It seems like ages since I've been out in the garden, with all the rain we had over December and January I lost a lot of my veggies and herbs (that were really almost at the end of their season anyway) and with all the hot weather that has followed I've not wanted to even be outside. I've been a bit slack...But it has all changed today. Thanks as always to all those lovely bloggers and their inspiring gardens I picked up my shovel, put on my hat and ventured out into the veggie patch once again. I ripped out the last of what was left and dug, and mixed and mulched and then I planted.
I decide that this time round I would raise most of my seed to seedlings before I plant them in the ground. I have seen the newspaper roll seedling pots around on a many blogs now and thought I might try this method. It was actually quite a fun activity for the whole family. . . .
I had (whilst been hiding inside on these hot days) done a small amount of research into how I was going to plant this season..I stumbled across this great website Gardenate it is a very easy to read site about planting seasons and the best part about it is that you can subscribe to receive a reminder for what to plant each month...I think this will work for me! No more digging around the garden books looking for planting guides, this means more time out in the garden for me. . .
