The above photographs are of my radish & mixed salad leaves which are in the small greenhouse. My hopes of an early harvest appear to be closer.
The danger of self diagnosis resulted in my 'flu' was actually pneumonia. A course of nearly completed steroids & antibiotics seems to have shifted it.
I was eager to get back into the garden but as Mike was on guard duty after my escape yesterday there was no chance. However I was happy to curl up on the sofa with my mothers day gifts which included James Wong's Homegrown Revolution. Ohhhh it is a fab book. Lots of ideas to try something different. Along with chocolates, a cookbook & slippers I had a lovely day. Topped off with Mike cooking a lunch of roast beef etc in all it was very relaxing.
The week before I became ill I received in the post some marigold seeds from Mike Rogers at flightys plot. It was a lovely gesture to receive some home saved seeds from another gardener. I shall be sowing them around my fruit trees. I can't wait for summer now.
Happy sowing & hope you all have a good day!
