Getting there bit by bit.

Washing time.

Washing time.

Had my usual fast walk down to the vegetable garden just after 7 am and to see if i might spot something to think about that needs doing.The weather held up well for today after the rainfall we had.

From 3 pm i managed to shift compost to some more of the vegetable beds,and also got to give the bamboo cane ends a dip in a light disinfectant to kill off any of the garden baddies resting in them to attack in summer.They were dried off and left until needed.The washing of some of the buckets,tubs etc,will have to wait until another evening.Wednesday night  as usual,is for the card games from 8pm to 10 pm.Time to get cleaned up and throw a real quick eye into the seedroom.

No doubt, they will be the SEEDS OF SUCCESS! Good luck with the game, John.
