I spent the morning clearing the veg patch and generally tidying up the garden a bit. I did neglect the garden last year as my time was taken up with so many different committees. Thankfully towards the end of 2011 I decided to give all that up and what a difference it’s made; I now have more spare time to do things I want to do! So this morning’s priority was to clear the garden, small it may be but it took about four hours to make it look a bit more respectable. I was far too ashamed to show you the before photo, last year’s tomato plants still stuck in their grow bags! Now it’s looking better although the photo taken in the rain at 3:30pm it looks rather bleak.
The T&M seed catalogue arrived yesterday which gave me a push to get out there. It was great digging in the New Year with thoughts of what could be grown differently this year. The earth is dark and was so easy to dig almost no digging required. So now from the comfort of a warm kitchen I can look forward to another year of growing a small amount of veg (my fifth year).
