So where's the snow?

Something new

The garden has emerged from the snow, and is looking really scraggy. Dave and I have decided that its time to give up on the veggie plot. In the eleven years we’ve been here, things have changed and we can now buy parsnips and  sweetcorn here in the supermarkets.

This is combined with my lack of interest in weeding during the summer, and Dave’s lack of time. We’re going to move the flower bed back towards the fence with the soft fruits and grass it over. Will make mowing easier too.

We will keep on the two greenhouses (ours and Paggy’s one)  for pumpkins, melons and some salads. I want to chop down the tree we call Wizbit (after a children’s programme) because the dogs digging under it seem to have injured it and it looks it.

That will open up the garden even more. We would just like someone to come along and steal our hedge so we don’t have to trim that!

Dave and I decided that this year, we would use our own, home grown compost for the greenhouse.

The melons are growing and I may actually have ripe tomatoes before August. The Hokaido squashes are going to be amazing!
