Re: Now it is Spring Time (Confirmed)

Lovely day down here again :) Over the last few days, I have planted out broad beans, sowed Kelvedon Wonder peas, and weeded the onions. Finished building the 8ft x 6ft x 18inches raised bed. Just got to fill it with a mixture of top soil and multi purpose compost now. I shall use it for carrots and...

Re: Now it is Spring Time (Confirmed)

I managed to get a row of peas in before the rain set in this afternoon.

It's been chucking it down ever since.

Re: Now it is Spring Time (Confirmed)

Planted the last of the Cara potatoes today. Just 4 short rows of Cara, 2 short rows of Charlotte, plus 3 tubs, and 13 tubs of Rocket. That's all I have room for now :( Broad beans are about ready to go out, along with the chard. Assisted my neighbour replacing the roof on one of my sheds on Tuesday...

Re: High Rise Worms

I've been moving things around in the back garden - I can't believe how many worms there are under everything at the moment! Trouble is my cats keep bringing them in as presents - when they drop them the worms make a bee line for dark spaces, so every time I lift up a rug - guess what I find! My ne...

Re: High Rise Worms

Hi Monika,

Thanks for that :)

I'll sort that out tomorrow. I suspect it's too wet.

High Rise Worms

Every time I open my half full 'dalek' compost bin, there are loads of worms sitting around just under the lid.

What are they doing up there, and who helps them get up there :)

Re: Welcome Spring, Bits and Bobs.

Westi Wonder if Wilko will get more seed in at the reduced price. Seems early in season to be clearing seed out altogether although I did notice they had a large range of Johnsons seeds. Maybe they are clearing out own brand in favour of more expensive branded ones The one in Folkestone has always ...

Re: Welcome Spring, Bits and Bobs.

There is a very good one on the way back from Canterbury to here. I went in there a few weeks back for some seeds and seed potatoes. I got the seeds OK, and could see the seed potatoes from where I was standing, but had to go through a maze of dead end aisles before I could get to them :) All manner...
