Welcome to my new follower(s) Roxie & Clem Yeah.
temperature outside is around 7 Celsius, it is dry (ground underfoot
very wet though) and on occasions, sunny.
After wrapping up to
go outside to work for the first time this year, we found we were a
little too warm!. I have been busy in the fruit cage removing the top
layer of wood chip. This is to allow us to put more grit into the
soil as well as a new layer of ericaceous compost.
Once that is done,
the wood chip will be put back down in an effort to keep out the
weeds. It seemed to work relatively well last year except for some mare's tail which is very difficult to get rid of so we don't even bother. This ancient, early world plant has survived this long, who are we to deny its existence. When up and in full 'green growth' it helps the garden look bushy!
DB was busy in the
compost area, beginning to lay bricks underneath the area where the
bins sit. We will leave gaps in the middle so the worms can keep
coming up but hope Mr. Rat doesn't find his way back in (or any of
We had a lovely tea
last night (don't celebrate Valentine's) of a cheesy jacket potato
(only the second time this season, must be slipping), tuna and salad.
I cooked 4 potatoes and the other two will be eaten as potato wedges
Also thawed a bag of faggots to have for tomorrow, don't think they will last until Sunday. We seem to be a day out in our household with walking on a different day, it has really thrown us.
