Spring Clean

Today, as the weather has been clear, I’ve spent the day in the garden clearing up and sowing a few seeds into a propagator to start them off.

All year we save the cardboard tubes from the inside of toilet rolls, they make perfect biodegradeable pots for seedlings.

I have sowed some peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers. The peppers and tomatoes will grow in the new greenhouse when I’ve put it up; the cucumbers will grow outside up a trellis I’ve constructed out of old pallets nailed to the side of the log store.

Douglas the cat has been helping me today, testing out the new trellis to make sure it will be sturdy enough for the cucumbers when they are planted out.

Yes, everything seems to be in order here!
