Santa digging veg.

Santy digs some veg.

Santy digs some veg.

Today i managed to get back on track a little in the veg garden.Compost bin 2 was given a shake up along with some leaves gathered from that area.Markers were put into place for 2010 with crop rotation plans.Up to app 1.30 pm the weather was cool but more important not raining.Though all changed about half an hour later with rain and some wind paying a visit,i was happy with the jobs that were done earlier in the vegetable garden.

When i approached one of the beds i said hello to an old friend,Santa who was digging for some carrots maybe to feed the raindeers.What do you like in the veg garden Santy i asked him.The reply was Hoe,Hoe,Hoe, Merry Gardening and Merry Christmas.

cute :O), probably a bit silly but I would love some outdoor baubles and ornaments to cheer up my garden at the moment. Its a sorry site for being bare and waterlogged.

Ha ha John, very Good. Yes, I love a bit of Christmas in the garden right now too. It makes a big difference in succeeding to cheer it up. I love Christmas, it almost justifies the 'big kids' in us at this time of year.

Thanks everyone.Christmas time in Ireland.Yesterday i had the Christmas music on loud in the garden shed so i could hear it down in the veg garden.If the slugs and snails want to dance i wont interfere.After the dance is over though,so are they.[i hope]
