Getting very restless but just too wet here to do much.  So stayed on my paths turned over my edges and cleared the couch (have to say very pleased with the results now after doing it about 5 times  :D).   

Planted 3 lavenders and planted the red & blackcurrent cuttings - they'd been in a pot and had started rooting and some healthy shoots forming so fingers crossed.

Just got back from a night time plot visit to drop off the trays of onion seedlings into the polytunnel. Was treated with utter contempt by the cat that was sat on my compost heap.

spend a lovely day with Mr Goose on the plot.

harvested the last of the leeks.  strimmed the paths, weeded all of the beds and planted some garlic/onion/shallot sets and some broad beans.

ive just sown some artichokes (never grown them before), so they are tucked up in the back bedroom keeping warm. :D

Some weeding (the weather is so mild, the weeds are already growing) and tidying up. Cut back the autumn raspberry canes.

Planted my elephant garlic, normal garlic, shallots and onion sets that I should have planted in Autumn. I struggle with my breathing so took me 5 hours to dig, rake and plant but it was an achievement.  Really pleased with myself.

This week made a new small raised bed, to be used for turnips mostly.
Emptied out the greenhouse, cleaned it in and out with a little soap and water. It is now gleaming.
Cleaned all the greenhouse shelving and redug and mixed in some new and homemade compost to the raised beds in there ready for the tomatoes and cucumbers later this year.
Have sown some broad bean after soaking them indoors for a few days.

Two fabulous days spent in my happy place.  Planted out my garlic; turned over the area where lavenders had been planted - couch was so thick and never ending but I'm winning.  Father in law kindly donated some concrete slabs so repoistioned the water butt and laid slabs for a standing platform in front of water butt & redcurrent bush.  Started to prune plum tree before someone lost an eye!  Dont think I've ever been this organised and tidy at this time of the year.  My year off definitely worked wonders.

Yesterday, finished off the palace roof & the hen house, gave the house another coat of paint, managed to tidy up a bit. Need to give everywhere a good hoeing over & tidy up some more.

Dug in a couple bags on hen house waste, lifted the last of the potatoes and leeks.  While we were there, the children were offered a raised bed each at the entrance to our site.  We've only got a half plot so we were flattered to be considered and the children (aged 5 and 9) are planning the combination of flowers and veg they want to grow.

Took the first grass clippings of the year to the compost heap and then planted out the sweetpeas that had overwintered in the polytunnel.
