Vegetable jobs in the afternoon.

27 January 2010 18:20:51
Today,just after 1pm i managed to get to attack the vegetable beds earlier than expected.The weather was good for garden jobs.Some of the raised beds are doing well after all the poor weather we have been having.With the help of the wheelbarrow i managed to put the finishing touches to one of the cabbage rows.Compost was checked on again with the beds to make sure all would be fit to grow well.The cabbages been used will be made up of earlie survivors from the past bad weather spell.Some look a little under the weather,but others not to bad with some needing a little help on.Tomorrow evening they will be moved into the area where cabbages will be left until harvesting.I will get a picture for my journal tomorrow evening,along with types used if at all possible.Very little will get done in either the seed room or the greenhouse this evening.Wednesday evening is cards night for a few hours..

glad the day was good enough for you to get that done, it has turned out a drizzly evening here now.

You must have got decent weather - it would skin a cat around here today.

Thanks you everyone.

Yet again no luck last night at the cards.Not to worry though,the sun is coming with spring on the way.Some we will all win against the poor weather.

Good luck on the €30 winnings Clara.
