Just Pottering On
Spring days can be lovely warm and relaxing,
That was mine today
Yesterday when we went to get goat feed I popped into the garden centre I still had money on the gift card I was given for my birthday last November
I got some new strawberry plants, I brought young plants with me when we moved, and planted up loads of runners last year, I also have some I grew from seeds.
I fancied some new ones, this week I am going to get the strawberry bed all sorted.
We are ordering the new poly tunnel and fruit cage this week end,
now the fruit area is just about all planted up, if we want a good crop we need to get a fruit cage in place to keep the birds away from the crop.
The Lambs are coming on in leaps and bounds
As soon as they see us with there bottles they coming running,
They are nibbling on grass now as well and seem to be growing daily.
Yesterday we brought the Eglu back into use, and made a retirement home for the two Bantams
I hatched these out about 8-9 years ago, the big hens have been bullying them over in Chicken Villa, as they are both retired it was time to take them away for some peace and quiet, they will stay in the Eglu for a while then I will let out to free range the garden.
I was potting on the Chilli's today
tomorrow I need to pot some tomatoes and peppers,
I will leave them all indoors for another few weeks then start moving them out to the poly tunnel.
I got a start on some spring cleaning this morning,
cleaning windows, I do like clean windows.
I also got the bed stripped washed and out on the line in the sunshine,
Then got a bit of weeding done in the borders.
When I was walking Sol this afternoon the BT men were there replacing the broken telegraph poles, which means our temporary repair is now a proper repair.
Here,s to more sunshine days
