What a difference a few days make. Last week the garden was still looking dreary and all of a sudden as if by magic green shoots and new life everywhere! I planted the three bays along near the fence on Saturday then it rained so great timing.
The marigold seeds sowed on April 1st germinated by the 4th on the dining room window, that was quick! The trays in the pop-up plastic greenhouse haven't emerged so I might bring them in for a week but then you have to acclimatise them later on. Still time so maybe I'll leave them until the weekend.
Jobs to do this week - Pot on tomato plants now they have 2 true leaves, buy a new pop up greenhouse, canes for runner beans, start courgette and beans. Waiting for my Thompson and Morgan seed delivery with some of these seeds! Lots to do at this time of year. I'm also planning a giveaway for this month. I've started getting the prize together, more news soon.
I'm still waiting for news of my RHS Chelsea Flower Show press pass - good things come to those that wait (hopefully!)
Let's have a walk around my small garden, pictures taken on Saturday evening
