Happy New Year


Well another year is over and I am looking forward to sowing some seeds for this year. I have already bought most of my seeds from the sales at the end of the summer. I haven't actually planned everything as I need to add another little raised bed soon. I had planned to do it in September but then got busy and didn't get round to doing it!

I managed to dig over the veg plot a few days before Christmas and I am glad I did as it was a good excuse to relax and forget all the things you should be rushing around doing at that time of year. It looks quite empty now apart from some spinach and leeks (which are not very big yet!)

I've entered some competitions on the BBC Gardening web site today in the hope that maybe I might win something, well someone has to!

I was lucky to receive some gardening gifts for Christmas presents and these will come in handy this year. My sister Danielle bought me a wonderful trug and I am looking forward to using it in the warmer months. My friend Debbie at work bought me a lovely set including a gardening apron and some brass plant labels which she knew I needed. Paula bought me a wicked pair of Fat Face Yetti slippers, they are so warm I don't want to take them off!

Anyway better get on and finish the roast lamb dinner (with home grown Rosemary).

Happy New Year to you all.
