Welcome to my new follower andrea.rey.
Yesterday, we spent a short time in the garden (just too cold in the wind despite the sun).
Three holes were dug in one raised bed and we half buried 3 containers. Into these went a mixture of compost and soil and then 3 potatoes were added to each. More compost/soil was added and then the bed covered with perspex which we shall open each day.
DB was busy in the garage chopping logs that were too big for our burner. Today he has an aching shoulder! Such is the problem with growing older. Maybe we need to invest in something that chops them for him.
The back garden fences have now all been painted. The driveway ones normally get done in summer. We actually had to water container plants as their soil was drying out!
We had our second roast lamb dinner followed by the final mini sticky date puddings. Also had a lovely long chat with DS. TheyY and FDiL's parents had been busy helping paint their lounge.
Today has started nice and sunny and positively balmy in the sun but still cold in the shade where I am working to empty the compost bin. We have just about got half way and I have put some away into bags ready to mix with other stuff to pot up my strawberries into their new home.
One smallish container's worth has been tipped onto each vegetable bed and hopefully, each will have the same amount again when we have finished.
I've also put wood ash around all fruit except the blueberries. I remembered to water it it as well otherwise it either blows away or forms a hard crust – neither of those situations is ideal.
We have now come in for leek, potato and lamb soup and I shall spend the rest of the day indoors, mincing up the remains of the lamb leg and making things to eat and freeze.
