Garden Update

I’m starting to get all excited about spring planting. The weather has been so cold and grey this winter but there have been a few tastes of spring recently:
The blossoms
A bit of sunny weather
Some slightly warmer days that scream of spring

Our local seedlings have been ordered for a November delivery (we have some late frosts) and the beds have been planned out so we hopefully get a bigger harvest this year.

I’ve been sorting through our seeds for the veggies we want to plant out directly like beans, snow peas, sugar snap peas, and carrots. We are also getting ready to grow our lettuces from seed as well as some more herbs like basil.

We have spent the last few weekends digging out some flower beds so that we can put in 2 more raised veggie beds at Granny B’s. As well as digging over the current summer garden beds. Just need to get some cow manure and chicken poo and they will be all set for planting.

And all things being well, we will hopefully have our new beds going in next weekend, ready for some soil :-) Yay!!
