A journal year in the garden and a Happy New Year.

Soon it will be in full colour again.
Through the year we have had plenty of ups and downs in the garden.Earlier in the year the weather gave a terrible blow in the form of some serious frost.
After a few months on the recovery lists for some of the plants the sunshine returned.Later on in the year with some of them in the form of a few prizes in the vegetable area at the local show,but also giving a supply of home grown food that brought good meals to our table.Much appreciated.
Rain paid a visit at times and diseases were in the air,but we put up with them.Then near the end of the year we were given a very,very,severe attack of snow,and ice which left its own trademark with damage. I will say no more about that.
Over the weekend i will spend an hour or so looking back over past notes kept here down the years and compare the outcome,with this years events.Maybe i might even get to pluck from them,some badly needed buckets of sunshine for 2011.
Who knows i might try out some stop signs at the garden gate during the summer to maybe banish away the garden pests and diseases,along with bad weather,all of which caused the need to destroy some of the vegetables that had been doing fine for months of growth before the weather attack.
Happy New Year to all my garden.ie friends and good luck with all your plans for 2011.Bring on the sunshine,we want to sow and grow.
