wordless Wednesday

I would so love to have a sea of daffodils the only problem is it would take up the whole garden.

What a Lovely Weekend

Although the forecast for Easter weekend was not good it has turned out to be a nice weekend so far fingers crossed it continues until Monday as there is lots to do in the garden. Although it is Easter weekend I have not had much time in my own garden Friday and Saturday was spent working in some of my customers gardens. It is the same on Monday as well one of the jobs I have been wanting to do for a wile was to enter the compost heaps all three of them they hold a m2 each of compost. the first was full of compost that was ready to use on the garden and the remaining two where turned over one into the other until we have an empty one ready to start filling again. The compost heaps are very important to the garden as they are the main supply of nutrient's for the garden especially as we grow using the no dig method. This took up most of the day with interruptions such as dropping of and picking up the daughters and cooking dinner but it was a good job well done and much needed. today I am turning my attentions to seed sowing  in the garden carrots, leeks, radish, spinach etc. spinach is one crop we treat almost like lettuce. With lots of regular sowings through out the year as we do use a lot in the kitchen we are still picking the crop we sowed in October last year and it should see us through until the crop we sowed in March is ready.
