Tables being prepared.

Tables being prepared.

No frost this morning and looking like a cloudy dull day.Could be worse.Looks good weather for gardening.In an hour or two i hope to see about moving the trays of seed potatoes to another room.All trays are chitting well.Room will be needed at the lower end of the seed room in a short while [next few days] to allow some more of the seedling trays be moved on [pricked out] when the time comes.Some time will also be spent in the tunnel doing some light jobs like giving the table a tidy up etc.Not much more will happen out in the vegetable garden today after that.Garden study from then on in the house.

Is that plastic on the floor under your trays? Do yo find it works well to collect stray water?

You are making use of your time well. You will catch up with the heavier tasks eventually.

Underneath them Rachel i have used old compost bags that have been dis,and cut to size.Underneath them first the tables have also been given a similar clean down.It works well for me here with stray water.Never to much will fall,dipped in trays first and left to drain.The first move from the start was that the floor covering be suitable to mop out just to be on the safe side.
