Its been quite nice to not have to worry about weeding, working, keeping the veggie patch under control during the winter.
Except now its Spring and the rhubarb is sprouting and I really need to think about what we’re going to grow this year. Like fewer courgettes, obviously!
So in a burst of enthusiasm and organisation I have my seed potatoes now chitting on the windowsill!
I have a plan for what we’re planting this year (should it be 3 or 4 courgette plants? What is the right amount so we don’t end up eating courgette with every single meal for weeks) and we’ve even got a corner where we’re going to have sunflowers!
Next door’s cess pool has overflowed again so the top end of the patch is nicely fertilised and I’ve had an afternoon of immense happiness using my own well rotted compost (!) on the asparagus bed. Admittedly its still a good year until we can have any asparagus off it but hey, it still makes me ridiculously happy that I’m growing the stuff.
And even better, it turns out that Mr Muddling doesn’t like asparagus so even more for me!!!
