This morning was so beautiful, and I had to be here, so it was wonderful to spend time in my Kitchen Garden. I re-prepared the next Sq Ft bed (cats had used it!!!) and added one layer of worm-post (!) and incorporated it well in. Then....to foil the cats....I protected the bed with some tunnel nets and a tunnel fleece. In a day or two I shall sow seeds there.
I also spent time in the tunnel potting on some brassica seedlings (romanesco Cauli, Hispi Cabbage, red cabbage, and some leeks. And I transplanted the dwarf beans I raised in modules into the tunnel bed. Everything in there needed a good watering, so I transferred the hose that brings the water to my in-tunnel irrigation system to a different butt. Two are now empty, one is half full.
I also potted on some Ivy leaved geraniums bought as tiny plants at Tesco's. Also some Petunias (Trailing).
Then I weeded the herb bed.
This afternoon I went to the plot to dig some more. When I'd finished I went towards my old plot to get one of the cabbages for dinner tonight. They had all gone. She'd dug them out! She phoned and asked me to move them (!!!) last week. Then I saw her mother and said I'd come and get them.....she said they weren't hearted yet and not to bother just yet. I took her at her word!...Oh dear! So we had some not quite ready spears of sprouting broccoli from the Kitchen Garden instead. They were tasty.
All in all I think I made best use of a really pleasant day. Tomorrow we are expecting rain....so more tunnel jobs to do I think.
