Some weeding and recording footage to make a you tube. Harder than it looks.

Video was completed after half a day!

Really mild day so managed to dig over and weed the bed where the leeks had been, add composted manure to it and cover it with weed matting.

A quick 10 mins in almost darkness to add 30 kilos of coffee grounds, a welcome source of greens after all the browns Christmas cardboard 😁😁👍

With the better half (better digger at least) we dug over 1 of our 4 portage beds
Got rid of the weeds, found some forgotten about ocra (enough for 1 meal) gave away lots of oxeyed Daisyís ready for manuring tomorrow!!
Cut back all the lavender
Dealt with some of the invasion of strawberry runners in the second bed.
Hoping to pick up some poop tomorrow and get these 2 beds covered.  :D

Sorted the garlic in storage that was harvested in July, planned out a shed extension and priced up materials, pulled a few leeks then rain stopped play.

Rain stopped play here as well, but I did got a few things done at home.

I picked up a tray of violas of 20 decent sized plugs of a pretty pastel mix for £6 a week or so ago.  They have been dotted through pots of spring bulbs and provided a nice module tray for me to re-use  :)

On the same garden centre trip, I found a couple of packs of overwintering onions for 50p each.  They were in good condition, so must have been in the stores out the back, rather than on the shop floor.  There were 35 sets in each pack, plus a couple extra.  I only chucked a couple away as they were squishy, so 70 planted in a raised bed.  I'll grow them for giant spring onions and for £1, even if they don't all work, I reckon I can't go far wrong  :D

Also checked the shed and found the garlic just starting to sprout.  Cue bringing them in for roasting and freezing in ice-cube trays.  The greenhouse also got a sort out and water.

Spread out some longor shallot sets in the shed, then dug a raised bed over ready for them to be planted into, bad daylight stopped play!

We managed to get hold of another water butt so did some repositioning, my lovely OH took two bags of rubbish to the tip that had previously been cleared out of the shed.

Also tidied up my strawberry bed- not sure it was a good thing to do yet but they were a tangle of runners and couch & I know before long there will be loads to do and I'll be pushed for time so it's a case of needs must.  It was freezing & trying to rain but we loved it over there.

Again in the greenhouse gave the chicken palace another coat of paint & then I potted up the primulaís I bought in Lidl on Thursday along with1/2 dozen wallflowers Iíd forgotten about,, a hellebore Iíd bought maybe as a gift for Christmas but didnít give & the small conifer & red berry plant that Iíd put in my Rudolph wicker planter for Christmas.
Oh & 10 tulip bulbs that were lurking in the  shed.
Ended up with 4 pots of plants, 3 placed near the front door & 1 outside the kitchen patio doors. Came in for a hot cuppa & a good warm as boy was it chilly

Didn't get to the plot today, but scrubbed off the ink off all of last years plant labels. Three years use now out of most of them.

Sowed tomatoes (4 varieties)  Chillies (3 varieties) and Giant Prague Celeriac.  Put some compost into bags and then into the greenhouse for some first first earlies.  I'll be sowing them in a week or two.
