…Not that it matters, just get on with it.
Sometimes you just don’t feel like doing something. Not sure why today but I’m just not feeling it. I got out of bed late, the wife had already left for work and the minion was soon to be heading out before I finally crawled my arse out of my pit. Something largely unheard of.
I went outside to a fairly dull day and got a few jobs done but I didn’t stay out long. Even the cat came back in of her own accord. I guess we’re both having a case of the blues?
Anyway… I trimmed up the Aquilegia as I said I would yesterday. Looking in my photo album I was a little surprised how quickly it had fallen off. In a few weeks it will be back, trust me! B-)
I also tidied up the finishing Daffies. I can’t believe so many still have green stems on them. O.o
And finally the veg plot. A couple of issues have come to light…
First off… The placement of the potatoes was a mistake. I didn’t think they would be THAT big and they have totally blocked the light to the peas behind them. I’m thinking that next time they could go up against the fence. That way they won’t block the light to anything and most of that soil is wasted anyway. The other possibility is to put the peas in front of the potatoes?
I also just realised that I have 4 types of Allium in that picture. Onions, spring onions, garlic and the ornamental ones (that I managed to miss… Because I am an idiot!) >.<
Maybe I should get some chives planted in there to break up the monotony… *ahem* B-)
On a serious note I think having so many of the same species together may be a mistake. Maybe next year I will try and break up the lines and put some crops between them as a part of companion planting. If I try carrots again next year they will DEFINITELY be put between lines as carrot fly doesn’t like onions.
Look… A man can dream, alright?! B-)
Ok… I screwed up…. I managed to post this then made the mistake of deleting the posts it generates. So, because WordPress doesn’t allow you to repost things I had to make a totally new copypasta post.
I think I am done with today. *sigh* It’s a shame I don’t drink. >.>
