Vegetable manure arrives.

Time to feed the veg beds.

Time to feed the veg beds.

Have nothing much to say about the weather,only that i dont think it could be much wetter after the torrential rain.The vegetable garden has plenty of mucky beds apart just for the tunnell.Today at lunch time the first load of cow manure arrived [N7 P3 K6] to supply some of the beds on Saturday.All covered before rain can wash away the goodness.Nothing else was done in the veg garden apart from one brief look in the greenhouse after 5 pm.Late last light i managed to paint the first wall of the seed room and hope to do the same again later.Away until app 10 pm and hope to use up some of the time looking through vegetable notes..I will add the 2 seed room pictures so far later.

John you have been busy, i think using the spare room for growing seeds is a great idea, you must have enough light.

Thank you Dahlia.The spare room comes in perfect for the job.Along with two windows i will also have light in 3 other places in the room.So far it has almost cost me nothing only the time,with the table so far being made up from an old press there,the lighting from old lights i saved.I have some pictures so far of the seed room in my photo album.Thanks again.
