No Clouds Mummy!

By Angie, Feb 17 2013 08:06PM

It was a lovely day today at the site.


We took the children, dressed in their puddle suits, plus picnic, and worked on the plot for a full four hours.


On plot #37, I was actually able to christen the hoe today for the first time this year as the top of the soil was dry enough to hoe over the bed (although I did remove the hoed weeds in case of wet weather).


Due to recurrent chest infections, I hadn't been able to get the garlic into the border. However, armed with the news that we may have a cold front coming, I decided it was worth a punt and planted them today.


The children and I planted 120 daffs and tulips which had been delayed for the same reason. All the bulbs were nice and fat with most already sprouting.


We will see if we get any results from both!


Meanwhile, Hubby relocated all the autumn raspberries to a dedicated raspberry bed this year. Luckily, we had already prepared the bed ready. We will set up a support structure and fruit frame later.


Such a beautiful day, blue skies, smashing sunset - even the kids commented on it ("where have the clouds gone Mummy"!?!)
