Ready, steady, go!
I have relocated some photos from last year as I didn't have my camera with me this morning. Which is a pity really with the state I was getting myself in.
Mike had very kindly left the seeds compost behind the black bin which is kept by the side gate. Muggins here decided she would pop out with pj's, dressing gown & white slippers on her feet. Forgetting the weight of seed compost bags I struggled into the house with it, it also gave the neighbours who were on their way to work or dog walking something to laugh about I can tell you. Especially when I nearly tipped myself backwards by trying to grab the compost & ending up on the soil border not the path!!
Anyway to make it easier for myself I thought I would take a chance & work in the hall. Ahem, not a good idea with a mucky gardener like me, I carefully swept up the compost remains on the floor & thanked god numerous times for us to have the foresight of a wooden floor in the hall & Mike being to far away in work to catch me.
My windowsill propagator is up & running, I haven't sown anything yet as I am leaving the compost to warm up a bit first. Hopefully I shall stick some seeds in on Sunday.
The sweet peas like a long root run allegedly, I say this as I make sure I grow any legume in toilet roll innards or deeper pots to save on root disturbance. However I have bought sweet pea seedlings in normal plant pots from a garden centre before now & they grew like topsy!
Well that's me making a start & do you know, I feel all the better for it.! I would also like to point out that the photograph of the propagator - the murky bit you see behind it isn't the state of my window, it is the field at the back of my garden. I'm not completely lacks you know! Enjoy your day
