Pondering and Dilemma's
The baby chicks are coming on great
There is two distinct colours 2 very pale and 2 golden, so does this mean I have 2 cockerels and 2 hens or has there been a mix up and I have 2 light Sussex and 2 of questionable parentage.
I hope its the former then I will keep a breeding trio, time will tell. A bit of a dilemma.
The Chickpeas have germinated
And the Lentils have germinated
Both have now been planted out in the poly tunnel, I put some supports up for them, so we will see how the get on.
I got some of the pigs liver out of the freezer sliced it up and popped it in the oven
It has now been cut into little chunks as a tasty healthy treat for Sol,
The rest of the day has spent weeding and planting out the bedding plants that were grown from seed, Zinnia and Cosmos hopefully they will add a splash of colour to the garden, I also planted out some Salvia and Verbascum plants that were grown from seed.
Watering the container plants and pots takes up a fair amount of time each day alone, The containers of mixed bedding are fed a tomato feed twice a week, now on gardeners world the other week a plant grower who specialises in container planting for all these big events said you should feed them every other day to get a good display.
Perhaps I will give that a try another dilemma to ponder over, what does everyone else do ?
