Another weekend shot where does the time go - never seems to be enough hours in the day - We spent the afternoon in the poly tunnell today as we had a lot of rain thunder and lovely sunshine all mixed up together. Transplanted some of the purple sprouting broccli and the cauliflowers. Sowed second sowing of beetroot and radishes. First leaf salad ready to pick lovely flavour and onions doing really well. Staked Peas and weeded carrots. Set another sowing of leeks as the first lot not doing very well. Gerry spent the afternoon putting in the new middle bed in the tunnell this is where the tomatoes will go once they are ready to put out in approx 10 days (well I will have no choice as we have communion Saturday week and I need to clear the dining room table!!) I planted on the last of the tomoatoes - I have in total for the record the following
Max Tomatoes (6) Nebraska Wedding Tomato (9) Marglobe Tomato (6) Green Zebra Tomato (8) Black from Tula tomato (3) Garden Pearl Tomato (8) All of the above I got from Seed courtesy of Dave and I have also got 15 moneymaker that came free in a magazine so let's hope I don't mess it up from here
Yesterday was some necessary shopping but also found time to go to the garden centre this was in Enniskillen and I had never been before - it was very lively and lots of stuff squeezed into a relatively small place very impressed and I am sure it will not be the last time. I got two pieries to put in the pots where the Bay perished over Winter. I got a lovely varigated Jacob''s ladder and a new Virbinuim maple like leaves - (can't think of the name) I also got a couple of flashing light diantius. When I got home I planted out some cabbage (red and green) in the back garden and some broad beans.
We are almost finished the first pond - it would have been finished today if it were not for the weather - we had hoped to have them completely finished for the first communion but we had no idea the magnitud of the project we were taking on.
Happy Gardening to all for the week ahead
