The hedge is finished!
Finished! I have finished planting the hedge...phew! My back aches, and my knees are sore, but it is done. Now I have to watch and wait and keep it well watered.
I also bought my spuds for the allotment. I got Kestrel, Charlotte and Desiree. I got 3 kg of each. This is overkill on the Kestrel and Charlotte, but I like to give them away to friends so it'll be ok.
Tomorrow I'll set them to chit.
Whilst in Kent last weekend I visited Canterbury Wholefoods and spent a lot on things I can't get here. One thing I am really enjoying was the set of Permaculture Magazines...all the 2007 issues. I love that magazine and really should subscribe...perhaps I will. There are lots of good ideas in there that will hopefully help me to be more productive as well as caring for the bit of the earth I have responsibility for. (Sobering thought!)
Tomorrow will be a bit cold so I'll do house jobs, then Friday I will carry on re-organising the tunnel beds and get the staging set up ready for my spring seed planting marathon which I will be able to start when we return from our Winter Sun break in Cyprus (3rd to 13th Feb). We hate to leave the Island here in summer..it is great here for 8 months, and I have my plot, garden and greenhouse to look after...so we always go about now for a bit of winter sun. We'll hire a car there but hope not to do too much gadding about. I will be happy just to wander about peering over fences at people's veg gardens and allotments. I have some photos of veg gardens taken abroad over the years...I like them better than beach shots as holiday mementos.
I have spent a while this week reading all the garden blogs I subscribe to, and am gradually getting into my spring gardening mode. It is so inspiring reading everyone's experiences....I am so glad you all post on your blogs...thanks!
