messy play

By Heather 10 years ago

well, i *was* organised before my little helper decided to muck in -- still, the seasons seem so mixed up at the moment it may not hurt to just throw some seeds toward my raised beds and wait and see....

sunflowering

By Heather 10 years ago

i think i am coming out of hibernation. i've been out round the garden having a nose at the various tiny shoots and i'm now allowing myself to believe that the last of the snow -- well, i don't want to tempt fate!
the end of winter means unearthing the random pack of seeds i bought as a wiggly bargain sometime when spring seemed very remote indeed. i've taken a new tack this year and decided that whatever i got in the pack, i would grow. seems like i still don't have much work till april apart from general pottering and repairing a collapsed fence unless the uk is struck by a heat wave. worse, i'm harbouring a strong desire to grow pumpkins and squash and they don't go in for ages yet!
sunflowers are on the list this year too -- my jerusalem artichokes in pure home compost reached stupendous heights last year so i'm thinking of a skyful of yellow.

which makes a nice change from grey.
