A little scrubbing and Peas will love their new start.

A little scrubbing and Peas will love their new start.

Not the best of weather earlier on today,and plenty more has fallen in the last while.Plans are a little changed for the vegetable garden outer beds this evening. Will not get near the vegetable garden until at least 8 this evening,and i will do some work with the vegetable beds at the lower area then.

Spotted some more old gutter pipes heading for a skip as i passed by earlier this morning.Collected them from behind the wall on the way home this evening and with a quick scrub down they will join the other gutter gang in helping for starting peas etc,and no movement only just to slide them into place.Clean the gutter and ready for use again.One up against the cold,wet weather for gardening.

I will hopefully start more peas at the weekend. I may even germinate them in the greenhouse?
