A lovely blue sky and sunshine today but still on the cold side. Managed to spend some time in the garden yesterday sieving wood ash. Not the best time to do it as it was quite windy. Got it done and some is now on the plants in the garden that needed it.
Our soil is slightly alkaline and some plants, like my blueberry and raspberry need a slightly more acidic soil. Wonder if some woodland soil from up the woods as a mulch might work?. Any ideas? Last year the autumn raspberries looked very yellow and I had to spray them (and my hydrangeas) with some special food.
Hubby still needs to produce a few more snowdrop sticks. The miniature daffodils are poking through now and methinks more yellow sticks might also be needed.
If it warms up later today and next week (apparently Tuesday is going to be v. warm), I will start sieving the compost bin and bag it up for later use.
I may not be posting everyday on this blog soon, as I am trying to set up another blog associated with my sound work. So far, it is not going well as I can't fathom out how to upload my own audio and video. I am not on Facebook, nor do I use SoundCloud or any 3rd party shareware regarding music/video. If I can't find out how to do it easily (and it needs to be easy believe me), then the blog won't get off the ground. I am currently waiting for my very patient son to 'read all about it' and get back to me. Watch this space!
