The multi-purpose of gardening.
Saturday has on sent more changing weather.No complaints about today.I was up at first light to go down to attack the veg garden and on the way i noticed the temp reading at-4.Frost may have been in the air but over all a nice day to do some vegetable gardening jobs here.Started to work on some of the covered beds and by 11 am it was a quick cuppa and down to the local Coop to collect some more seeds and to order some multi-purpose compost.On the way out of the shop i bumped into a gentleman who noticed the seeds in my hand.You wont be sowing them to early now was what i heard.A quick grin and spoke outside the Coop door for at least an hour about veg growing.It is always great to hear other peoples ideas and im always glad to do so.Having finished chatting and moving on i returned to the veg garden later than expected.It was enjoyable to hear the ways from a gardener touching 70 years of age today.Tomorrow i hope to spend a few hours in the greenhouse and to organise a few more pots,trays etc for use in a short while.
The compost was delivered this evening to my place just before 5pm.I noticed a lady walking her dog by the house and mentioned in to me as i was standing alongside the compost,[you must be expecting lovely spring weather soon when i see those bags [compost].Sure said i in reply back,and every gardener in Ireland will also be expecting that good weather.
