Fantasy gardening
« on: October 29, 2020, 11:37 »
I知 settling down with my notebook to make plans for next year, which I do by crop types.

First on the list has been leafy greens, which we eat by the ton  :D  I have my seed list and successions planned, plus a rough idea of the plot areas I will be using. 

In my head, I am fast forwarding through the year, happily wandering through rows of chard, kale, mustard and various others, picking as I go.  It is all coming together.  What could possibly go wrong ...  ;)  :lol:

Great thing to do around now, Snows!

I used to have a mock-up spreadsheet in Excel, with every square ft measured out for the thirty-odd beds, and spent ages working out what to put where.

At the first opportunity, I'd start sowing in the spring, and put everything in different spots, and was totally confused by Easter...

You'll get a telephone call in the middle of your planning to run up the vertical hill in the rain to the allotment to deal with a stray "hen" belonging to who knows at the moment.  And that's the planning lost for a week.  ;)

Will now have to start again ....

In my head my garden looks like an area at Kew or Monty's. :D  At the moment it has the two fence panels that blew down a couple of weeks ago laying on it where we dragged them.  We've  replaced the panels as we were worried that as we are on the top of the cliff the wind would gust through the gap and take out the next ones but new ones would make a solid defence.

Like wighty my garden is a cool oasis of beauty.  In reality because I don't always agree with the undergardener it's a scene of chaos and confusion.  The dog has just started her City and Guilds Level one which involves digging holes in all the borders.

I have the same thing here, but don't have a dog - luckily, nothing has been 'planted' in said holes - so wonder what is going on? Squirrels looking for tulip bulbs left in last year? Who knows? but I wish they'd dig my allotment for me instead  :lol: :lol:
