Sunday was another great day for getting out into the garden, so that was just what I did. Although I didn’t do a lot, per se. I did get to start a few things off.
I started off my peas for a start. I know you generally need to start them in situ… But the bed isn’t full of soil yet so I’m starting them in a pot and I will transfer them in once they sprout.
I put them in those small pots because if we get a cold snap I can put a cloche over the top to protect them.
I then found a packet of Sunflower seeds I got last year but forgot about. So I planted them in threes towards the back, along the border by the fence.
You will note that this is an edible plant. I didn’t realise you could use them as salad greens?!
The last set of seeds I put down was the Bee mix I got from the BBCT for my Birthday late last year. It’s a mixed bag of who knows what.
The instructions were to just scatter and gently rake them in. So that is what I did. I barely used any of the seed as they only went in the corner plot with the clover and chives.
And that was really all I did other than a little weeding (The cleavers are starting to show themselves again!) and a look at what was next to open up.
Speaking of opening up.
I really doubt I will get anything for a few years, if ever, but it’s a nice plant to have a go at making into a Bonsai.
Even if that fails I have lost nothing. It came out of one of the wife’s apples!
And finally… My Cherry is definitely doing something. I don’t know if they are blossom buds or simply leaves?.. But it’s doing something!
