hi everyone weather has broke a bit since my last entry, great weather for those anoying weeds, i mustnt have mulched heavy enough because the little buggers are coming through. loking into sorting out a compost heap for next year as it would cost me a fortune in mulching materials. i bought some seeds and some plants today "aquilegia" and more chrysantemum. i have gone mad into herbs and got basil, thyme, rosmary, oregano. hope to turn my patio into a herb and tall plant paradice will post photos as soon as i have it done, spent the evening giving a second coat of paint "red cedar" to my picnic table and one of two trelisis, didnt realise how anoying painting a trelis could be so many nuks and cranies. i got a teracota garden clock and thermonetor in aldi, they are so cute. need to start hardening off stuff soon running out of space again. sow beetroot spring onion and peppers and thyme yesturday and first batch of chrysantemums. i was disgusted today at aldi, a full trolley of bedding plants unsuitable for sale but still out there, looked like they hadnt been watered in a week, litterly dead. while i was at horkans today, one of the girls said to me do you ever actully sit down, i dont except at nite, i am always up to something and when i am sitting i am watching garden programs or looking up one of my books.my 10 yr old daughter told me i am bonkers about gardening, that is true, any spare money i have goes on the garden. cant resist a plant of some sort. puts a spring in my step. well bye for now and happy gardening even if it is in the rain.
