Ready to grow.

Ready to grow.

Changed the plan around a little because of a very cold morning that registered -2 here at 7 am.I intended to do some weeding in the tunnell at first light but having to try and hold as much frost off from entering,it was not opened only for a very brief spell afternoon.It may not have been much help then but better than nothing considering the weather.I went on to weed some of the bottom beds in the veg garden as planned with the help of a hot cup of tea and then flew into the seed room to add some of the final touches such as charts being hung along with some small tables added.Ready now for some waterproff covering for the tables which will be collected tomorrow.Some of the trays of saved seeds will be taken in from the garden shed tomorrow evening.One up against the weather.It did not win at this job as it has done during the year leaving the traces of leaf spot etc in the veg garden.Time to get ready for my new seed visitors [At last].

Wont matter what the weather trows at you John, you will always have something to do with a set up like that. Were you ever in the army? looks like an operations room before the attack starts. Once again, well done.

I will just echo what everyone else has said. What a wonderful asset to have a room in the house given over to gardening. My daughter has recently vacated her bedroom during the week as she's at college and we playfully refer to it as the orchid room : )

Thank you all so much.I feel Santy came earlie to me and left me off a room im that happy.No more out to the greenhouse during the night.For many a year i have always spent a few hours in the greenhouse on Christmas day.Now i can be almost the whole day between the two places.

You are lucky to have that space. My own daughter moved out to an apartment a couple of months ago and my youngest daughter took over her room, as it was bigger. So now I have the boxroom as a spare room.Watch this space. Ha ha.
