwrapping Sweetpeas seedlings from Sarah Raven.
Due to circumstances I’m late starting this year, so indulged in a 30% off offer to buy some ready made.
As it were.
Popping two in a pot.
I have no idea if I do things “correctly” in the garden, I just do what feels right.
Seems to work most of the time.
Also planted some seeds we kept from last years crop.
Two months late starting, but as Northumberland is a month behind southern gardens I’m only a month behind.
It was so windy this afternoon I was literally holding the greenhouse in place. You can see its come away from the base.
Thank goodness I have extra bracing poles and large and strong benches in there.
It was all a little scary.
Over the years all the glass has blown out and been replaced with plastic.
You’d think being in the valley we’d be sheltered?
Not a chance, that wind comes straight of Cheviot and through my garden.
