Fitting it all in

Hello again, as usual everything is happening at once and there is not enough time to get everything done that I would like.  

I managed to clean out the girls and weed the vegetable patch and the strawberry bed between the showers we had yesterday. 

I had a quick scout about the garden to see how things had been doing since they had been left pretty much to their own devices. 

I have a few strawberries that are on the turn and a lot of blue berries are on the bushes. The swede is growing well and the fennel has emerged. 

We should get a handful of broad beans, the peas are flowering and flourishing. The leeks are going good, the onions are swelling. 

The only down side is the rhubarb it really did not appreciate the move. Hopefully next year it will be back to good growth. I will not take any from it this year and just let all the goodness go back into the roots. 

There are no photos as I have left the camera at the shop. Speaking of the shop it is all starting to come together. The tearoom will be opening this weekend, I have quite a few local crafter's who have their hand made products for sale in the shop and also the pre-loved furniture. The craft workshops are starting next month  and finally I managed to build a website

Well that is all my news, I will hopefully get some photos for you in the next couple of days. Until next time x

A Flying visit....

Hey ho one and all I am still about albeit just a quick post. What wonderful weather we have been having however it is soon to be over. Come tomorrow the rain is on it's way again, my butts are empty so need a refill.

Nothing went to plan last week so very little gardening got done. I did manage to get out into the front garden yesterday and tackled the weeds that had squatted in the flower beds. There were also lots of new plants that had grown due to the self seeding flowers that I had sown last year. Looking forward to some sort of floral display.

The hens have been up to their usual mischief, I let them out yesterday whilst I tended the front garden and two hours later they had emptied out the soil from the planter by the back door!

Lots of changes are taking place down at Wigglywoo's Craft Emporium the kitchen is going in this week ready to serve tea and cake!

I hope you are all enjoy spending some time out in your gardens, I have decided to make no plans but rather be more spontaneous! Until next time x

Running out of time...

I am well and truly behind on the seed sowing and have empty pots standing where full ones should be. The large raised bed remains empty and forlorn but the girls are enjoying having a rummage in the soil where as it usually has canes and netting over to keep them out.

So far what has been sown appears to be doing quite well

The first strawberries are forming

When I get in from work tomorrow I am hoping to get the front garden weeded (it looks awful!) and sow some seeds. I am not sure what yet but will rummage in the seed box to see what can be sown now.

The girls have been enjoying their freedom today, dust bathing and digging and scrubbing around for grubs. When they have had enough they all come to the back door and Bell and Dory will often come into the kitchen looking for their seed box which is on the shelf just inside the back door and stand there and peck it.

waiting at the door
The sun has been shinning the past few days and the warmth has been most welcome. I just hope it is here to stay for a few more weeks.

Well that is it from me for now, I hope you have all been enjoying your gardens, until next time x
