We have finally found some time to spend in our garden and on our allotment. Being there is one of the most peaceful times, I find myself with an empty, calm mind and it’s blissful.
We are trying to do little by little at the moment rather than our usual tendency to over-exert ourselves one day and not come back for weeks. We have got some bark chippings down to mark out four beds and have started to plant in some seedlings.
These peas I’ve grown from seed – I’m just hoping the bunnies or slugs don’t munch on them.
We also have also got in some broad beans which I’ve also grown from seed.
Finally we finished off weeding my herb beds and have surrounded the plants with more of the wood chippings. The chives are looking great and I can’t wait to start using chive flowers in my cooking.
We have still got a long way to go if you look the other way down our allotment, but we’ve finally got the soil rich and full of worms. I want to get some courgette plants in, and maybe some summer squash and pumpkins, plus some flowers for cutting.
