Reminiscing

Well we are all so fed up with the weather right now so when I found these pictures from last summer I thought it would be great to post them....just a reminder of what is soon to come for us all!!

Fruit trees...yum yum!

Busy buzzy beehives!

More fruit trees.... enjoying the sunshine!

My first ripe saskatoon!!


I was so close to digging this up...

but was so glad I gave it a chance when
I noticed this leaf growing!!


A lovely shot of the plot from the beehives.
I think my broken bench gives it some character!!

As is the way every summer I
had to find the greengage tree....


Oh look....there you are!

A Tidy up of the Greenhouse

So after sorting out my seeds I realised that I really needed to get down and sort out my dead jungle of a greenhouse.

I didn't manage to get the tomato plants sorted from last year....or the other stuff I'd had growing in there and to be honest it ended up a bit of a dumping ground over the summer. I also had some broken post and stuff so I used some more of my week off to get things sorted.

I didn't take Polly with me this time....after all I was lugging stuff in and out and clattering about so there really wasn't room for her and that.

It took me a couple of hours to go through everything but I have to say I was pleased with how everything was looking when I left.

Stacked seed trays ready for planting.

Clear benches ready for growing.

Somewhere clean to relax...a hat should
we get a decent summer and clean cloths
to wipe my hands on!!
So everything is ready for me to get going. I haven't sown any seeds yet...I know many have but I don't like to start things off at home as it's a lot of work carrying stuff down to the allotment and when I have started to early in the past then things have died with late frosts so now I am just patient. Things work different for different people in different ares but I have found that this is what works for me so I'm happy to stick with it.
The wind still keeps picking up to 40+ mph outside and the heavy rains still keep coming and flooding but fingers crossed it wont be for too much longer....as the days get longer I really start to go a little stir crazy when I cant get outside!!
